The Wire on HBO

This is a lazy post but a favorite of mine.

The Wire is one of my favorite shows. A few weeks ago I blogged about Baltimore, both the good and the bad. I mentioned a television show(The Wire) as a good reference for people who are curious or unfamiliar with Baltimore. Well I pulled a few clips for you to look at(please enjoy).

Clip one features two of Marlo's(a major drug dealer)assassins. They go by the names Snoop(this is a woman) and Benga. Oh yea, Benga is from Nigeria. If anyone has the dirt on him, please tell me sha, thanks.


Clip two features Baltimore's most infamous stick up boy(in dealers that they take to their heals upon mention of his name.




Clip three featthe hard children of Baltimore. Now you know that little boy(youngest boy) had know business outside that late at night. More than likely, his mother is a drug addict who is to busy feeding her habit, instead being a parent to her son.

Love, love, love "The Wire". Can't believe that next season is the last one. Also, Marlo's right hand man is named Chris. His actual (real life) name is Gbenga Akinnagbe.

@ overwhemled- You are forgiven since you live in Canada.

I dont have cable, so Ive only seen one episode of this show. Based on that one viewing, I can say that it truly captures Bmore life! Unfortunately, its a sad, sad reality.

Happy New Year!

I tried to get into it from the beginning when they put it on BET but I just couldn't. Either I was distracted, or other things. I think I am going to rent the first season and watch it, I wanna be down too! lol...Besides, I hate when cable shows and movies get put on Network TV, they edit the crap outta them.
