    Omar was the GOAT.

    Real shame, as said brilliant in this and Boardwalk Empire as the greatly named Chalky White.

    That courtroom scene when he's goading the lawyer was outstanding

    If nothing else is on, or just killing time before going out or something, usually stick the Sopranos or this on my IPTV box, as they both have 24/7 channels.

    Have just noticed the first episode of We Own this City has appeared on my box as well. A lot of people involved with The Wire are in this, been looking forward to it. Thought Marlo was a great character in The Wire, think Jamie Hector actually plays a polis in this which will be interesting.

    Easily the best I've seen. Also on a sidenote,season two,which was widely percieved to be the weakest,was outdtanding.I loved the whole union side of it.

    * * wonder if he had cancer or something. Guy was a unit, really impressive physique. Was chuffed when he starred in Horizon games and also Quantum Break on Xbox. Gutter.

    It is a gutter mate, and I said exactly same thing to my Mrs there. Seemed a really fit guy.

    Watching The Wire now, finally getting through it after stalling on season 2.

    The dog fight in the second episode of season 3 is hilarious. Dogs are playing with each other, with mad sound effects over it. Was creasing.

    Excited for these 3 seasons.

    Pandemic...got that pandemic.

    Season 4 might be the best..seriously good viewing,and that’s without some of the big hitters from the first few seasons.

    I love all the seasons in their own right,but 4 with its focus on the schools and politics is unbelievable story telling.

    Frank Sabotka walking down the pier at the end of 2 hits hard but 4 is darker,scarier than that...the thing with Chris and Snoop and the derelict buildings,Michael’s story,Dookie’s no chance at life,Omar,poor Bubbles.It’s all happening.

    Also a kind of cool wee thing just noticed is that Randy has the same second name as Cheese...
