This scene and the preceding use of the phrase “soft eyes,” in a scene which puts Prez in his first teachers’ meeting, acquanting himself with a veteran, a young white idealist, and an up-and-comer with roots on the street, are probably my favorite in all of The Wire. I’d upload that scene, but my video converter won’t recognize the MKV format I’m watching The Wire in this go around. Someday, I’ll have to blow the money on a DVD boxset. It’s worth it to own this.
Season 4 is, simply put, the greatest season of the greatest series to ever grace the cable lines.
Dana, it’s the summer. Are you watching it yet?
