An African woman and her son were moving shit out of the lobby with some difficulty when I told her that one of the doors has a peg on it to hold it open. "It's okay, this is the last one. I'm evacuating."

I liked Season 2.

I'd probably go:

3, 1, 2, 4, 5.

I wasn't really into the whole Marlo Stanfield thing.

For the whole story to be told, it needed a season like the second one. It was a pretty gutsy move, but it worked.

Seasons 3 & 4 were clearly the best. I don't know which one I preferred but then comes 1, then 5 which was the craziest of them all but they really stuck the end of the series. Season 2 with the boring port shit was last even on rewatching the series and you understand why they went to the port unlike the initial viewing when you're like, "I thought this show was about cops fighting drug dealers? What the fuck does the port and these idiots have to do with anything?"

The first, third and fourth season being AMAZEBALLS, the second being great and the fifth being a shitshow save for the newspaper stuff.

That's arguable.

I feel the first half of the season is incredibly overlong and lumbering. Then again, the second half is powerful televisional tragedy. So one could argue for the second half to work one needs the first half as it is but I think it could have been handled better (easy to say, I know, but it's a matter of FEELS over anything really rational, so that's worth whatever Nortel's worth these days).

I think the "fun gang stuff" that Craig likes is pointless drivel that's repeated by every half rate show and people venerate it in The Wire because it gives them an excuse to like a smart show. The great thing about the 2nd season was how it contrasted with the others that focused mainly on black criminals. These white ones were doing just as heinous things and many more or less got away with it because of entrenched institutions and stronger networks. The Wire is nothing without the 2nd season. Its point isn't made without it.

LOS ANGELES — The San Fernando Valley has served as home to award-winning movies like “E.T.,” “Boogie Nights” and “Crash.” But Raul Bocanegra, a state lawmaker representing a large swath of the valley, worries about the collapse of film and television production in his district and across Hollywood’s home state.

There was a time when we actually made things,” said Mr. Bocanegra, referring to the automobile and aerospace manufacturing plants that have left California.

“Now, we make films here,” he said. “If we’re not careful, we will lose it.”

Mr. Bocanegra is leading an aggressive push, along with entertainment companies and Hollywood unions, to hand out as much as $2 billion in new tax breaks to increase movie and television production in California, which has lost business to states like New York with far more generous subsidies. Last year, for the first time, more studio movies were filmed in Louisiana than in California, according to the nonprofit FilmL.A.
