Perfect Start to Final Season
11 July 2012 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

Its another classic perfect The Wire episode. Last season they show us the schools, but this season we will watch about the paper media. Only one episode of season 5 and we are introduced a Baltimore Sun editor called Gus Haynes. This is his first appearance, but I already knew him like I've seen him for years. This is the strong point of The Wire. It has the best character depth ever in TV shows.

McNulty becomes the same again: drinking, and womanizing.

Bubbles is trying to adapt to ordinary life, after his fatal mistake in season 4.

More of Michael and Dukie is revealed. But I wanted to see more of Randy and Namond as well.

Because of budget cutbacks, Baltimore PD personnel can't receive any payment and very angry about it. Sergeant Carver, couldn't keep his man intact.

Mayor Carcetti doesn't accept a generous offer from FBI, he protects his A.S.A's orders.

The budget cutbacks even effects Major Crimes. Whole personnel is distributed within the BPD.

12 episodes left, but there is a very perfectly complicated story arc. I'm thinking myself, how the hell will they tie all these stories in 12 episodes?
