    ITEM#: 11239577

    The fifth and final season of THE WIRE excavates yet another layer of city life: the media. As budget cutbacks for both the police and the press threaten their public missions, they also gives rise to corruption. Show creator David Simon (a former Baltimore reporter himself) interweaves the story of a young journalist faking stories for the Baltimore Sun with that of Detective McNulty (Dominic West), who concocts a serial killer in order to funnel funds to an underground investigation of drug dealer Marlo Stanfield (Jamie Hector). As always, the show's superb cast of characters--including a late appearance by stickup artist Omar Little (Michael K. Williams)--and sharply drawn institutions influence each other in ways that lay bare the determining forces of society; few television shows would attempt it, and fewer still would succeed. As THE WIRE comes to a close, some loose ends are tied up while others are left dangling. It's a testament to the show that it honors life's lack of resolution rather than the tidy, and ultimately dishonest, wrap-ups of most cop shows.

    • The Final season of a monumental project.

      I live in Baltimore and I love Baltimore. This show deals with many social, political and cultural issues that confront all of us urban dwellers across this great country. I understand the the series is now part of university socialogy programs. Well, it should be because it is so profound. Oh yes, it is also very entertaining.

    • Fast!

      My boyfriend is in the Army & is always buying DVD's and such, so he has something to do in his free time. He asked me to order this set for him because I was telling him how I could get it cheaper online than what he is paying at the store on base. I received my order in less than a week! :) (Ordered on the 8th, delivered on the 13th.) Made me happy. I ordered a different set of DVD's off another site.. and they didn't arrived over 2 weeks later! THANKS FOR BEING SO PROMPT OVERSTOCK! :)
