The Wire - Complete [24-Disc Box Set]
  • 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.

Quick delivery and a great price was very impressed

The Wire

We've watched this before and both of us were so taken by it that we had to see it again and again etc. So that's why we bought the box set!

The wire

Gritty, real life, believable drama. Thais has the feel of a true life documentary almost. Riveting viewing.

The Wire Complete Boxset

I'm pleased with the service provided by Zavvi. The boxset arrived on time, was well packaged and was as described.

the wire

fast, not damaged and received in very prompt speed. I would recommend and say the price was reasonable for a classic american series

Complete Series

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. Recommended

The Wire Complete

Bought as a present, as requested by the recipient as The Wire is such a good show!

Wire is a classic

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!
