Goofs

When Bodie and Shamrock are driving back home to Baltimore from Philadelphia it appears that they are driving on a highway in or near a city there's a mile marker sign that says "Havre de Grace 3 mi Baltimore 40 mi". This would place them around Perryville MD which is a more rural setting on 95. See more »

Quotes

Sean' 'Shamrock' 'McGinty: We done gone so far from Baltimore, we're losing the station. Yo, try a Philly station or some shit like that.
Preston 'Bodie' Broadus: The radio in Philly is different?
Sean' 'Shamrock' 'McGinty: Nigga, please. You gotta be fucking with me right? You ain't never heard a station outside of Baltimore?
Preston 'Bodie' Broadus: Yo man, I ain't never left Baltimore except that Boys Village shit one day, and I wasn't tryin' to hear no radio up in that bitch.

Intriguing start to a 2nd case...
17 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The first episode of the 2nd season of The Wire was intriguing, if still a little uneven, although that was to be expected because that is the same way the first season started.

There is definitely a difference in tone from this season and the first, and it is apparent. I think this adds originality to it but also tells us that while many of the old characters will be back it will be focused on a different scenario. The last scene of the episode definitely gave me chills and was pretty disturbing and is foreshadowing of the type of things that we will see this season. Cannot wait to see where it goes
