Farewell to The Wire: Five Seasons of Montages

I still haven't stopped thinking about Sunday's finale of The Wire. It wasn't a fade-to-black talker of an ending, Tony Soprano-style, but I did think it was a fitting conclusion to five years of examining the rise and fall of the police, union workers, drug lords, government officials, school teachers, and newspaper reporters of Baltimore.

Specifically, I've been playing the show's final montage over and over — both in my head and in real life. The Wire is known for ending every season with a montage showing what comes next for various characters and stories, and I'm so glad that tradition continued for the final episode.

awesome I didn't notice at first but the scenes in the last montage of the city and the people in the street were taken from previous seasons. This was such a good show too bad more networks don't make shows that are honest
