this show was written so goddamn well
I know for certain this was on PoeTV before, but since I can't find it and it may have disappeared, I can't possibly downvote and would suggest others don't either.
Looking back, like much of Season One's dialogue, it's heavy handed. But The Wire as a whole is one of that shows that justifies the medium of television. And this is one of its most memorable scenes.
Five for the best television show ever.
this is a ripoff of that guy from breaking bad. who cares about these niggers.
wait you're not seriously that stupid are you
You know there is an invention called television and on this invention they show shows, right? Well these people are the actors in one of these shows. They are "playing" "characters. " You follow so far?

No one talks like that, anywhere. Someone explain why this show is good, because that dialogue just stank of trying too hard.
It has to do with subtext and what the subtext explains about the people and environment the actors and scene are depicting.
It's at worst a little heavy handed, but thats not that surprising considering this is the first season and the show was just getting into stride. But yes, person on the internet, tell me how people in the ghettos of Baltimore REALLY TALK.
When I saw this on TV I had pretty much the same thought. If I had more time I'd watch the series, I'm not going to knock it based on this one scene.
But quoting yourself is never a good sign, so they're lucky they picked a good theme song to make me forget about it.
Articulate black people? My suspension of disbelief is shattered!
There's a slightly unsettling "gentle savage" vibe to it, isn't there? Like if "Uptown Girl" was set in the antebellum.
