  • Even the best series have filler eps. But with The Wire, they're always enjoyable, even though not much of earth-shattering import happened in this one. I still love this show- every minute of it.

    About the biggest development in this episode is that Daniels catches Carcetti's eye for his diligence on the job. And with Burrell on his way out, that could figure big for Cedric in the future. Speaking of promotions, Pearlman gets bumped up to head the Violent Crimes Unit cases. Bunk goes to bat for Omar, who he believes is being set up- which earns him the ire of his fellow detectives. Greggs solves the Braddock murder using good old-fashioned detective instincts. Prez unlocks a secret to reaching his students- and discovers some resources hidden away in a storage room in the school. Colvin realizes that his new group is going to be tougher to make headway with than he thought. And Carcetti starts to get a feel for his new job.

    Again, nothing earth-shattering. But this show makes even the mundane, everyday stuff so enjoyable that you don't mind.
