58 was a great episode :popcorn: I can't help but think, though, that many things that happened in Episode 58 could have, or maybe should have, happened earlier in the season.However, that being said, they have a lot to deliver on in the last 2 episodes. If they don't, this could be a bigger end-of-series thud than The Sopranos.BTW, Beadie is looking older, isn't she? She looked good in Season 2, but has gone downhill steadily since.

beadie (amy ryan) is up for a best supporting actress award in for that new movie ben affleck directed, gone baby goneanxious to see that

HBO probably threw a token hour and 15 minutes to the show for the finale. There is some serious stuff coming down in the last two episodes. I'm really sad to see it end.Even though I hate this show now. :no:

Why? Episode 58? or 57?I still haven't gotten 58, going to try rebooting my cable box to see if it comes up on demand :)
just watch them
I wish everybody could/would watch 58, so we could talk about it. There's been some pretty good discussion going on in this thread lately.

It STILL hasn't hit HBO On Demand yet. Going to try now, maybe after midnight or something.Update: Nope, not yet. Going to unplug and reboot my cable box to see if that helps.Nope, still nothing. And I noticed there's nothing in the "Just In" category at all anymore. I may have to call and ##### out TWC tomorrow. Edited by corpcow

I had a war with Comcast Houston and HBO back when everyone was saying they were showing season 4 in its entirety On Demand. Comcast didn't even have the Wire as an option On Demand, while HBO kept saying that of course it was available, they were advertising it. I never got anywhere with Comcast. My last conversation went like this: (Comcast Rep) Dude, I'm like a teenager working at a call center in Michigan, and I can't help you with anything. And no, you can't talk to a supervisor. Sorry. Then, when Season 5 came on, they put it into the On Demand service and it works fine. :hot:

It's generally been fine for me up to this week, though it's been available at varying points, never after mid-morning on Mon.

You're expecting everything to wrap up neatly? Some stuff is going to get resolved I'm sure, but some isn't.

When was Homicide the movie?After the show was off the air right?See HBO was rumorred to be making the final Soprano's episode into a movie, at a theater type deal.Everything I've seen is that they're done, writing wise and everything. Don't feel there's more to add, did what they set out to etc. I'm wonderring what's up though.Just watched some show Jericho a week or so ago. Found it fascinating how bad it did, I mean awful, in ratings. Fans were furious it was cancelled, and the network brought it back; so I had to watch it once. Seems like that movie with Pony Boy and Patrick Swayze(can't think of the name, not the outsiders)...anyhow I wish we could ask for more here like that. The ratings have been (relatively) poor and with Sopranos gone I don't see a whole lot of wonderful shows on HBO's plate.

the momentum generated by the fake serial killer is starting to overwhelm mcnutty...

how did they think this was going to end... it was just going to fade away quietly after they got their desired increase in support? they stirred up a hornets nest with the media, police & government...

have they discussed an exit strategy, like a patsy (possibly a dead one)... maybe he can fake a phone call to the press that the serial killer is moving on?

maybe the plan was to let "killings" stop, & the ruckus will gradually die down...

I believe this was there intent.

Episode 58 was up on my Comcast On Demand last night. Very good episode.

I've been noticing Jay Landesman in the credits. (not the character, the person)I remember one real detective had a bit part on the show. I don't think it was him though. Who is his character?I hadn't noticed it before so I'm guessing it's not Jay Landesman the character.That older cop in the bar that the reporter was running a hypothetical by?

thats my guess
That is correct. That is the real Jay Landesman, and his horrible Baltimore accent is 100% real.

I didn't say that. I just said they have a lot to deliver on. If they never had another episode of this show ever air, it would still be better than 95% of the series I've ever seen.

I think most people actually want McNulty to get caught.

This is clearly what McNutty wants to do... But I have a feeling he's going to feel the repercussions of his actions somehow. Maybe not prison time or getting fired, but something will/should happen to him.

I think HBO rejecting the 16 episode season hurt them a little bit. According to David Simon, the series was written as a 66 episode story. I've actually enjoyed the news room storyline this season (even though at times it does feel a bit rushed). Gus is a great character, I wish we would have had a full season to get to know him a little better. Edited by Big_Russel

I loved the homage scene to the old "Homicide" series- the original great Baltimore cop drama. Cracked up with Richard Belzer at the bar- making the comment about "how he used to ahve a bar."

In the old Homicide series he and another cop (the guy who is now playng the newpaperman in THe Wire) owned a bar together.

Pretty neat how they tied it in and gave it a tip of the cap.

If any of you have not seen the Homicide series you should.

Ok, I finally got Episode 58 on demand. Awesome.

Texas, Captain: what didn't you like?? (Please use spoiler tags out of respect for the others who aren't watching on demand :thumbup:)

mytagid = Math.floor( Math.random() * 100 );document.write("

I think the painkillers probably had a lot to do with him getting caught off-guard. But for the ambush in the apartment, Omar doesn't get killed IMO. It did make a lot of sense in terms of the show, and definitely passed the "smell test" for me. I did wonder today, why didn't Omar just leave Baltimore and move far, far away to rehabilitate his leg, then come back? He certainly had the financial means. How hard would it have been to catch a bus or get someone to give him a lift?

I loved the contrast of two little facts that don't seem to be connected: Dope boys coming in to take some of Omar's personal effects off him as souvenirs, showing how revered and infamous he was on the streets, and the story of his death getting cut without much thought from running in the Sun.*** SPOILER ALERT!

Where did he get the gun? Have you been watching the show?

Dropping the gun is standard operating procedure. I doubt they have his fingerprints on file. It's a lot smarter than hanging on to it, actually. Not that he was thinking too clearly about it or imitating the famous restaurant scene in G1.

He popped him probably because he was a nemesis to all drug dealers, including his own crew, and to make a name for himself. It happens. My uncle, who was incarcerated for a year and change (a little of that time was at San Quentin) said that in prison, people will take a run at someone who's famous just on principle alone.

And Omar's always kept his place of residence a secret. He didn't get ####ed with on the street because of his reputation, and he made himself difficult to find otherwise

Sounds like many of you who are posting the spoilers about episode #58, don’t really seem to grasp how/why the scene unfolded the way it did. Maybe we can revisit it once everyone is caught up. It runs back all the way to season 3, but you have to be a "true blue" (obsessed) Wire fan to piece it all together.

I didn't think so either. But "Bri" asked me not to post the spoilers, because people could still see them if they accidentally quoted a post with the spoiler in it. So I just figured it best not to post them anymore to be on the safe side. Honestly, I don’t know how it woks. Edited by Big_Russel

I loved the homage scene to the old "Homicide" series- the original great Baltimore cop drama. Cracked up with Richard Belzer at the bar- making the comment about "how he used to ahve a bar."In the old Homicide series he and another cop (the guy who is now playng the newpaperman in THe Wire) owned a bar together.Pretty neat how they tied it in and gave it a tip of the cap.If any of you have not seen the Homicide series you should.

I loved this too. Melrick and Munch together again except Melrick is now Gus.
