For the record...so there are no misunderstandings, confusions or other forms of miscommunication...HBO's The Wire is by far and away the greatest, grittiest and realest crime drama to have ever blessed our televisions. If you want to know what it's really like on:
1. The Streets
2. The police force
3. Back room politics
Then this show is it!
Some may dismiss it as being another voilent, shoot 'em up, cops vs. robbers TV series, but it's much, much more than that. The Wire has taken the American living room and brought it into the street's of Baltimore (the largest open air drug market in the world). I can't begin to describe the depth of this show, nor would my words do it justice if I could.
It must simply be watched, absorbed, re-watched and then watched again.
For those who disagree - I feel sorry for you.
