    For sure the best show ever on TV – the characters are amazing. Sad to see it go really. Best writing – no doubt. What about best show period? Can’t believe the show got left out again, but who needs the awards anyway.

    Over time, as people start to get into the show, they will see the deepest characters ever.

    One question – At the end, when Omar was in the body bag, was the guy at the morgue just playing jokes with himself when he switched the names?

    Also, how insane was it that Dookie got picked up by a man collecting JUNK on a HORSE, right? I mean, the thing was written like a Novel.

    Yeah, it should definitely be up for best show. Fortunately, not winning awards all those season (or even being nominated) didn’t make the show any less brilliant.

    The guy at the morgue corrected the names. Someone else had put the wrong tag on him. I would have to go back and look at it again to see if there was any significance to specifically what was on the tag. Overall, I think the scene goes back to the lecture Beadie gave McNulty about who’s around when you’re dead and what’s really important in life. It also touches on the “Do you know who I am?” line delivered by Marlo and the dude who Lil Omar (aka Mike) shot in the knee.

    I heart “The Wire” writers. They always threw something in there that rewarded paying close attention. Geniuses. I missed the premiere of David Simon’s new show about Iraq. I have to catch it when it comes on again.
