A MUST SEE : ALL SEASONS.....this has to be one of the top 10 shows of all time West Wing being number one this series is amazing as well......watch it second season about the kids is so good.....The Wire should be in everyones library....i wish i could give this 10 stars.Score: 5/5

Outstanding.I own a TV but don't have cable or even an antenna. Basically, I don't really watch TV and had never been a fan of a show. However, that changed after watching The Wire. The plot and the characters are extremely well developed, and the story becomes as complex and intriguing as any top rated novel. This show truly changed my appreciation of what can be made for TV..Score: 5/5

Excellent cop showOne of the best cop shows produced. The opening scene of the pilot had me hooked. The lines below describes the direction he show will take. Det. James 'Jimmy' McNulty: I got to ask you. If every time Snotboogie would grab the money and run away, why'd you even let him in the game? Witness: What? Det. James 'Jimmy' McNulty: If Snotboogie always stole the money, why'd you let him play? Witness: You got to, this America, man..Score: 5/5

STILL NOT CONVINCEDOK, I'M WAITING FOR THIS TO GET GOOD. WHILE, STARTING OUT OK, JUST LIKE MOST OTHER COP DRAMAS, IT IS GETTING BETTER. EVEN HOWARD STERN SAID THAT HE DID NOT START GETTING INTO IT UNTIL THE SECOND SEASON. FIRST EPISODE REALLY DIDN'T PUT A HOOK IN ME. JUST LIKE THE NEW AMC DRAMA IN THE CIVIL WAR, "HELL ON WHEELS", OR "SONS OF ANARCHY", STOPPED WATCHING AFTER THE FIRST EPISODE. I AM WATCHING THIS FOR WHAT IT IS, A COP DRAMA PRODUCED IN 2002. WHILE SOME SAY THEY MAKE THEIR KIDS WATCH IT BECAUSE IT REPRESENTS LIFE ON THE STREETS OF BALTIMORE, THAT DOESN'T MEAN I MAKE MY KIDS WATCH "BREAKING BAD". NOW, THAT IS THE BEST, LET ME SAY AGAIN, BEST SHOW ON TV RIGHT NOW. YES, EVEN BETTER THAT MAD MEN. THAT IS THE ONE AND ONLY SHOW, THAT HAD ME IN THE FIRST 2 MINUTES OF THE TRAILER, RIGHT UP UNTIL "FACE OFF". CLASS ACT. I AM STILL GIVING "THE WIRE" A CHANCE, I WANT TO LIKE IT..Score: 3/5

The Great American NovelThe Wire has done what few shows ever accomplished which is make a show that felt like a novel slowly unfolding over the screen. In an interview David Simon said The Wire is a portrayal of the forgotten class of people. These people who may have been able to find work as factory workers a couple of decades ago are no longer needed as big companies outsource their labor. So America has allow this class to fight over the scraps, drugs. This is depressing, beautiful and tragic. And it makes great television..Score: 5/5

The Wire - Season 1 episode 1Set in Baltimore's underbelly amidst the puss and slugs of a marginalized community honest cops fight an uphill battle against street level crime. Everyone is foul mouthed and bad tempered without a shred of relief in their pathetic lives - and that just the cops. The most compelling character is the young, black, gay cop. All others are interchangeable clichés..Score: 2/5

Almost PerfectThe story and characters were great. The acting superb. The portrayal of a dysfunctional police force (which they all are) accurate. My only criticism is that this is native 4:3 and not 16:9. I realize in 2002 HD was not main stream. Perhaps it is time to rerelease this in HD. Thanks for the great series..Score: 5/5

An Amazing show...This show is still top notch, but I have a question, why aren't all of the episodes in widescreen presentation and surround sound? I was just curious....Score: 5/5

A work of art - Astonished it's not more popularThis is without doubt one of the finest TV series ever made. I'm only writing this review as it's sad to think that more people might not enjoy a truly awesome show. It's not for passive watching, it's like reading a book you just can't book down. Sure there's some barriers to entry, it can be hard to understand and you have to pay attention but it's worth it every single minute. I'm not normally bossy but you simply have to watch it. Please. You'll say this after you've seen it - I promise..Score: 5/5

Top cop drama, strongly recommendedBefore watching this show, I had only heard and read brief reviews about The Wire. I am usually sceptical about TV series in general, however, this being HBO, and the fact that ALL reviews were fantastic, I gave it a shot. I was blown away. The depth of ALL of the characters, not just the main 2 or 3 is very well thought out, and clearly there was thought of seasons after season 1. The character and story arcs are large, but well thought out. Most police shows are not good. Plain and simple. There are very unrealistic scenes, circumstances and scenarios. Paired with the fact that typical cop TV shows require 2000 bullets being fired for one person to be shot. Ridiculous. This is no such show. I have to admit, the first few episodes were slow. I understand now that this was because it was laying the group work for a very sophisticated and deep television series spanning past season 1. It has an unprecedented array of character arcs that intertwine with each other to such a degree, I have to put the show on pause at time just to put it all together. Fantastic. This show allows you to think, which is something I enjoy. As most reviewers also state, this shows closest rival with regards to "realism" is probably "Southland". This show is not filmed like Southland (semi-single camera situations). It is filmed similar to The Sopranos with multiple cuts and angles of all characters-typical HBO fashion. The fact that this show follows the story of not just the police, but also the "gangsters" is a nice touch. The viewer gets to look in to both sides of the situation involving both parties, allowing you to know more than the actual characters do inside the series. Watch it, you will not be disappointed. Highly recommended..Score: 5/5

Great but not brilliantVery good - but not brilliant Dominic West can't play a convincing drunk - but does rather good american accent for a sheffield born old Etonian - well done Dom! - praise you agent! Overall the series (I'm up to 4) has been good - the lack of `Star's' has led to the viewer not been distracted and the characters have developed with the story, bringing to the show the extra edge. From that basis I thing it's the best I've seen since NYPD blue. I was impressed by the lack of the `recapping' - it makes the viewer more involved and reminds me of the days when all programmes engendered a loyalty in the audience. The box set is more expensive retail - HMV series 1 - 50 quid reduced to 25 quid!.Score: 4/5

Simply FantasticI know this is a lot of money for only 13 episodes of television but it is worth every penny of it. Not only is this possibly the greatest televion drama's of our time, it makes you think about social issue's from completely different perspectives. These range from cops to fishermen and everything inbetween..Score: 5/5

HBO presents Season 2 of this gritty drama series that focuses on the vagaries of crime and law enforcement in Baltimore, MD. Setting up in the wake of the first season's joint homicide/narcotics detail that exposed a major drug operation — and left its members stigmatized and reassigned — the second season expands to include not only familiar drug dealers, but a group of longshoremen and organized crime members who are caught up in a major homicide case. The cast includes Dominic West, Chris Bauer, Paul Ben-Victor, John Doman, Idris Elba, and Frankie R. Faison.
