One of television's most critically acclaimed programmes, The Wire challenges viewers with a "cop show" unlike anything else on air.

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.

am getting sick of writing 'best tv show ever', every time a deal comes up for this, but i just feel i have to stick up for it everytime lol.

Just started watching series 4, "ive been on a sort of Wire-A-thon, for a couple of weeks now and it is the ShiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiT

lol, seems a good deal.

Yeah I watched the whole thing in like two weeks, really is superb TV. My brother showed me the f**k scene and that was me hooked, gotta love McNulty and the Bunk

It's not a cop show!

This show is crap and boring. If you are after a great TV show then get this:

No, it's quite an old series and the earlier episodes were definitely shot in the pre-HD days.

Just finished watching the last series a couple of mins ago after having the box set for some time. All that needs to be said is you must watch this box set. The programme is excellent.

its not that old, and There's loads of films that were shot years ago that can look good on Blu-ray, or so I believe, depending on how they were shot,Star Wars for example

OMAR COMIN'!!!

Exactly, fi the film/series is shot on film then it can look good in "HD". Zulu and The Sopranos for example.

35mm film is much higher resolution than 1080p anyway.
