Best price I can find for The Wire at the moment for those of us with any money left...
What it says on the tin:
One of television's most critically acclaimed programmes, The Wire 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.

A truly amazing TV series. I thought Band of Brothers and Sopranos raised the bar so high that nothing could surpass them until I watched The Wire. The only annoying thing about this show is that you end up measuring everything else up to it and other shows just seem to fall short. If you haven't watched this, do yourself a favour and buy it now.

You swine, you've made me go and buy it! Already watched them all but very much looking forward to the opportunity to watch them again. As everyone has already said, if you enjoy good TV, this is as good as it gets!

A great price for probably (along with The Sopranos) the greatest TV drama ever made.

Such a shame that the BBC broadcast it so late and couldn't get the internet rights to put it on the iPlayer but with the DVDs this cheap hopefully lots more people will get to experience this incredible show.

I bought the DVDs a couple of years ago but am almost tempted to buy them again as I haven't seen mine for months as friends keep on borrowing them!
#19
rubbish show NOT

this is not one to miss
#20
Just buy it, don't hesitate, best TV show ever.
#21
I really liked the show. Not as good as Deadwood but still worth a look.
#22
Close call, but IMO 'The Shield' is superior. More drama, and even more tension in a lot of scenes. Shane and Vic faceoff, season 4, best scene ever.

The Wire is excellent. Hot.
#23
Also on Tesco Entertainment for the same price, but with 8% cashback as well:

Very true. I like how the shield moves faster pace. I have struggled with getting into the wire due to the slow pace.
#25
Best series ever but like others I have tons to watch so Im gonna wait in the hope the price drops further.
#26
The Shield is simply not better than The Wire. That's just laughable.

Sadly I own the first three seasons, so this is a no-purchase for me. Damnit.
#27
I plan to watch this eventually when i've exhausted all my other tv shows. Kind of hoping this is due on bluray at some point?

Lol at all the praise for this show.

Why LOL if you've never seen it ?(_;)

Slow to begin with, was thinking of giving up on it............then it all fell into place


Will wait until it's £19.99, buying The West Wing at about £3 a series at the mo

I watched the first season a couple of years ago and haven't felt compelled to watch it since. It's obviously a quality show that i intend to finish at some stage but i'm prepared to wait for a bluray release or when i've got nothing else to watch.

At 20 quid i'd be tempted.

Could be a long wait for Blu-ray :(
Apparently the series was filmed in SD and 4:3 aspect.
Still possible to transfer to Blue-ray but time and MONEY may mean this is never done.
But then again does such a good story as this need some icing on it's cake?

Afaik The Wire was shot on 35mm film, just like most of HBO' shows, but David Simon took the decision to produce the show in 4:3 SD to give it a gritty look which he felt suited it better than widescreen HD.

As it's considered by just about everyone who's seen it to be one of the greatest TV shows ever made it seems to have been a good decision by him.

Plus whilst it continues to be one of the best selling DVDs on Amazon I also doubt that HBO will go to the enormous expense of reproducing the entire series any time soon.

The most over-hyped, over rated TV show of all time. Think "The Bill" with American accents, re-written by Guardian readers and you wouldn't be far wrong.

"The Bill" with American accents! Sound like a good recommendation to me.
