Habbibu Fri 24-Oct-08 21:27:07 dying to know what happens, but v. sad that there will never ever ever be any more. <gags mouth - dying to talk about what might happen, but trying to avoid spoilers>

Enjoy! I thought season 5 wasn't as good as the others but the finale was brilliant.

Habbibu Fri 24-Oct-08 21:29:33

<desperate to know if ... and ... end up stuffed and if ... gets off because of it>. It is a bit farcical, but love the media angle. Gus is just great.

I watched 2 episodes and really couldn't get into it.

Boco Fri 24-Oct-08 21:31:41

I'm watching series 4 slower than the others to savour it.

So, I think my favourite was 2, it was very different, but I loved the docks stuff and thought that Frank Sobotka was such a good character. His little face!

Habbibu Fri 24-Oct-08 21:32:37

You do have to stick with it, Margo - I actually <gasp> didn't like it to start with, because it makes you work - doesn't give much away, doesn't explain v. much, so it seems confusing, and they speak so fast! But I kind of treat it like Shakespeare - love the language, don't understand it all, and the stories are brilliant. It's really worth another go.

MegBusset Fri 24-Oct-08 21:33:04

Yes, I loved s2 as well.

Season 4 easily the best for me, though. The kids are amazing.

I think I would rank them 4 > 2 > 3 > 1 > 5

Boco Fri 24-Oct-08 21:35:20

Hab you left me on Olivia's thread talking about Daniel's buttocks like a right pervert.

minniemummy Fri 24-Oct-08 21:35:30

Was a sad/happy day in our house when we got to the last ep. Won't give anything away but a good ending I thought, I felt mostly satisfied by it! Enjoy!

MegBusset Fri 24-Oct-08 21:37:23


Daniels' buttocks <drool>

nooOOOoonki Fri 24-Oct-08 21:39:55

I will once again offer my condolences Habbibu..

nooOOOoonki Fri 24-Oct-08 21:40:59

and what is this Daniel's lust I dont get it ... th man cant walk properly he is so over muscled!

MARGOsBeenPlayingWithMyNooNoo Fri 24-Oct-08 21:42:02

I gave up and deleted the whole series from sky +

<sad shrug>

Habbibu Fri 24-Oct-08 21:45:35

prefer 5 to 2, I think. Loved 4. Mr Prezbo was a revelation.

Habbibu Fri 24-Oct-08 21:46:28

Oops - sorry, Boco!

MegBusset Fri 24-Oct-08 21:46:55

Daniels' body is just amaaaazing. Like a well-oiled and very sexy robot or something.

nooOOOoonki Fri 24-Oct-08 21:54:25

but that's way I can't fancy him - walks like a robot, and therefore, call Robotist but that is NOT sexy grin

Boco Fri 24-Oct-08 22:08:57

I don't fancy him, i'm just .... amazed by his shiny tight ass.

I fancy Cutty though. Especially when he's first in it, and struggling to go straight and being a lawnmower. He's beautiful.

joyfuleyes Fri 24-Oct-08 22:37:21

It's a fantastic episode.

EffiePerine Sat 25-Oct-08 19:30:30

DH has ordered series 3 -arriving next week grin

Do we get to see Daniels nekkid in that one? <polishes specs>

chopchopbusybusy Thu 30-Oct-08 14:51:04

I've seen this mentioned a few times. I've looked at the description on Amazon. I'm a bit tempted to go the whole hog and preorder series 1-5 for £90ish - or I could just try series 1 for £15ish, then it won't matter too much if I hate it. My question is though, for those that love it, which other series do you like? For example I didn't watch 24 - couldn't get into it, but loved Lost.

OMaLittle Thu 30-Oct-08 14:55:30



I think.

I'm so glad MN has come around! Just saw someone on another thread called JimmyMcNulty.

Daniels is obscenely muscled.

This is one of those topics where the amount I have to say is just too big to come out.

Five comes lower because of the SK angle, it worked in the end but we were definitely a bit hmm and Freamon had started to irritate us both slightly in his one-dimensionality by this point.

Having said that, I still absolutely loved Season 2, just not quite as much as the others.

There are some classic comedy moments in 5, off the top of my head, the Quantico profiling and Namond getting into the car.

OMaLittle Thu 30-Oct-08 14:57:46

And YES Boco I think Cutty is the sexiest character.

I think the best actor is Andre Royo (Bubbs). I well up just thinking about some of his scenes.

Oh, and I think Gus must be the David Simon character.

What is it? Never heard of it but have seen in recommended on here. Genre? Shall I add it to Love Film?
