I had a very tough time finding it online as well. That site ^ started with season 5 and updated it with the older eps.

so it took me forever to watch season 5 on the internet with all the clips being seperated into so many parts and terrible buffering times, but it was worth it for sure.

2 was my least favorite season and 1 was probably my favorite. i wasnt a big fan of the journalism aspect of season 5 (even though i graduated with a journalism degree, go figure). it was just dry and boring and scott was such a weasel.


i actually stayed so far away from anything that was wire related as to not get spoiled in any aspect, but actually did like 2 weeks ago, while i was in the process of watching season 5. i was reading the newspaper and omar's character had come to speak at a high school here in philly, and in the first paragraph the writer introduces him by saying "the last time we saw michael k williams he was being put in a bodybag after being shot by a 9 yr old boy in a corner store". of course the very next episode i watched was the one where omar was killed. i think the point of him being done like that was the no honor thing. that, and he was slippin a little bit. he wasnt watching his back.

i wish we would have heard a little bit more about randy in season 5 just to see what ever came of him. i was hoping to see an avon sighting in the last episode as well, but we only caught a shot of wee-bay.

jimmy's unraveling could be seen a mile away. i was just surprised lester was implicated as well. i figured he was going blackmail someone somehow.

how about herc? he basically caused all the commotion by giving marlo's cell number and then also tipping levy about the wire-tap.

i was a little confused about marlo's strolling up to the street corner in his business suit and then ending up getting shot. what i got out of it was that even though he was "out of the game" he was still that same old corner boy and still prone to that lifestyle but it was just kinda strange to me to see that go down.

and of course, i wanted to see what exactly jimmy was going to end up as. you sort of saw everyone's place except his.

last point....i think i was more emotionally attached when wallace was killed in season 1 than any other part. that whole scene really got to me.

im willing to discuss anything now that ive seen em all. im really sad that i have no more wire to watch. :~(

I think that was relating Marlo back to Stringer Bell. Stringer kept trying to leave the street behind and did not care about his reputation. Marlo realized that he did not belong in the corporate, and he really did not want to leave the street anyway. Marlo unlike Bell (more like Avon), wanted his name to be known.

I think Jimmy was roughly based on Ed Burns (with his detail to the FBI). When Burns retired from the force he had no idea what he was going to do with his life. And Jimmy has no idea what he is going to do.

the fact that so little people post in here, means so many people are missing out on one of the best series that was on television.

Yeah I'm on episode 8. Shouldn't be too hard to not see spoilers since the show is over.

4 episodes into season 4 and nothing has been spoiled yet! But, I've been careful. I haven't liked season 4 as much as the first 3 so far, but it's still better than almost anything. I'm holding off judgment until season 5 is finished but I think this is probably my favorite TV show I've seen.

i knew you'd feel this way...you sure went through them fast ( as i did as well. i just couldnt get enough. i was watching literally 4-5 hours every night).

im actually rewatching them now with my girlfriend and we're 6 or 7 episodes through season 4. she's enjoying it as well.

i liked season 4 but for a couple new reasons than i did the previous 3 seasons. whenever someone asks me to rank the seasons, its very hard for me to do so since they're all very good, but very different.

id go 1,3,4,2,5 i think. ive only seen 5 watching online, and i feel that when/if i watch them on dvd, ill enjoy them more than i did, but there were some aspects of season 5 i just did not like. still very very good, but not as good as before.


id like to hear some of your thoughts on characters and scenes thus far jfg. favorites/least favorites?
