bleak expectations

I've just watched the season 4 Wire finale. I think I will be an emotional wreck for the rest of the day. Jesus, that was amazing television.

I know. It's difficult to know what was the most upsetting/ best bit. But dear Bodie. I didn't even like him that much to begin with, especially with the whole Wallace thing (my one criticism of the whole series), but like how McNulty is oddly linked to the guy, so was I.

I think spent at least half that episode gasping and tensing my body hoping bad things weren't going to happen. Even though I knew they would.

I know, me too. There was a sense of impending doom hanging over the entire thing. When I saw Bubbles's hanging body I actually cried out in horror, although at least he didn't actually die. That would have been too much for me. Although the rest was upsetting enough - even today, when I think of Dukie turning up to give Prez the Christmas present I feel all tearful. And poor little Randy! All those kids were such awesome characters - I'm glad that at least Namond got a decent ending (and I loved that final shot of the hilarious Donut grooving down the road in his latest stolen car).

And man, Bodie! He was one of my favourite characters, despite the awfulness of Wallace's murder. I loved how exasperated he always seemed by the little details of drug dealing, and his relationship with the cops was really funny and strangely sweet - there was a genuine sort of respect and even affection between them. The scene in which he and Poot and their dates meet Herc and Carver and their dates in the cinema was hilarious, especially when Bodie goes "okay, see you tomorrow" in a perfectly reasonable way, as if they were going to meet in the office. And I found it strangely touching, in a fucked up way, that he went down fighting, defending his corner.

Oh, The Wire.

So incredible.

wire hotties
Omar is so interesting to look at. I'd have to say I have a heterocrush on him.

Aside from Kima, Rhonda and Beadie and Chardene are hotties as well. For some reason, the Mayor's wife is my favorite.

What I like about them is they aren't polished. They're hot because they seem so real and that makes them more attractive. See Season 5 and revel and mourn at the same time. (Because there is no more.)

I know, I was talking to my sister the other day and told her I just the season 5 of the Wire on DVD and she said 'huh, never heard of it.' Am so boggled.
