yeh i got an xbox as well, they had quite a few kicking about, people were going a bit nuts over the tvs though, I had to dig about in the dvd section a bit to find this deal

red hot --The Wire transcends genre . Hammstuurdamm

Good series...still cannot belive the actor who plays McNulty has such a posh english accent in real life....

Anyone who hasn't seen this yet and is considering buying it, consider no more! Buy it! Truly one of the best shows ever made IMO. Right next to Sopranos.

wow nobody has asked if it is better than the Shield yet.
And nobody has criticised the Wire for being "too slow"- and in case you were wondering, no it isnt slow. The only thing that is slow are the people that think the Wire is "boring". They can stick with their Prison Break and Lost.

im watching the shield atm, up to season 4 and the quality is starting to drop, hopefully it will pick up again

Best show ever and a bargain at that. Heat added.

This almost made me actuLOL - I had put off watching The Wire purely for these reasons. I only got round to finishing it last weekend, but before that The Shield was by far and away my favourite show.

Don't get me wrong, I still love The Shield and it's a solid 10/10 from me.

But The Wire gets 11/10 (_;)

just to add to the above, worth every penny! season 4 of the wire is the best season of any tv show i have ever watched (which is a fair few lol)

Super hot. Has to be the best price for this excellent series this year!
Pity it's not online.
Don't fancy going to Merry Hell shopping centre even for this set.

i found the characters obnoxious. Didn't even last one episode for me

one of, if not THE best TV show ever made.

Great price, have some heat.

hmm seriously considering buying this, I've never watched it but heard good things about it. Im a huge fan of the sopranos

great price! but i'm going to wait for Blu-ray

Very good show, but never lived up to the hype.
Glad I watched it but prefer The Shield.

Not natively shot in HD, so there's not much point tbh... unless they digitally remaster every single frame (like Disney do for their classic BD releases), then you will get a pretty similar result from your upscaling DVD player or PS3!

Su

awsome series ! great price


shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet

Bargain price for an awesome show, I think it's tied with The Sopranos for best ever.

No BestBuys in NI tho Boo.

The wire needs a new series ive watched the entrie 1-5 four times!

Was no one else slightly let down by Season 5 ? it seemed rushed and slightly far fetched in comparison to the first 4.

I liked it all, but seasons 3 and 4 are to me awesome TV.

I just popped along to see if they had any copies left and was gutted to see an empty space where the boxset should have been. Then, just as I was leaving I spotted another display with them on, right by the checkout.

There's 6 boxsets left at Merry Hill now

BTW. For any Wire fans who are looking for something new to watch, you might consider Breaking Bad - I'm loving it so far.


Good price but i'd save your money for the upcoming boxset of Lost if you want a truly great US drama.
