THE WIRE SPOILERS AHEAD !
You've been warned bitches !
This show, THIS SHOW !
I felt like this season just......completely breezed me, maybe it was because I went ahead and watched almost three episodes a day, but it was just incredible, it ended too soon for me, I couldn't get enough of Chris and Snoop, of Dukie and Randy, of Bubbles and Sherrod, of Carcetti and Norman, of Namond and Colvin, just not enough !
I don't think I've ever been really dissapointed at any direction the show has taken, but even putting McNulty in "grunt duty" seemed so perfect for his character, even if it meant I would get to see one of my favorite characters less this season, for whatever little scenes we got of him, he was just great, Beadie's kids calling him "McNulty" was fucking gold
, or his relationship with Bodie, awesome stuff.
For starters, I must say that the SHEER AMBITION of this season astounded me, The Public Office, The Police Department, Homicide, CID, Major Crimes, Barksdale's remaining crew, Marlo's crew, Prop Joe, Omar and his new boyfriend, The co-op, The schools, the kids...
I thought Simon and crew were probably biting way more than they could chew after the first episode was finished, but goddamn did the finale just brought it all to a perfect closure, in my opinion, and leaving me with hunger for what is to come for the next season, it's just great to see how everything really found some sense of closure, even if it wasn't a happy one for everyone...............poor Randy
One thing I never expected though, was the death of Bodie.
I don't think I ever mentioned it, but at that moment in the first season where he killed Wallace, he just fell to an incredibly low point to me, I despised him so badly, through the seasons I was amazed at how the show had kept him alive for so long, it was clear all along why people could always find "comfort" in Omar, the latter just wasn't a hypocrit, and he never had any delusions about himself, even Bodie was partially wrong about Little Kevin's death, even as sincerely hurt as he was by his death.
So it kinda surprised me that I would be rooting for him in his final scenes, to somehow expect "The Game" wouldn't eat him, but so it was. It makes me wonder, did many other people hate Bodie ? Did they like him ? Was he as despised by others as he was by me ?
Now this is a very personal opinion of mine, but I ask because, to me, it was the single most honorable moment in a goddamn police show when we, showrunners and audience, can truly acknowledge the problem instead of believing that justice is an issue merely solved by punishment, why exactly "honorable" ? Because McNulty, the prototypical "main cop" of the show, is pushing himself to bringing Marlo down with Freamon and the others to avenge the death of a corner drug dealer, and I find that to be nothing less than amazing.
There's really A SHITLOAD
of stuff I could talk about, but this would probably be the longest post I could ever put in this here forum.
SO T3CII ! Ask away
