Season 4 of the Wire is complete and the season ended with a main focus on the four boys Namond, Randy, Dukie, and Michael. Namond ended up getting adopted by Colvin, Randy goes back into social services, Dukie is on the streets selling drugs working for Michael, and Michael is turning into a street thug, hitman for Marlo. I really liked the focus on the four boys because it gave another great story to focus on besides the war between Marlo and the Baltimore PD. Mayor Carcetti is still struggling to keep his city together but it looks like he’s going to focus on his future, instead of helping out the schools of Baltimore. Sadly we will not be moving on to season 5, but I will certainly watch it to see how the series finishes.
Besides watching the last episodes, I completed a combination of assignments to include 4 daily creates as well as remixes and mashups for my central character Chris Partlow. The two assignments I submitted were vine inspired videos of Chris from the show and a video I created that involved a laugh track added to a scene with Chris committing a drive by shooting. Next week will be a wrap-up to the semester and the final project so I will have many more assignments to finish with Chris Partlow in mind.
