| The first season I was so impressed at how complicated the dealers were and how much great police work the cops did. |
Perhaps the thing I loved the most about the show was that every character in that show had very well defined strengths and weaknesses. It did not make any character out to be too smart, or too dumb. Or too cliched' "Oh he is a tough cop", "Or he is the dumb dealer"..
McNaulty - excellent gut instinctive cop, good details guy... horrible people skills and anager
Daniels - supportive boss, allowed for creatitive thinking and fought for his troops, yet was too political at first and sometimes lost control of his troops
Bubs-- great heart, good man, but couldnt beat the habit despite his wanting too
D'Angelo - Great heart, caught up in something out of his control, yet also very confortable with his lifestyle and pushing drugs
Avon - brilliant mastermind, yet sometimes a rash thinker.
Stringer - The Tom Hagen of the Wire. Strong work ethic and attention to detail, committed and loyal. I dont know his weakness to be honost.
Freamon - Perhaps what McNaulty will be in the future. Smart, brilliant gut instincts, yet he landed in the pawn shop division for his hot head.
Prezbuluski - Hot headed, yet probably responsible for the case getting going with him identifying the code and paperwork schemes.
I could literally go on and on... and that is why this show ricked me, and was one of the finest shows I ever had the privilege of watching
