  1. It is too hard to pick just one but
    Bunk and Omar are always near the top os my list.
    As far as the second tier characters, I have a soft spot for Butchie.
    But srsly ya’ll, where’s the love for that fine upstanding politician Clay Davis?
    Sheeeeeeeeee it!!!!!!!!

  2. easily the best show ever. every single character, and actor, had/have so many dimensions. snoop, dukie, prez, bunk, carcetti, bunny, omar. just list them all.

  3. It is beyond criminal CRIMINAL that this show has never once garnered more than a single EMMY nomination!!!!. I mean Hank freakin Azaria was nominated for “Huff” a show no one watched yet Dominic West, Clarke Peters, and Wendell Pierce haven’t even had a sniff at the TV critics supposed “Best Show on TV”
    Anyway my favorite characters have got to be McNulty and Omar. They are really two sides of a coin. The good guy everyone loves hate and the bad guy the everyone loves.
    Easily the best show on TV and the only TV show I own on DVD. No show has ever had 4 separately distinct seasons while maintaining a superior level of quality in acting, direction, and production. Truly a masterpiece in the history of American Television.

  4. I love Bunk, Omar, Poot, Prop Joe, Cheese, Brother Mouzone, McNulty, Bubs, Daniels, Greggs, Freamon, Herc, Bodie, Bunny…the list goes on and on. I think my favorite characters are probably Poot and Prop Joe.
    I hated Ziggy.
    What an awesome show. It is on demand and I have watched all the first season, which is probably about my third time and I am halfway through season two.

  5. bdub…I’ve been doing the same with On Demand and what lead to this post. I was sick the other day and watched all of season 2. I hated Ziggy as well.
    Lib4…everything you said…true dat

  6. just a heads up- Season Five, the final season of The Wire, which will take on journalsim and the media as the season theme, will debut January 6, 2008.
    For those uninitiated to this truly amazing show, now would be a good time to catch up on the first four seasons. It may take a bit to get into it at first- it’s not “regular” television, but:
    As scout and the others here will attest, it’s worth it.

  7. I love Bunk, too. And for fans of Wendell Pierce, he’ll be playing Vladimir in four performances of “Waiting For Godot”, twice this weekend on a deserted lot in the Lower 9th Ward, and twice next weekend on the roof of a gutted house in Gentilly.
    Wendell went to high school with me and G Bitch and Lolis Elie and the Marsalises. We are quite the star-studded bunch. I mean, except for me. OK, fine, so I mean *they* are a star-studded bunch. Anyway, Bunk is cool.

  8. Dear Sir/Madam,
    After my official enquiry from the foreign trade office of the chambers of commerce & industry here in Johannesburg South Africa, I decided to contact you but I did not disclose the intention to anyone else because of the delicate nature of the project. I found your profile very interesting and decided to reach you directly to solicit for your assistance and guidelines in making a business investment and transfer of US$65,000,000.00(sixty-five million) to your country within the next few days.
    Please I must plead for your confidence in this transaction. I am a high placed official working with Department of (Finance & Economic Affairs) in Johannesburg. I and two other colleagues are currently in need of a silent foreign partner whose identity we can use to transfer this sum of money. But at this moment, I am constrained to issue more details about this profitable business investment until I get your response by email, please if you can take out a moment of your very busy schedule today to respond back to my private email below for more details and include your private telephone number in your response which I and my colleagues will highly appreciate.
    This fund accrued legitimately to us as commission from foreign contracts, through our private connections.
    The fund is presently waiting to be remitted from the bank here in South Africa to any overseas beneficiary confirmed by us as associate/receiver. By virtue of our positions as civil servants in my country, we cannot acquire this money in our names. Because as high placed civil servants, we are not allowed by the civil service code of conduct to own or operate bank accounts outside of our shores. On the other hand, it is not safe for us to keep the money here due to unstable political environment. I have been mandated as a matter of trust by my colleagues, to look for an overseas silent partner who could work with us to facilitate transfer of this fund for our mutual benefit, hence the reason for this email.
    My proposal is that after you receive the funds, it would be shared as follows: (1) 15% to you as commission for your co-operation and assistance in facilitating the transfer, while the remaining 85% belongs to me and two colleagues. You will be free to take out your commission immediately after the money hits your account in your country. Since our objective is to invest the money in a foreign country, it would be appreciated if you could also help us with advices and direction on investing into profitable ventures in your country.
    However, this is optional, and if it is not convenient for you to further assist us with investing the money, we can end our cooperation after you make available to me our part of the money. The transaction, although discreet, is legitimate and the money will be transferred successfully with all necessary back-up official documents showing the legitimate source/origin of fund. The transfer will be affected within a period not longer than two weeks as soon as we reach an agreement and you furnish me with a suitable response indicating your interest for processing the transfer. I plead with you on one issue, whether you are interested or not, kindly do not expose this information to any one else. I confirm that the transaction is legitimate and without any risks either to yourself or us. Please, give me your response immediately by returning this mail through my alternative email address.
    Yours Faithfully,
    Mr. Sipho Mohau.
    Finance & Economic Affairs Dept. (South Africa)
