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.

I missed The Wire when it was on TV and now am enjoying it in the comfort of my armchair before a roaring fire and a glass of fine wine - heaven. I cannot praise it enough, but I must get back to the next disc!

The Wire - way down in the whole

Every now and then a TV series comes along that just completely blows you away, for me The wire was just that series. Each season focuses on a different part of life in Baltimore from the illegal drugs trade, the seaport system, the city government, the school system, and finally the news media. Some people complained that story lines were too slow and complicated but for me that was it's strength, something you can really get your teeth into. Excellent acting from many actors you won't have seen before, including several British actors (with flawless US accents). If you buy one box set this year make it The Wire.

If you're sick of endless talent shows, soap operas and talent shows but enjoy well made television, you're in for a treat. The Wire showcases all that can be good about US TV. Superbly written by a team of acclaimed writers and starring as good an ensemble cast as you've seen. The Wire is totally absorbed multi faceted and completely gripping -get ready to become addicted.
