this quiz has been long overdue in my opinion. Only 33.3% for Clay Davis, Sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet. 5/5 strange sporcle symbols.

love the wire. thanks for making my day

This was tougher than I thought - a lot of faces I couldn't put a name to. Great mix of characters from all 5 seasons though. Time to watch them all again I reckon
Sep 24th, 2009 at 23:14 GMT
Great quiz. "Characters" is misspelled in the quiz description.
Sep 26th, 2009 at 08:39 GMT
I've been wanting this quiz for a long, long time. Nice work! Couple of things - it doesn't accept 'Spiros' or 'Spiros Vondas', but it does accept 'Vondas'. Little odd. And no Brother Mouzone, Kenard, Klebanow, or Whiting? They're much more pivotal than say, Renaldo or Fruit! Other than that, great work on finally creating a quiz for the best show ever made.
Sep 26th, 2009 at 12:22 GMT
Oops, my bad, Mouzone is there. My mistake.
Sep 26th, 2009 at 18:37 GMT
@Mongoose - you're right. Definitely some names I didn't recognize. The fifth season was my undoing, and I can't believe that I took me so long to think of Proposition Joe.

Great quiz, I was about to make it myself if somebody hadn't. I think "Tony Gray" should be accepted as that's what he's usually known as. For the record, it's "Sonja Sohn". And I got them all!
Sep 26th, 2009 at 22:00 GMT
And if you're looking to perfect it/add more, the most prominent and memorable other characters I can think of are: Walon (Steve Earle), Brianna Barksdale (Michael Hyatt), Judge Daniel Phelan (Peter Gerety), Shardene Innes (Wendy Grantham), Terrence Fitzhugh (Doug Olear), Michael Santangelo (Michael Salconi), Marla Daniels (Maria Broom), Elena McNulty (Callie Thorne), Odell Watkins (Frederick Strother), and De'Londa Brice (Sandi McCree) Sporcle might be more likely to publish it if they're organized by the season they were introduced, or by the character groupings (street, police, press, politics, etc.)
Sep 29th, 2009 at 17:51 GMT
To even out the columns, I suggest you break the Street section in two. You can do that by slightly differentiating the Groups. It may be as siple as adding a blank before "Street" on all data lines from Bill Raymond down. You may also want to move this to 4 columns so that it mostly or completely fits on one page.
Good work, and I wish we got the show in Canada.
Sep 29th, 2009 at 22:03 GMT
Great quiz, although I did terribly on it.
Oct 3rd, 2009 at 19:56 GMT
Excellent quiz. I've just made a Wire quotes quiz if anyone's interested...
Oct 6th, 2009 at 06:45 GMT
How could I forget Marlo?! And thanks for not making us spell out Prezbawhatsitsky!
Oct 6th, 2009 at 07:36 GMT
According to the HBO website, it's "Klebanow". Excellent quiz for an excellent show.
Oct 7th, 2009 at 20:46 GMT
so happy somebody finally made this. i wish there was one with pictures like on some of the other ones. and i can't believe i forgot donut from season 4! he's awesome.
Oct 7th, 2009 at 21:26 GMT
No love for the sexy Teresa D'agostino?
Oct 11th, 2009 at 14:15 GMT
Great show, great quiz.
Oct 28th, 2009 at 08:16 GMT
I forgot Clay Davis?! Sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeit.
Nov 7th, 2009 at 21:36 GMT
Good quiz should accept Reginald for bubbles though
May 11th, 2011 at 07:30 GMT
if you include jay spry you definitely need to include fletcher, the guy who does the story on bubbles in season 5, he's a pretty important Baltimore Sun character. Otherwise, really good job
May 17th, 2011 at 03:30 GMT
obviously, a lot of characters and not everyone can be included... but Twigg was another fairly notable reporter from season 5. Also, another group could be made for the courts and move Pearlman, Levy, Phelan, etc. to that category. Maybe add Rupert Bond.
