The WirePosted: June 22, 2008
My favorite scene from Season 3 from The Wire. Don’t worry, no spoilers.
After I watched this scene, I had a huge smile on my face. For those that don’t watch The Wire, the scene is a show down between Omar and Borther Mouzone, both criminals. So brilliant to structure the scene like a classic western showdown in the heart of Baltimore.
Another favorite from Season 3 is this scene with McNulty and Lester (Baltimore cops). I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen the equivalent of McNulty’s rant at past companies I’ve worked for (the whole us-versus-them organizational cynicism). Lester’s advise is spot on. *Note, if you watch the clip, there is some strong language.
That’s what’s great about The Wire–the script and acting. It’s easily the best television drama I’ve ever watched. If you haven’t watched it yet, do yourself a favor and rent/buy it. On to Season 4!
