This is, without a doubt, the finest TV series ever written. Others come close, but none are so complex, intimate, exciting, heartbreaking, and enlightening.

Entertaining Education
The reason I LOVE this series as much as I do ... it's believable and educational. If I were a history teacher, I would use some of these episodes to help show what goes wrong when you have big government!

I only watched the first disc and I must say that despite the great reviews of this series I was not overly impressed. It struck me as just another cop & criminal show with a twist. A twist that is not realy original. There was another show a few...

Greatest EVER
The greatest mark of shame for the Emmy awards is the fact that they never once recognized HBO's The Wire. Though the ride through the series is, at times, difficult and emotionally draining there is no doubt that it is a journey worth taking. The...
