Bubbles is a bad character? You fucking TRIPPIN!!!!!!!!!! Bubbles is the heart and soul of the show. A lot of the show was driven by Bubbles being a CI, plus his growth from being a low down drug addict and struggling to get clean was brilliant acting/writing. Damn brah.
He served a purpose in the show, but his story was almost too depressing. I mean think about it, in the course of 5 seasons he thought he cought HIV like 7 times, killed a kid with a hot dose, relapsed 30 times, continuously got the shit beaten out of him, sold white T's in the ghetto and was locked in the basement by his own sister and not allowed to come into the common areas of her house.
That sucks, lol. I couldn't stand him.
And there really wasn't that much brilliance in his character. Apparently it was based off of a real person that David Simon knew who ended up dying in real life during the filming of season 4.
Me not liking him had nothing to do with his acting, because the performance was on point...
