£1 cheaper than it was when posted here last week (at Amazon), Zavvi has the 5th season of HBO's "The Wire" for £15.95 with free delivery.

Read Between The Lines.
In a city that can no longer even recognize its problems, much less begin to solve them, police detectives attempt to bring in one last, worthy case against a violent crew of narcotics traffickers. And when bureaucratic poverty and infighting threatens that case, one detective will risk everything, creating a fraud that will eventually entangle the city newspaper, which is weakened by declines in circulation and advertising. With journalism itself so vulnerable and desperate, an unscrupulous, ambitious reporter will ride the story wherever it goes - or wherever he wants it to go.

From the streets to the port to the schools and the halls of government, The Wire has chronicled the tribulations of a post-industrial American city. Now, in its final season, the drama directs its last question to the media and its consumers: If anything in The Wire's depiction of urban America was genuine or important then what is it, exactly, that occupies our attentions? What are the stories we embrace? And what are the stories we ignore? And why?

Special Features

* "The Wire: The Last Word" a documentary exploring the role of the media.
* "The Wire Odyssey" a retrospective of the first four seasons.
* Six audio commentaries with creator David Simon, cast and crew.
