Description:

Includes every episode from mini-series The Wire

One of television's most critically acclaimed programmes, The Wire challenges viewers with a "cop show" unlike anything on air. Universally lauded, The Guardian claimed that 'you either love The Wire or you haven't seen it yet' - now there is no excuse with the release of this complete box-set.

The HBO series 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. Over the course of five seasons, David Simon has endeavoured to build a city.

It is a groundbreaking, complex and political look at the streets of America, detailed and fiercely intelligent; there is no other show like it on TV.

Special Features:

Season 1: Three episode audio commentaries with writer/creator David Simon, director Clarke Johnson and writer George Pelecano
Season 2: Episode audio commentaries
Season 3: Q&A with David Simons and Creative Team, courtesy of the museum of Television & Radio.
Conversation with David Simons at Eugene Lang College, The new School for Liberal Arts.
Five Audio Commentaries with Creator David Simons, Director Joe Chappelle, Writer Richard Price and George Pelecanos, and Producers Karen L. Thorson and Nina K. Noble.
Season 4: An Hour-Long Behind-The-Scenes Documentary In Two Parts: 'It's All Connected' and The Game Is Real
Six Audio Commentaries With Creator David Simon, Cast And Crew
Season 5: Six episode audio commentaries

MY top TV series of all time, just above The Wedt Wing and The Sopranos.
TV that doesn't hold your hand and doesn't just give you what you want/expect.
The Guardian summed it up for me- "You either love The Wire...or you haven't seen it yet.
Hot at twice the price.

@ lovewizard - no probs, if you don't ask you don't find out is my motto

keep an eye out, because this deal has been available before, so it may be re-stocked at tesco in the future

Don't really understand Tesco Entertainment. Last week I purchased a copy of Prison Break Complete for £30. It was available at time of purchase and within hours my account showed "unavailable." They now have same box set advertised currently at something like £130 and available for next day dispatch. Oh and they don't give me the option to cancel either so will probably show on my account until the end of time. Surely they have some obligation to fulfil the purchase. Don't bother with them any more - too much of a hassle despite these so-called bargains.
