If you haven't seen it yet, you should definitely try it. The writing, the acting - impeccable.

HBO HAD to do something to keep it's Urban audience satisfied after OZ, and they came up with the PERFECT solution with The Wire . Suspense; check . Drama; check . Good actor's; check . All around Entertaining; BIG check . If you were a fan of HBO's The Sorprano's, then this series was DEFINITELY for you, as it was, and still is for me ....

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.

5 seasons of pure brilliance. Writing, Social commentary, story line and actors - it has the lot.
We all thought that a season 6 might be added - but no.
It should have won an award !
So enjoy it - maybe buy it at a 'Car Boot' / 'Garage' sale.
In many ways it might make a good 'English' project for schools !!

Had average ratings and didn't win major awards during it's run, but it's considered one the the greatest tv series of all time. I concur.
