The Wire - Heading To the Finish Line

Well, nobody else would do it so I thought I'd start another "Wire" diary.  I couldn't participate in the last one cuz I couldn't get HBO where I was and didn't wanna spoil the surprises.  Any way here's my feeble attempt to get another diary started.

First off does anyone else find it disconcerting that many of the actors in "The Wire" - as well as other HBO dramas like, "Oz" and "Deadwood" - seem to cycle between HBO and the Dick Wolfe stuff?   You kinda identify with what's his name - the black police colonel in "The Wire" and then you realize he was the undercover cop in "Oz" faking the Jamaican accent.  Just a thought.  And is anybody else tired of Richard Belzar?

More to the point, the plot line is beginning to spin outta control.  It's a race between three forces trying to bring justice to Chris and Snoop.  One, McNulty has a loopy scheme to catch the vacant house killers that is having unforeseeable consequences - the only way to do real police work is to flim-flam the system.  Omar is working feverishly to bring street justice to Marlo and his crew.  And Bunk is using old fashion police work to find the killers.  Since this is structured fiction the author can choose whichever method he wants to catch the killers to illustrate his point - if he has a point.  In real life my money would be on Omar - cuz I think he'd be only one to bring any passion to his work.
