I'm now finally finished with Season 2 of The Wire. After my initial post last week claiming it was a comedown from season 1, I can agree now that it's not much of one. The season wrapped up so nicely, especially with that montage in the last scene, with Nick Sobovtka looking out over the water and then walking uphill away.
Frank Sobovtka was such a good character, sort of a tough Willie Loman, and the actor playing him was magnificent. Even Ziggy attained some redemption in my eyes.
The problem with watching The Wire so late is no one to talk to about it. I actually prefer to watch it on DVD, all at once, rather than week by week, but miss the water cooler nature of watching a good TV show as it airs. I walked into school last week still clamoring with the news in my head that D'Angelo - probably my favorite character from season 1 - had been killed, and everyone was pretty non-plussed. After all, it happened years ago. But, damn. I even knew it was coming, from accidentally reading a Wikipedia entry, but was still blown away.
Now it's on to Season 3, which I think is somewhere in the house. I haven't seen it since I moved.
