The Wire is a gritty based on real life show portraying the tough streets of Baltimore Maryland. The show demonstrates the views of the corner drug dealers, the Police, the Boatsmen, the politicians and even the journalists. Its an edge of your seat experience that wraps you up with interest from the very first episode to the last.

An ensemble cast switches between cops and criminals in the drug business of Baltimore, each season switching their settings.

Impeccable, fantastic, thrilling. You can't get enough of this political/drug/police/social drama. Briliantly written and acted, the show has a steady pace and intense plot twists, enough to keep you on the edge of your seat for a long long time. A must-watch.

It's almost as good as people say. At times it can be a little too much to digest, but you won't revet seeing it through. It's a show full of complex characters; one that is incredibly well written and as equally well acted.
