Yeah the grocer scene was really the only one that broke the illusion (the obvious CGI glass didn't help).

I noticed right at the beginning when they were looking at the timing chain. I still liked the movie but only Pacino moved convincingly, mostly because he was muh more stationary and could hold on to podiums. But when the bed scenes were everyone has these big old man potbellies it was also sad.

Same, except for when bunk eats crab gut. That drives the urges right out.


This is also revolting to me. Eating that stuff is like eating the garbage of the garbage.

Avon gives Cutty the money for his gym - I think it counts. It's not for influence or a show of power or anything either, he doesn't want it to be known.

I mean, in s4 they have the young Avon boxing photo up on the wall. It may not be known he was the investor, but he is a part of the gym.

Poot just had enough and moved on. The way poot talks to dukie if I remember right is that dukie wasn't old enough to get a job yet. Maybe poot was waiting until he was old enough, and when the corners got too hot he shrugged it off and said it was time to move on.

I think Poot is only 22-23 by the end of the series, if that.

Nope, just lived to his means and put his savings in mutual funds for decades. He's not my client so I don't have a lot of info besides that. I do have a Bitcoin millionaire though! He's a really cool guy.

From the NYT bio:

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/09/06/arts/michael-k-williams-dead.html

quote:

Mr. Williams played Omar Little, a charming vigilante who held up low-level drug dealers, perhaps the most memorable character on a series many consider among the best shows in television history.

Off camera, however, his life was often in disarray. He wasted his earnings from “The Wire” on drugs, a spiral that led him to living out of a suitcase on the floor of a house in Newark, an experience he described with candor in an article that appeared on nj.com in 2012.

He finished filming the series with support from his church in Newark, but the drug addiction stayed. In 2008, he had a moment of clarity at a Barack Obama presidential rally in Pennsylvania. With Mr. Williams in the crowd with his mother, Mr. Obama remarked that “The Wire” was the best show on television and that Omar Little was his favorite character.

They met afterward, but Mr. Williams, who was high, could barely speak. “Hearing my name come out of his mouth woke me up,” Mr. Williams told The New York Times in 2017. “I realized that my work could actually make a difference.”

God, this is incredibly sad. It is always hard to get past these demons. RIP

Having not seen the Plot Against America series but read the book (10+ years ago) it doesn't seem like the series deviated far from the source's ending, and if anything, was bleaker.
