In sad news yesterday, Wire creator, David Simon, killed off crowd pleaser Mr. Omar Little. The toughest dude with a “short coming” or two got “got.” Tough one to swallow. I can’t add much to what has already been written, so I will point you in the direction of Shoals over at Heaven and Here.
Only two more episodes left until the show concludes. I suspect more moments like the final ones in Omar’s life. I’ll admit, when Detective Sydnor stopped his car to look at the map I held my breathe. David Simon had created an atmosphere where anyone can get “took” at any moment. And, yes, I kind of like it that way.
