    Unlike most television crime dramas, which neatly introduce and then solve a case all in the space of one hour, HBO's THE WIRE follows one single drug and homicide investigation throughout the length of an entire season. Centered on the drug culture of inner-city Baltimore, the series' storyline unfolds from the points of view of both the criminals lording the streets and the police officers determined to bring them down. This first season introduces detective Jimmy McNulty (Dominic West) and his supervisor, Cedric Daniels (Lance Reddick), as they begin to pursue evidence against drug kingpin Avon Barksdale (Wood Harris). Meanwhile, Barksdale and his henchmen Stringer (Idris Elba) and Wee-Bey (Hassan Johnson) concern themselves with a rival drug dealer (Michael K. Williams) who's been cutting into their profits. Created by writer David Simon (THE CORNER, HOMICIDE: LIFE ON THE STREET), THE WIRE's multifaceted approach offers a nuanced overview of every aspect of the drug trade and the complex morality of its participants.

    • Great Series

      This was one of HBO's best shows. The characters are very real. It's funny, it's sad. You won't watch this series without feeling something. It's also violent and there is a lot of language that isn't for everyone. If you can handle that, then watch this series.

    • One of the best t.v. series ever!!!

      I began watching The Wire in its fourth season. From then on I have been hooked. I went to Overstock and purchased the first three seasons immediately. Eventhough the show contains lots of violence, adult language, drugs, etc., it gives people a more indepth look on what goes on in the inner cities of america. Thansks Overstock for providing me with these products. Thanks!!

    • Great Start to a Legendary Series

      The Wire is a brilliant series and the DVD collection is a great way to share it with the unindoctrinated.
