    definitely Omar, "The Bunk" and "Prop Joe" for me... however i hate how both omar an prop joe went out.. the whole show i kept thinking omar was going to do some serious throw down, an then he gets done in by a little kid, an doesnt even see it coming. allthought i suppose i have to credit the wrighters the way they did that was kind of realistic. in movies people go out with a bang, in real life you never know how, when or where your going to check out of this life....

    i'll do a top 10 but i love all the characters on this show.
    1. Jimmy McNulty (the most relatable and likeable character IMO)
    2. Omar Little (easily the coolest and most bad ass character in all of tv history)
    3. Bubbles (best story arc was his over 5 seasons)
    4. Stringer Bell (strongest "bad guy" yet sympathetic. plus Idris elba is cool as hell)
    5. Lester Freeman (another super strong and likeable character)
    6. Bunk Morland 7. Kima Greggs (strong female character and i feel be best portrayed female gay character in tv)
    8. Prop Joe (R.I.P)
    9. Snoop & Chris (only omar was more bad ass than these two)
    10. Carcetti (great character his arc reminded me of Vader in many ways.)

    also really get a kick out of herk and carver, the greek ("i'm not even greek" was possibly the funniest line to me in all of the show, the actors delivery and little smirk, perfect!), Vondas, the Sobotkas, Jay, Marlo and over course Avon. just to name a few.
