New York magazine did a frame-by-frame analysis of the series finale's concluding montage. Pretty basic stuff, but I find the comments to be the most interesting:

‘The Wire’ Finale's Montage: A Shot-by-Shot Commentary

Also, just as a sidenote, guess what the Arts editor at Baltimore magazine decided to name his blog for our revamped Web site? What else, but All The Pieces Matter.

It should be flattering, Tripp, that you and Baltimore's Arts editor think on the same wavelength.

And again...

Picked up a City Paper yesterday and, what do ya know, the cover story was an exit interview with David Simon. Let's draw this out even longer by reading it:

My turn to be Omar!

I came across this the other day. Some people have mentioned that there have been scenes in which Kenard has looked at Omar without fear, and that for them foreshadowed Kenard's murdering Omar. After reading the interview that Jessie posted below, I saw this video and thought it interesting. Dominic West commented that we will see in the last episode who will be the next Omar, McNulty, etc. I couldn't think of anyone who could be the next Omar, until I saw this. Interesting to see Kenard "playing" Omar.

Article in Time Magazine

I was surprised that this article was in Time, because it frankly discusses the realities that "The Wire" confronts so unapologetically. Great article, and it's cool that it wasn't an interview, but rather the article was written by the creators of "The Wire."

Check it out here.
