Quotes

Sgt. Jay Landsman: He gave us thirteen years on the line. Not enough for a pension, but enough for us to know that he was, despite his negligible irish ancestry, his defects of personality and his inconstant sobriety and hygiene, a true murder police. Jimmy, I say this seriously. If I was laying there dead on some Baltimore street corner, I'd want it to be you standing over me, catching the case. Because, brother, when you were good, you were the best we had.

Levy ain't that stupid!
7 June 2009 | by (Hamburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

This final season, although great, for me threatens to be let down by a small but important point, that in the end proves essential to the narrative: how could someone as wily and smart as Levy (the lawyer), who works for totally bent clients and who is himself completely bent, employ an ex-cop such as Herc, AND sit around scratching his head and wondering how it could be that the cops got Marlo's mobile number and managed to get a wiretap up on it to bring down the operation? It smacks of writers sitting around in a room going "hmmmm....how can we get lester up on that wire?..hmmmmm...I know! What if Herc.....". Such a silly trick is not in keeping with the usually very clever writing on this show.
