    Hahahahaha did you not know? She's real too, her story is very interesting.

    Her scene in the DIY shop is brilliant

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    The actress or the character is 30? Surely no surprise that she was female though!

    I think she was inside for bumping someone off in real life if I recall.

    Snoop was introduced to the show by the Actor who plays Omar Little, he met her in a club in Body-more when he was filming the first couple seasons.

    I'm re-watching this, on the last episode of season 4.

    I love those silent monologues that David Simon dots around, Actors seem to work really hard to pull them off too. The scene where Lester Freamon figures out that the Vacant's are tombs by the fresh nails.

    "The actress has a troubled past, having been convicted at age 14 of second-degree murder. More recently, she refused to testify as a witness at a murder trial and was arrested at her then-Northeast Baltimore home."
    Bloody hell.

    As for Omar

    Figgis nailed it, no one goes out the way they expect, most of Omar's myth was just that (As seen at the end when the corner boys are talking about his death in exagerated terms), he was just as human as anyone else and it was pure luck he made it as far as he did.

    I know this comment is from months ago, but I just read it and I disagree. It was part of Omar's legend that he wouldn't put his gun on a kid or a civilian. And that's how he died - a tiny little hopper killed him, because he thought he was just a kid - so he pointed his gun at him, then looked away and got a bullet through the brain.
    You can also see Michael becoming the new Omar at the end of the series - just like Omar, he's one of the best around, having been well-trained by Marlo's highly skilled crew.

    Need to get back to this watched up to the end of S3 and not gone back for a few months.

    Loved it just wanted it to last a bit longer so spaced it out.

    I used to be a gamer like you, then I took an arrow in the knee.

    Omar Little is by far my favourite character in the show. However, every character is developed so well it's hard to see any of them go, and for the show to end.

    I can't, get, enough. I'll be watching The Corner and Generation Kill again after this.

    So it would appear that I missed the last 2 episodes of Season 4 some how, 5 makes a lot more sense now! haha. They could have cancelled right there, of course I'm glad they didn't.

    How is that disagreeing with what I said?

    And are you saying that Omar saw Kenard pull a gun and looked away? in which case you are wrong, or at least making a massive assumption. He didn't see Kenard as a threat as he was just a kid, but he was still not the bulletproof ninja people thought he was.

    I love how in the first season Omar is kind of sold to the viewer as a total asshole messing up the main characters thing. By the end of it he's just the nuts and you want him to come out on top. One of the greatest tv show characters ever IMO.

    FCUTA!

    Oh, Indeed.

    Reaching the end of season 5 That scene where that little corner hopper kills Omar. Soon as it came on I had to pause to prepare myself to lose him, so sad :( I'm totally gay for Omar.

    And when McNulty visits Quantico FBI reads out a Character analysis for the Homeless murders. Basically out lining McNulty's Character to a T. Funny stuff.

    Well that's me finished The Wire. Turns out I missed the Finale on my first run through it.

    It's an apt fair well to the show. In the end, everything is the same.

    FX are showing The Wire alongside The Corner from next month for those who have still yet to experience either.

    I have concluded that the most heinous, irritating prick on The Wire is:

    Scott Templeton:

    All the other supposed "bad" characters either had strong motivation or were just products of their environments. The cartoon bad-guys like Marrimow never got much in the way of recognition and were likely just old bitter cunts.

    Here is a guy with an education, a good career (so you might have to move to another paper) and no real reason to fuck people over but he proceeds to lie his arse off and throw a temper tantrum the second he realises his editor is on to him. He then shows NO conscience AT ALL when his actions lead to two of his colleagues being displaced due to him being a slimly, weasily cunt and to top it off we see him win a Pulitzer at the end.

    I would like to think it comes out in the long run he lied and him and the two tossers who backed him have to give it back and end up fucked for life...

    Now onto the Fourth season and i can say with confidence its way better then The Sopranos. The quality of the characters and the writing is superb.

    Season 5 is my favourite, although I know a lot of people won't agree.

    Regardless, it's a fantastic show!

    Really? Even better then season 3? The way they handled Stringer bells death made my jaw drop.
  • Deleted user 12 April 2011 15:06:42
    Didn't like the way that Mcnulty got handled in season 5. Seemed out of character even for him.

    Yeah, I just love the new aspect they bring in (don't want to say too much). It's definitely a little more "out there" compared to other seasons, and perhaps isn't as realistic.

    I was gutted when your spoiler happened, wasn't the same after that I didn't think :(
