HonkWatch #043: The Wire (S3E3)

The Wire (S3E3)I think I’m suffering withdrawal symptoms after getting through all five series of The Wire, especially after working the entirety of Homicide with its own attendant downward spiral.

This’un’s from the third series, which focuses on Bunny Colvin and his Western District drug strategy (expanding on ideas briefly entertained in Homicide: The Movie); here we are at yet another cop wake, again The Pogues play in the background, again with the euology and the Jameson’s. Bunk and McNulty are outside, fried. A shaved bollock-headed poh-leece staggers out with refills.

“Wake up and die right, you cunts.”

Now, you don’t get dialogue like that in The Bill.
