re: Deadwood. It is hard to pick up everything (I found more so due to voice volume) but pretty easy to get the gist once you understand the speech methods employed.

I thought Deadwood was easy. The wire was pretty straightforward too after the first few episodes.

None of it is any harder than watching certain episodes of the Bill.

I have been listening to the Wire soundtrack lately ... such cool music, and such cool soundbites from the TV series.

Was it when Chris referred to her as "Girl"? I caught on at that part too. I did have my suspicions before hand though. Snoop is bad ass.

I'm a good friend aren't I Kasper such an awesome series. I'll probably re watch it later this year.

What the fuck?

The chick who plays her was fucked up...she's essentially playing herself, same name and all.

Killed a girl aged 14 and spent next 8 years in prison...after getting out, she met the dude who plays Omar in a club and he brought her to work and she got a job on the show.
