With the announcement that BBC2 is going to air all five seasons of The Wire, everyone is quick to jump on the bandwagon and tell their praise. The show is scheduled for 1120pm, and will be on every night for the next 12 weeks.

Five season of the Wire is gone. It’s been one hell of a ride. Big ups and downs.
Have to say that I thought the ending was pretty damn perfect. A little bit sentimental, but not over the top. And even if the show came to and end, the city and streets continue to live its life…
Cheers to you McNulty, Bunk, Daniels, Rhonda, Kima, Herc, Ellis, Lester, Bubbles, Omar, Prez, Burrell, Bodie, Avon, Stringer, Carcetti, Marlo, Chris, Bunny, Cutty, Poot, Snoop, Prop Joe, Duke, Clay Davis, Wee-Bey, D’Angelo, Clarence, Valchek, Monk, Shamrock, Fitz, Sobotka, Gus, Scott, The Greek, Butchie, O-Dog, and the rest of you!
One of my favourite scenes, when McNulty gets profiled 🙂 Pure genious!
What’s your favourite The Wire moments, from any season?
Today I stumbled upon an old but interesting blog post about the Wire’s credit sequence. The post discuss how it differs from your average television show credits.
…The Wire’s four credits sequences don’t fit any of these descriptions; the images are taken out of context from the season’s 12 episodes and arranged in a pattern that only makes sense if you watch the show closely. Most significantly, the content changes significantly from season to season
A well written, long and recommended read.

Spoiler Warning Season 4!
Bodie Broadus of Barksdale’s crew has a firm following of fans. As a member of facebook, I recently joined the group Murdaland: forever home of Bodie Broadus, the realest G to run a corner. As of writing the group has attracted 321 members. So if you’re a Bodie fan, join in.
About the group:
From a loyal member of the Barksdale crew to an independent running his own corner, Bodie was a real G. He followed orders from above like a true soldier and never backed down even when he knew the hit was coming.
This group is here to represent the realest character on The Wire: the realest show on TV, not just HBO.
And below’s a clip of his last chat with mcnulty, and ultimate fight for his corner with Chris and Snoop, and fatal shot by O-Dog (no, it wasn’t Mike)
