The Wire: The Complete Series (24 Disc Boxset)
Candid and intense, The Wire has been hailed as one of the great achievements in television artistry by the San Francisco Chronicle. Viewed from the perspective of the principal characters, the police and their targets, The Wire captures a world where easy distinctions between good and evil and crime and punishment are challenged at every turn.
The series first season concentrated on the often-futile efforts of police to infiltrate a West Baltimore drug ring. Seasons two and three introduced new story lines as the drug investigation escalated, adding the pressures on the working class and the citys political leadership to the citys mounting problems. Season four explored the public school system against the backdrop of a new drug empire and mayor, while the fifth and final season centred on the media's role in addressing or failing to address what was really going on in the city.
