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 4 Review

Damn, Marlo is one cold gangster. Looking at his face, not even a raised eye brow, when Prop Joe gets the bullet. I really hope Omar will get back hard on Marlo, he’s just getting to damn cocky for my taste. I’m sure he will… And while he’s at it, please do the Greeks also, some creepy people.

McNulty and Freamon are really working the case, it’s kind of creepy seeing them messing around at the crime scene. Well, it’s for the greater good at least. I wonder if Bunk will ever come around.

Also in the news room (haven’t really gotten into this so much yet), things are at the boiling point. Dreams of the Washingon Post got squashed and some of the senior staff appeared as even bigger asses as before (if even possible!)

And on the note on McNulty, man he’s one screwed up anti-hero. Looks like his family life is about to go down the drain, but who’s surprised? Not me… Let McNulty be McNulty 😉

In city hall things are also about to reach boiling point, Carcetti struggling with the numbers and Rhonda making (not so anymore) mighty men sweat. Sheeeeeit! And oh, Burrell made a decision…

Think this was one of the strongest episodes of the Season so far. What do you think?

The Wire Season 5 Episode 3 Review

Things are truly starting to heat up on the wire season 5.

Stop reading if you haven’t seen episode 3 yet.

A few favourite moments from the episode:

  • McNulty trying to get an agents attention talking about ‘the red ribbon’ – great because it was so over the top comedial, but still works for the Wire as we all know that there really are people that thick
  • Prop Joe commenting how hard it is going to be to civilize Marlo (who doesn’t really grasp the concept of having money on the bank, where you can’t see or touch it).
  •  ‘Omar is coming” I’m pretty sure he will make quite an impression in Baltimore soon. RIP Butchie.
  • The Greeks are back in action

What’s your favourite moments from the wire episode 3?

The Wire Season 5 Episode 1 in Review

I bet you did the same thing as me this weekend – watching the first episode of the wire season 5.I loved the opening scene, bunk in fine form interrogating a seemingly clueless small time gangster, and later using a copying machine as a lie detector – instant classic.  It was also great to see McNulty early on in the episode, I missed him in the later seasons but now he seem to be back where he belongs, in the spotlight and late night binge drinking sessions.

Another bright point was the journo crew at the Baltimore Sun which seem to be just as much of a  motley crew as the gangsters and police.

It was great to see so many familiar faces in one single episode – McNulty, Bunk, Kima, Herc, Marlo, Prop Joe, Bubs, Carter, Carcetti, Chris, Snoop, Michael, Dukie (boy, he’s grown) and lots more. 

I just realized how much I missed these characters, and how happy I am that they are back J

How do you rate the first episode of season 5?

The Wire Prequels – Young Omar and Proposition Joe and When McNulty met Bunk

Today the Wire Season 5 will air on HBO, and we’ll celebrate with a few golden clips.

The Wire Season 5 DVD boxes will apparently have some unique content on them, prequel material where you’ll see the gangsters growing up. It’s awesome to see how Omar only played people in the game from day one, and prop joe beeing a slick business man even as a kid.

Another great prequel moment is when McNulty met Bunk. Check it out!

The Secrets of The Wire Season 5 – Dirty Money and Private Eyes?!

Carcetti Getting Dirty?!While I’m eagerly awaiting the next and final season 5 of the Wire, I don’t really want to know beforehand about any plot twists. But on the other hand, it’s still very tempting to read all the gossip floating around the web on this topic. So, if you don’t want to risk getting the future plot spoiled, you might wanna stop reading here…

According to Japadamus, below are the main plot events for the Wire season 5:
