My friend MB recently forwarded me this collection of the 100 greatest quotes from the Wire. I write a blog about LOST, but the Wire will always be my favorite show. I've never seen anything quite like it and doubt I ever will again. Watching these clips in quick succession took me back to when I was mainlining the the entire series on DVD, watching two, sometimes three, episodes at a time:
My only complaint is that the selections include almost no quotes from the kids. We see Randy and Michael, but no Namond or Dukie. I found these kids to be some of the most compelling characters on the Wire. They're what makes Season 4 arguably the best of the show. I would have loved to see at least one more glimpse of them clowning around on the corner or with Mr. Pryzbo in the classroom.
