The homie blackink12 said he was just finally getting down to watch ‘The Wire.” Better late than never, right?
Looking back at this clip got me all amped. How did this show get us to root for all the people we ended up rooting for? (Not the middle schoolers in season four; you had to root for them.) Stringer Bell? Prop Joe? Man.
My favorite quote isn’t here. When we first meet Bodie, he’s just a short-sighted, headstrong foot soldier. By the time we get to that scene with him and McNulty at the Arboretum a few seasons later, he’s just completely ground up. “I feel old,” he mutters to no one in particular. In context, it’s absolutely devastating.
What do you think is missing from this?
