Me being ‘pickie’ of The Wire
I decided to watch this series again and last Friday evening,
I began the second series.
Those familiar with this program will recall that this Series 2 starts with Jimmy McNulty assigned to the Baltimore Harbor Police.
In the opening scene, the water police patrol boat, with our Jimmy the Deckhand, is bearing down on a luxury cruiser, aptly or facetiously, named “Capital Gains” and is registered in Washington DC.
Jimmy, our hero, boards the broken down vessel to inquire whats wrong, he is informed that there is an electrical fault, and the motor wont start. The host of the party on board reaches into his wallet, obviously to offer our Jimmy a bribe, to take their time, in towing the boat to safe harbour.
Scene fades to late evening, and there is the disabled “Capital Gains” being towed, slowly, along by Jimmy and his sergeant, in the darkness with all lights blazing and music blaring.
Need I say more?
