Nomar Omar

Hero

The other morning I asked Bert if he wanted porridge and he said,

"A'ight"


I said,

"What you talking Bawlmer for?"


He said,

"I'm just slurring because I haven't woken up properly."


"The Wire" has tended to take over our life a little bit but tonight, that's it - it's all over. Nellybert has just watched the final episode of The Wire and it was, as it always was, totally excellent.

I have never, ever watched any film or television series that so brilliantly depicted as many memorable and fully-nuanced characters as were in "The Wire". Without doubt, Omar Little was one of the best. I'll miss him.

And in the end Reginald got to come up the basement steps. What an achievement that was.

Snoop has to be one of the scariest female characters ever. If I ever came across her I'd be terrified.

Sorry Jim Bob. But there's such a lot of stuff on the web about The Wire I had to train myself not to read about it when I was working through the series.

A few got through but there were still plenty of surprises left.
