Was the 4:3 that much of a deal breaker? There's been a lot of whining about it the past few pages; how did any of you watch tv before like 2003? Is Citizen Kane permanently off your watch list?

Yeah man it's bad enough my TV is a black frame surrounded by the various colors and junk on my entertainment system. I don't need no more plain uniform black. That's the line.

I can see how someone with a widescreen, used to watching widescreen, would be annoyed by the old format. Even Simon acknowledges it. And on top of that you're both posting like idiots. Just shut up and deal with it.

I think it's just Simon loving with the fans because he wants people to think still more deeply about his work. That is, the trains are about institutions but there are other metaphors that are still uncovered and him just saying "yup, that's it" would kill the discussion.

Mouzone's 'slow train coming' scene still makes me wonder. What (metaphorical) train? Slow? Where is it coming to? In context he's probably just mocking the city's attempts at reform but the dialog is sort of a mindfuck.

Speaking of Mouzone, I need the background music from the final scene of season two episode nine, when Bunny leaves the towers and Mouzone makes his first appearance. I made a good effort to track it down during my original run years ago but came up empty. I'm not the only one.

it should be listed in the credits

It's not, I don't think music is ever listed in the credits. I've pulled everything from IMDB but that particular track isn't listed anywhere.

You're off by a few episodes, and characters, and places.

Of course I realize nobody will read anything I just said because an inch above it is Omar Pony.

If it makes you feel any better, I scrolled down the reply page and noticed your post.

The only thing funnier than Davis' 'sheeeeeit' is when Carcetti's aide, Norman Wilson does an impression of it.

Jimmy crashing his car is the funniest scene.

A shitbox teal Cavalier, intentionally rammed into a pillar of cement twice, and it's still drivable and continues to show up scene after scene. I don't understand why that car had to live to see another day but Nick Sobotka's badass post-apocalyptic LeSabre doesn't start one morning and promptly gets replaced with a bro truck. Season 2's most heartbreaking tragedy right there.

I skipped through a lot of Carcetti stuff about midway through when he showed up. I kept waiting for something interesting but nope its all boring.

Don't skip scenes. Carcetti eventually becomes interesting, and his story is critical to the overall narrative. He's one of the hardest characters to break down and fully understand - but he's a politician, that's how they do.

Alright, I'm gonna ask: Is Snoop (the character and not the person) meant to be a sociopath?

I thought Snoop was a sociopath when she first appeared but in the final episode, she took her impending death with such calm and dignity, that it shattered my perception of her. It felt tragic in some way, like she was just a pawn all along.

In case you missed it, David Simon didn't waste much time taking a proverbial chainsaw to Martin O'Malley for the mess in Baltimore. As in, Martin O'Malley, the Baltimore politician Carcetti was more or less based on. They've exchanged shots in the past but it's one hell of an interview.
