Description

One of television's most critically acclaimed programmes, The Wire challenges viewers with a "cop show" unlike anything else on air.

The HBO series addresses the seedy side of Baltimore's finest looking into money, drugs, politics and murder. Told from the point of view of both the police and their targets, the series captures a universe of subterfuge and surveillance, where easy distinctions between good and evil, and crime and punishment, are challenged at every turn.

A study on urban life in one of America's toughest cities, each season of The Wire has focused on a different aspect of Baltimore, starting with the police force and the drug trade, then moving on to City Hall, the education system and concluding with the media. Over the course of five seasons, David Simon has endeavoured to build a city.

It is a groundbreaking, complex and political look at the streets of America, detailed and fiercely intelligent; there is no other show like it on TV.

Outstanding police drama, a truly amazing series. This is not the traditional cop show, this is a really realistic drama, a unique one. Very well executed, you won't be disappointed.

Best series ever

I had heard others talking about this series years ago and had also had it recommended by friends, but just dismissed this as another American cop show. But this is a lot more than that. I nearly gave up after the 1st episode, as some the street slang takes a bit to get used to. But I guarantee, if you stick with it, it quickly becomes addictive. As I said this is lot more than your average cop show, there is no conclusion at the end of each episode, the story just develops, you get to know personally the main players in the story, the cops, the corrupt & questionable hierarchy they have to deal with & plus the main players of Barksdale Crew (the bad). The story telling is great & also the character development is awesome, it shows the good & the bad of the main players one of who is the charismatic Detective McNulty played by Dominic West & you also gain some empathy for some of the bad guy's especially D'Angelo played by the brilliantly Lawrence Gillard Jr. I have now seen series 1&2, sometimes doing 3 episodes a night, but cannot wait to watch watch the 3, 4 & 5.

I bought this series in a boxed set for my 83 year old Mother who is an avid Soprano's fan as I knew just how good it was. My Mum agrees that this tops the Sopranos in its plotting, acting and sheer complexity. She is having sleepless nights watching it as she cannot wait to see what happens next. I hope to borrow it and watch it again soon myself!

This is a really great series, which shows ugly side of big US cities in very deep and meaningful way. This is not only the crime series but social commentary dealing with crime and its roots, impact of closure of factories and docks, politicial corruption, school system and power of the media. Acting is at its best here, even without big names. Also writing and characterisation are superb. There are no black and white characters. Even the agressive and violent gangsters have their good sides, and good cops have bad ones. It has only one disadvantage, while watching it is always one more epizode you want to see, and suddently the whole day passed. I recommend this wholeheartidly.

I'm taking to hitting my head on the wall, to erase this from my memory, so I can watch it all again, and re-live the pleasure that was discovering this TV series for the first time. It 's a landmark show, and I hope it gets released on Blu-Ray someday, so I have an excuse to do it all again!

A wonderful watch. Each season delves into the social-political dirt of a different part of Baltimore. Full of remarkable and memorable characters. It is a slow burner, taking a couple of episodes to fully develop but the powerful depiction of all aspects of life in Baltimore City soon becomes compelling and impossible to stop watching. It is like a great novel, full of adult depictions of real life, without the clichés that are constant in modern TV dramas. A must watch and a future classic.

Say good bye to your life for the foreseeable future ! I was bought this as a gift and having never seen it was a bit daunted by how much time it would take up to watch. No fear though as soon as I watched the first disk I was hooked and found myself making up excuses just to watch it. Sleep ? who needs sleep watch the wire, it draws you in with out you realising and before you know it your hooked.The stories are slow burners keeping you wanting more of the raw gritty drama,
