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.
