For me, it's Avon Barksdale.
They saw your ghetto ass comin' a mile away!
That's one of my favourite scenes
>THE Clay Davis? DOWNTOWN Clay Davis?
>You need a "Day of the Jackal"-type muthafucka, basically, to do some shit like that, not a rumble-tumble nigga like Slim!
>You bleed green, I bleed red
>I look at you these days, String, you know what I see? I see a man without a country. Not hard enough for this right here and maybe, just maybe, not smart enough for them out there.
Avon was so incredibly based.
cat lookin ass
He look like one of 'em half soul half Chinese niggas.
The game is the game.
you can post some shit and be like wtf but just never on no sunday man
I BLEED RED YOU BLEED GREEN YOU FUCKING REPTILE ASS NIGGA FUCK OUTTA HERE
You can have anything you want 😉
For me, it's Frog.
For me, it's Frog.
The Wire predicted zoomers fr (yes I know there were wiggers back then but now it's the default).
Why do black gangsters always call each other "B"?
it's short for buddy
Dats what im talkin' about, b
You know damn well that's not what they're saying.
Avon and Stringer in particular use it as shorthand for their surnames, Barksdale and Bell, hence B&B Enterprises
But they literally do the same thing in this movie too. It has Avon's actor in it.
It’s just black slang there’s no big secret behind it
It means bussy. Niggas are extremely gay with all that extra estrogen they have.
It's short for boss
Most of my colleagues give each other the overhand slap, grip and pull. I never do it. I put my hand out, palm on the up and on the bottom.
I'm not hip like that. You want to shake my hand, you shake my hand. None of this 'cool' shit. And they do it too, lel. They accept me being a square. You shake a hand, you shake a hand. There's one guy who always just gives me a limp hand. I don't know if he has a problem with me or what.
There's always a mutual squeeze. He just offers me his hand. I squeeze it, but it's like a dead hand. Is he disrespecting me, or is he just not feeling good?
You remind me of this little dweeb we used to work with. We invited him to a fake white tie party and sent him a picture of all of us at a pub. He quit not long after that lol
you would legit be fucked if you did that now
Avon Barksdale and Stringer Bell are excellent pet names for a Dog and Cat.
where's Wallace tho?
>Janny a man in his time
>he a man today
Why was this scene so kino?
>he was the man back in the day
>he a man today
>Marlo inevitably slips back to the streets
>Avon gets out in 15
Do they partner up? Has the game passed Avon by?
I always imagined Avon becoming a Butchie type guy after getting out, except he would be smart enough to work with regular gangsters instead of being the bank for someone with as many enemies as Omar had. Marlo will die over some bullshit long before Avon is out.
Is it racist to say I had a hard time telling these people apart in the beginning? They all looked the same to me. You need practice with the facial recognition software. This entire show was black. And they talked like they just got out of a car accident.
Watching with subtitles helps alot to differentiate.
nigga named after women's makeup
>You gotta watch The Wire! The criminals are the best part
>Finish season 1…well that sucked
>Get introduced to Ziggy
Now I get what everyone was talking about, glad I stuck with it.
Season 1 is relatively weak in all honesty. I've seen the Wire like 4 or 5 times now and I'd rate the seasons:
4 > 3 > 2 > 1 > 5
All are great, even 5 with its somewhat more hokey plotlines, but I remember thinking S1 was better than it actually was until a few re-watches.
2 > 4 > 3> 1 > 5
It's funny how on rewatch a lot of the good stuff that you were associating with season 3 was actually in season 2.
That could be the case. It's been like 3 years since my last re-watch. Even though I've seen it multiple times, S2 is still "the docks" season to me, even though a ton of stuff happens on the hood side of things as well that I tend to forget.
My brain usually just sorts the seasons as:
S5: Newspapers/Serial Killer
Regardless of my ranking, I hold S2 and S3 at about an equal level and can be essentially interchangeable. I still think S4 is ahead of them though, while S1 and S5 are below.
i just realized he was in generation kill... fuck i might be dumb.
Didn't you pick up on it the second you saw him? He plays the same character except instead of a typical jar head he's a petty crook
Ray Ray was never the same after the war. Should have been more like Nicky.
Was it actually Tarantino who wrote the dialogue of this series instead of Simon? I totally bet it's him.
>Enter Wire thread
>see viewers ranking 4 too high because of them kids
Rinse and repeat around here.
Makes me sick motherfucker, how far we done fell
For me, it’s White Mike
who writes this shit?
Whiter than you, Ziggy
For me it’s Carcetti.
>dry, slow-paced drama about institutions and society written by some gritty crime novelists and a journalist
>be genuinely funnier than most all-out 'comedies'
how did David Simon do it?
Avon always surprised me with how tall he is, he spends most of the time sitting down but then he stands up and you realise he's the same height as Idris Elba.
