Found 28th Dec 2009Made hot 28th Dec 2009
My first post so hope this works.

Went into Tescos just for some food and noticed The Wire, not seen it there before so had a closer look and it was priced at £50. This was in Worcester Warndon Villages store and it was the only one there but the best price i have seen.

Hopefully this will help others out there get a great deal for a grreat show.

Regards

I watched The Wire on BBC2 when they played the whole 5 sreies back to back. If you like in your face police drama, about drugs, money laundering, sellers and dealers then you might like this. This not like any police drama we have in the U.K. If you have delicate ears you'll hate all the bad language. I thought the wire was brillant, I just ignorned all the swear words. This time last year the completed 5 box set on amazon was selling for £149, so I would say this is a bargain.

Whilst I would agree... as its brilliant!
I'm holding out for £35..... anyone think it will happen this year? or will I have to wait untill next christmas LOL...

Only seen 1.5 series.... but loved it:thumbsup::thumbsup:

Great price! Might venture to Tesco if I can't get it on the FS/FT board... hopefully they'll have one in stock!

Amazing best TV show ever, which is backed up by a lot of TV critics and anyone else whos watched it that I know.

Can be a little slow at times but its so realistic, gritty and very clever. The West Wing of crime.

Good price, well certainly cheapest I've seen it.

I'm looking out for this. Bought the whole series as they were being released the first time. Watched every episode and it really can't be beaten. I still think about it all the time, it's such a clever piece of drama, brilliantly shot with such a rich, multi-layered storyline. I want it again so I can watch the lot and keep it forever.

Its £68.27 Tesco online. Amazon have it for £54.99.

also been waiting for a decent price for the box-set. Am tempted!

I also only realised a couple of weeks ago that two of the main actors in The Wire are English!:whistling:

"The Cheese stands alone!"

Hot.

They had this offer in the Gatwick Tesco along with a number of other TV box sets so I assume it's country wide.

It's just been posted for £40 instore at HMV, here:

Got this for £44.99 (using a £5 voucher on play) before xmas. This is a great price and is defo worth purchasing as you will be able to watch the whole series more than once. I have watched all series as I got slightly addicted and was watching 3 or 4 episodes a night and have started watching it again from season 1.

It is not for everyone and at first is a little hard to follow as there are so many characters and a lot of american police jargon but half way through season 1 you should be up to scratch. One of the best TV shows ever, for me only beaten by The Sopranos.

All in all...good deal

Just bought series 2 for £18

Would rather have the whole boxed set for £50

Might have to try and beg for a refund on series 2.

Brilliant series, I would give it 10 out of 10. IMDB give it 9.7...:thumbsup:

Interesting! So what happens if your Archos breaks down?

Also, this is not a dig at you, but people should support quality and talent, whether that be music, tv film or games by buying the product.

And how long to get it onto the Archos? How much was the Archos? What about the Archos codecs? :P

i feel the exact way that if you love summat or you are a real fan of something i.e music, film etc etc then you should buy it (from the cheapest place no doubt) i always buy my favorite artists albums and always buy my fav films on dvd or blu ray, but then again i do download a lot of stuff for fre as well hahaha.

buy dvd/ cd or download it for free mmmmmmmhh its a hard choice but im gonna download every time. any singers/actors short of a few bucks to buy a gold plated jet will have to wait.
