He's just worried about his stupid camera.  Bubbles and Randy could have or could yet die because of him.

Oh yeah.  I forgot about that.  He was being a jerk.  Don't worry though.  Bubbles will get his revenge.

Ack, don't say anything!   DirecTV is only up to Season 4.   But I AM hoping that Bubbles does something...... and soon.   I dont see the thug having a long life.

And I can see why Herc is concerned about his CI Fuzzy Dunlap.

Sorry.  I thought I was being vague enough without outright saying that

I seem to remember that the season 4 closing was pretty disappointing.  The wrap-up of the plotline with Wee-bay's son is nice though.  I think that the fat sergeant in charge of the homicide unit has a somewhat heartwarming moment too.

First off, I love the guy that plays Clay "sheeeeet" Davis!

I really like how each season takes a look at various parts of Baltimore besides just the police

Season 1:   The war on drugs at the street level
Season 2:   The shipping and port crimes
Season 3:   Drugs at the higher up level
Season 4:   Politics and the Schools
Season 5:   The newspaper industry

I have a strong feeling that the reporter who made up the story about the wheel chair kid at the game is gonna take a big fall soon.

The newspaper editor is probably a LOT like David Simon is himself.

McNutly seems to have lost his mind.

I have to think that McNulty might take a big fall too.

I've hated him ever since he turned on Ned Stark.

I can't keep most of the characters names straight.  Was Ned Stark the guy who Carcetti tricked into running for mayor to split the black vote?

Ned Stark is the Lord of Winterfell (It was a Game of Thrones joke. The actor playing Carcetti is also on GoT)

Watch that cross-referencing, Kete.

And if you think keeping track of names on The Wire is difficult, give Game of Thrones a watch!

So is he not actually a character on The Wire?
