Favorite season and characters?

This.

Here were mine from my Wire thread from a year and a half ago after I finished it:
quote:

Best seasons (or should I say my favorite) are 1 and 4...I really liked the whole dynamic of the Barksdale organization, and season 4 with the kids was really interesting to me.

quote:

Favorite character overall is prolly Cutty for me. Other favorites are Bubbles, Omar, Stringer, Slim Charles, Bodie, Chris Partlow, and Marlo. Least favorite is Snoop (by a fricking TON...she fricking sucked bad), Cheese, Greggs, Daniels's wife, Clay Davis (sheeeeeeeeeeeeet....), Namond Brice, and prolly a few more I can't think of.

My #1 show all time.

The Barksdale operation in season one would have wrecked shop on Marlo.

Natural Po-lice.

And side-note: Why does no one else ever mention Sergei Malatov as a favorite character? Dude was a boss.

"Did he have hands? Did he have a face? Yes?... Then it wasn't us... idiot..."

"Boris. Why always Boris?"

She's worth being on the show just for the part where she buys the nail gun

The Wire and Breaking Bad are No. 1 & No. 1A for me.

Yes. I would strongly recommend it for anyone who hasn't watched it yet.

re: I just finished The Wire.
The reason Snoop did such a great job with the part is she wasn't acting

quote:

Pearson was born to two incarcerated drug addicts and raised in an East Baltimore foster home. She met her biological parents very few times; her mother was a crack addict and her father a stick-up man.


quote:

Instead of attending school, Pearson worked as a drug dealer. At the age of 14, she was convicted of second-degree murder in the shooting death of a girl named Okia Toomer and sentenced to two eight-year terms, to be served consecutively, at the Maryland Correctional Institution for Women in Jessup, Maryland. She was released after 6.5 years.

quote:

On March 10, 2011, Pearson was arrested along with 60 others for alleged drug offenses. The arrest was made during a predawn raid at her home in Baltimore following a five-month DEA operation.

quote:

she pleaded guilty to the charges a day before her trial was to begin. She was sentenced to a suspended seven-year prison term, with credit for time served, and given three years of supervised probation.

She wasn't the only gang-banger on cast.

I remember my first experience with Idras Elba was as Stringer Bell, and when I hear him talk with his British accent I was like wtf???
