He was a great character, but never a focus of the show. He was the lone gunslinger in a show about the system. Stringer, Avon, Bunk, Cool Lester Smooth, McNulty. Then maybe Omar. But what about Bubbles and Marlo. Wallace? Deangelo? The show is the goat.

I finally saw Get Out.

Still, I enjoyed the story. It was good.



I have been thinking about how to more fully respond to this, off and on for the past couple days. I didn't just want to be snarky, and give you a serious response, because I think you're being earnest, and you're not a horrible monster like Essay.

Thanks for the response. He has definitely dated white girls, since he's married to one of the main white chicks in Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

I didn't view anything about Get Out to be liberal/conservative. Sure, the dad mentioned he would have voted for Obama, but I think that could be viewed as any of the hundreds of lies he told and not specific to a "liberal bubble" or whatever.

I definitely appreciated the subtle racism throughout and explained it to the kids that watched it with me. (i.e. Mentioning Tiger Woods, Jesse Owens, Obama, etc) I enjoyed that part, and it you think the end was just standard horror movie fare, I'll believe you. That's just not how I received it.

what you say here is obvious and true. the movie was about the "soft" racism of liberal whites. anybody who didn't get that must have been stone drunk when watching or mentally disabled - they certainly were not subtle about what they were trying to say. but that idea, that truth, doesn't make a good movie. the idea was clever, the execution was lacking. the main character is a great actor, his episode of black mirror being the best of that show, but he was left with nothing to work with in this movie. i just didn't think it was any good.

I hate every fiber of his being. He's awful and everything he writes is wrong, coupled with being annoying. Its uncanny how awful he is. If he was around when this thread was thriving, he would have killed it. Thankfully, he wasnt.

Maybe in the real world, he's not so awful (evidence says otherwise) but here, he makes me want to fight. Nobody makes me want to fight. Its beyond weird. I almost feel bad, but I dont
