It still is one of my all time favorite scenes. I watched the entire series back to back last year. It was worth it. I was consumed by it with the ability to watch from start to finish in the span of about 4 months.

That is a great scene.

I absolutely love the wire. I've seen the whole series probably 2 1/2 times. I can discuss the thing like it was the Great Gatsby or something. The writers were fantastic.

I love all the echoes in the show. But not the standard technique where two people say the same things back to back in two different scenes. Sometimes, it takes a few shows.

There's also a great counterbalance of characters and what they say (Greek and Marlowe) that you have to wait TWO seasons for.

"Get on with it, motherfucker!"

Vin - are you going to watch Treme? It is a New Orleans' based post Katrina project from David Simon. It comes in April to HBO with Bunk & Lester starring along with Steve Zahn.

I probably will but i'm not much interested in the whole katrina thing. call me uncaring but i'm just a little tired of that tragedy. Plus I hate Sean Payton.

But I've watched all of David Simon's stuff so I will probably jump on it. There's not much quality programming on TV so you gotta get whatever you can.

Oh, there's a new movie coming out with Bunk that was called Stringbean and Marcus but now has been retitled to something like Dark was the Night. Anyway, they filmed in philly last year and they rented my jukebox for a scene. I hope the ole wurlitzer made the final cut.
