season 2 was underrated in my opinion, when they pulled frank sabotka out of the water it gave me goose pumps. We still don't know who the "greek" was in the end. My favorite characters were Avon, Stringer, brother muhammad, D'angelo and Marlo.

By the way the Wire is the best show I've watched. The character development is amazing and how characters are interconnected is brilliant. Season 1 starts slowly but you'll be hooked as it goes along. Season 2 was meh but pay close attention as it develops, Season 3 was my favourite by far.

Oz and Sopranos are also really good as mentioned. Loved watching Ryan O'Reilly outsmart everyone in prison. Also loved seeing Omar Little fight. Dude was crazy as hell I might have to give The Sopranos the nod over Oz though. I have really been getting into it lately.

Stringer and Omar are by far the best characters on the show.

Marlo is a b. itch. Prop Joe teaches Marlo the game, but he ends up betraying Joe...Weak stuff.

He tries too hard not to show any emotions. Marlo only shows his emotions to his gay ass birds.

Yeah, Marlo was a btch. Omar though, even though he was a fakit was the best character. Tbh though, they were all great characters and well developed. I watched the wire after reading about it on ISH too, probably the best thing ISH has contributed to my eyes.

" Omar comin!" This is how I use to feel when I was in trouble as a child and my mom was grabbing a leather belt or shoe...the fear is great

The only non major character that I can't see how anyone could dislike. Dude was the Lamar Odom of the game had so much potential but was content with staying in his lane and play the loyal soldier.

Love the character growth with Bodie. Me and my boy always joke about Bodie walking around du-rag with the flap out.

And I hated Marlo towards the end they made him untouchable.

Damn all this reminiscing about the wire makes me wanna watch it all over again.

BTW this thread has major spoilers for those guys who haven't finished watching the series. Might wanna put these in white.
