Good deal.
Pity it's not online.
Searched HMV site but it is showing £69

Bargain at twice the price! TV at the height of its powers.

Excellent price

Cheapest online I think is Amazon at £61.97

Best tv show ever. Would be interested to know if this is nationwide as I've some Hmv vouchers I can use

Fantastic show. I've bought the series individually (wasn't sure I'd like it) ... but I can thoroughly recommend it. Heck - even the Mrs. likes it and she's not into "serious" drama. If you can get this I recommend you do

is there only 5 seasons?

is it better than the shield?

I bought it a while ago for £50 from HMV in Manchester

Not the 'best' in my opinion, that would go to The Sopranos

Best show of all time. Bought the Soprano's box set as I heard people say it was better, half way through the second series of that but so far the Wire's the better of the two. Got the Shield first series to watch that was cheap on here, can't see it being better though. Great price here

lpoolm

is there only 5 seasons? is it better than the shield?



Yes only 5 seasons. Better than the Shield? In a word yes, but two very different shows. The Shield is excellent at having very punchy episodes with lots of action where you can dip in and out. The Wire is a deeper, longer building show that is a very rewarding watch over the course of each season. Many people struggle after the first few episodes but give it time and you will not be disappointed.

I still personally prefer the Sopranos, but only just. You may prefer the Wire now but I think once you have finished the Sopranos you may feel like me in that it just pips it.

This is the B E S T series i have every watched on TV, loved every second of it. A bit confusing at first but stick with it and sit back and enjoy!

The Shield does not come close, thought it was quite pants in all fairness!

This is a no brainer. If you have 50 squid to spare then just buy this set and see how tv dramas should be made.
Best thing I have seen in a long long time.

AWESOME - go get this ... I'm most of the way through season 4 and I'm truly upset that I'm close to the end. I envy anyone who has yet to watch this series - it really lives up to it's plaudits.

And this is a great price - heat added.

i concur with everyone above, ive just started season 3 after mauling through the first 2

excellent viewing - Hot

After hearing all the good reviews I tried to watch this when it was being shown on BBC, but really struggled to get into it. I dunno, but with other US crime shows like CSI I guess I was expecting something a bit more high-tech from a show called "The Wire".

Sure it had a more gritty street feel to it, but it just didn't click with me.

Ive seen and loved all the above mentioned shows and for you guys looking for your next fix I feel I must recommend Breaking Bad , its one of the finest shows I have ever seen and is right up there alongside the greats mentioned . I watched 3 seasons in 2 weeks and sadly now have to wait almost 12 months to find out what happens next .

just watched all 5 seasons in the past 2 weeks, as everyone on here was stating it was one of the best, and it is. Brilliant acting, writing etc.. started watching The Corner, all 6 episodes are on Virgin, made by the same people with some of the same actors in it, also very good

A friend got me into the wire last year and it did take a few episodes to really get into it but once I did I was totally hooked, loved every minute. With each season I watched I hated the understanding that I was one more season toward there being no more to watch. Absolutely gutted that it had to end but it was such a fantastic series to have watched. It more than worth the £60 I paid so £50 is just even better

Is it still there? I started watching it on my virgin box but completely forgot where it was. The menu system for on demand is terrible.

Boxsets are the only way to watch these - brillant. You end up watching 2, 3 or even 4 episodes on the trot ....

Sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeit that's a good price!
Really good series - I perfered the Sopranos, but each to their own. For £50 you can't go wrong.

A superb series once you get into the various characters. Great price too.

Anyone else bought this from somewhere other than the Bluewater? Is it nationwide?

I've seen it in Southend HMV.
