The Wire – Where are they now?

The Telegraph has an interesting article on the Wire cast and what they are up to now that the show has finished.

Last time i spotted my personal favourite “McNulty” was in Frank Millers 300.

The Wire Season 5 Episode 7 Review

Clay Davis is one slick smooth talker. Damn, he got ’em all wrapped around his little finger. Sheeeeiiit. Don’t really like that man.

McNulty’s trying to do good with his new resources, but I’m still fairly confident that he will f*ck up soon. The writing’s on the wall unfortunately. With the homeless people getting faces and families, it’s all getting too personal.

Same thing with Omar. Good to see him giving Michael a bit of scare, but I’m still pretty sure he will make a misstake soon – it’s just too personal for him. And that limp leg doesn’t really help either…

Bunk seem to be about to crack soon, don’t think he’ll rat on McNulty or Freamon, but he’s pretty pissed off. Also liked the scene when he’s interrogating Michael. Hope he gets to Chris and Snoop soon.

btw, did you notice that Dominic West (playing McNulty) directed this episode? How cool is that!

I’ll leave you today with a brilliant edit of Clay Davis – sheeeeeeeeeiiiiiit!

The Wire Season 5 Episode 5 Review

Yepp, a little bit late I know. But I’ve finally got the time to type up my impressions of episode 5 (just in time for tonights episode 6, can’t wait!).

For the first time during the course of this show, I’m starting to doubt McNulty. I admin I thought him and Freamon were doing the right thing, but with the twist and turns of this episode their means doesn’t seem to justify their motives. Is it all starting spiralling out of control? It was however pure joy to watch the confusion in the room when mcnulty and the young journo (never remember his name…) where lying their asses off about the phone calls.

And even with the success of a wire tap, it seem that the Greeks are a lot more sofisticated than the average dealers using secure channels on their phones and such.

And Omar, what a mess he got himself in. Hope I gets out on top, but from the looks of it that won’t happen.
