    One of the best ever. I enjoyed all the episodes and characters. I was truly saddened when it died.

    It didn't "die", it was a closed history from the begining

    The 5th sesaon was the weakest for me...it turned realism into farce...I get why they did that, after all The Wire is a greek tragi-comedy, it makes sense it ends like a satyr...but still

    Ahhh whatever guess WE just SEE things differently and did so die!!

    Every one has their favourites but I always enjoyed the complex friendship of Stringer and Avon. The way Stringer went shocked me a bit first time I seen it yet made perfect sense. Hate how they wrapped things up with Avon though.. Wood and Elba are brilliant throughout though. Could talk about the entire cast for many a post.

    Although somehow some way I agree with you on season 5 and I too understand why they did that but definitely must have been a lot of fun for all involved most especially West...you could tell he was 110% in that character final season. West whom is currently on "The Affair" that dude has incredible range as an actor. Blown away by him from The Wire to that show.

    3rd and 4th seasons were the best imo

    I always imagined that the legal drug zone episodes gave viewers like @Call me Tim a hernia

    The Hamsterdam episodes were the best. I always thought if a cop actually tried to do something like that irl the butt hurt from it would be funny af.
