For this video discussion of Season 2 Episode 9 of The Wire, “Stray Rounds,” Paul Bond and I were joined by UMW #wire106 internauts Lakisha Mahone and Nicky Memita. This discussion was pretty tight, and I found it a lot of fun. Since we’ve been coordinating discussions more by having everyone who is joining share a few screenshots from the episode they want to discuss in relationship to design. These screenshots could be composition, set design, costume design, etc. The idea is to have a shared focus of attention for the discussions, and I think it is working pretty well.
We spent a fair share of time talking about twenty screenshots. I’m including them below just in case you want a closer look. Enjoy!
