BX is actually the reason why i watched The Wire

back when it first aired, i was young and i really wasnt interested in it.

but you guys spoke about it sooooooo often and so highly of it, that i decided to go back and check it out.

I was 10 years late, but i really enjoyed it. Its a great show

he robbed characters i liked and i can respect drug dealers especially ones who were so organized and powerful. omar was just a robber which doesn’t impress me nearly as much. the main reason i didn’t like him though is because he always talked about how everything was “all in the game” when he robbed and murdered but turned into a snitch when his bf got k*lled and uses the bullsh*t excuse of it being because they went “past the game” simply because they tortured him. when since gruesome deaths not been apart of the drug trade? what does it even matter? it’s the same end result. you don’t get to start a conflict and then say that the other person’s response wasn’t fair especially in their world. one thing that’s agreed upon is not running to the police to solve your problems when you’re a criminal. that’s some bi*ch a*s sh*t and is nowhere in the game. he could’ve easily handled his beef with them in the streets which makes me wonder if he was scared of bird now that i think about it. what other reason did he have to testify against him instead of k*lling him since he knew his whereabouts, what kind of gun he carried, etc?

now I respect ur rationale. But I disagree on a few points. The kingpins like Avon Stringer and Marlo do get their points for being legends and running empires. But their empires are built on the suffering of innocents. Hamsterdam and Bubbles are on the show to demonstrate the human cost of the game

I respect a n*gga like Omar for saying fu*k all that an only robbing kingpins. Morality and scruples and all that. He probably wouldnít have flipped out on the Barksdales if they had just k*lled his boy honestly. U saw how he wasnít trippin on them emptying like 30 shots on his other homie in season1 cuz bra was in the streets just like them

what innocents were suffering? drug addicts aren’t innocents. drug users are literally the sole reason why drug cartels thrive. fu*k morality and scruples. idk in what world anyone would think those would be logical to have in a violent criminal underworld. it ain’t like that n*gga had no other choice but to be a robber. he was still a murderer. what place does he have to talk about being moral? also, he wasn’t tripping about them k*lling his other partner because he wasn’t his bf. that’s not at all comparable. their relationship was just business

Was 'The Corner' not intended as a prequel to 'The Wire'? As stated above, some of the best television ever made...

Have you seen The Corner?




Its a lot like what u described. Written by same writers, David Simon and Ed Burns too. sh*t If anything, The Corner is ACTUALLY the prequel to The Wire since it came before and is based in Baltimore street life. It was a short mini series and it's less characters but each episode is more intimate cause there's one center character they focus on each episode. Check it out if you haven't seen it. It's REALLY GOOD! the characters depth and development is crazy for such a short series. I was mad it was over so quick

Got some of the same actors from the write playing COMPLETELY different roles

Norman and Freamom play junkies lol

Whole show is on youtube. How I watched it the first time

hell yea lol. The corner is really good, they got the whole thing up on YouTube. It blew my mind when I found out the real life Fran was the lady who played secretary in the health clinic.

I almost feel like you should watch the corner more to be educated, itís more realistic than the wire
