First deal so be nice!

This is the cheapest by about £10 that I have seen this (been looking regularly for a few months).

The final season of one of the greatest TV shows made.

Cheapest price around, £10 cheaper than Play.... yet people vote it cold without any comments as to why?

If the deal is not good, can you say why so I don't waste your/my time with other cold deals?

Good price

can someone tell me the best series to start with if i aiant seen this yet? I began with homicide life on the seat and it was series 3 . The early series can be bit rubbish thats why.



I know it is by the same creators so am interested. Don't relaly think these TV series are as good as made out though. Don't people recall things like Brideshead Revisited, Twin Peaks, Driving Ambition, Coast to Coast, Smileys People, Auf Veedersane Pet, Magic Micro Mission? Silly lumpenproletariat.

I recall all of those, and The Wire is better than all of them. I won't take offence at being labelled a 'lumpenproletariat' though and will advise you to start with Season 1. The early seasons of this show are not rubbish.

It is an excellent series.... definitely start at season 1 and work through as some story lines follow throughout the 5 seasons.
Many people find it takes a few episodes to get into.. me included but then it is more gripping than araldite.

9.7/10 from 15k ratings on IMDB - imdb.com/tit…14/

You could say there was a story arch over the whole five seasons. You need to start at the beginning.

thanks all - I will try and get a good deal on the first series then.

Not at all relevant to the OP, but I loved Magic Micro Mission. Been trying for decades to get hold of it. Reviews of 16/48, Willie Rushton playing Manic Miner, Battle of the Toothpaste Tubes, great title theme, awesome wireframe animation set to an electronic version of Swan Lake, lonely wireframe person throwing stones into a wireframe lake then flying around wireframe cityscapes. Maybe one day I'll see it again.
