I'm only a third of the way through season 2, and I'm completely involved. In fact, I watched four episodes straight last night, and now have to wait until Netflix delivers more tomorrow. Just great stuff. Glad to see my old pals McNulty, Omar and Bubbles. Love the sub-plot about the Balto. City police major who only decides to do real police work when a longshoreman's union boss beats him to a window donation in the new nave of a local Catholic church. Too funny, and quite real. Al Brown's Bawlmorese is exquisite: I've never heard such a strong Dundalk accent on TV outside of John Waters films or Babs Mikulski on CSPAN.
