  • Wire is amazing, but buy the remastered version
    Verified Purchase

    Since I bought this, they have remasted The Wire. Buy that version, not this one- the resolution and sound on this older release is really bad- virtually unwatchable on today's TVs- we've become accustomed to a much higher standard. Having said that, do buy The Wire!! Even though TV programming has improved dramatically since it was made, it is still in my top 3 TV shows of all time. Having watched all the seasons online, going back to the beginning you pick up things that you missed the first time that shape the whole arc of the show. My husband who prefers comedy, found it depressing and too hard to understand the Baltimore dialect, but I found it absolutely riveting. The writing and acting is in a class of its own.

  • Great Series
    Verified Purchase

    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!!!
    Verified Purchase

    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
    Verified Purchase

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

  • Best HBO series yet

    My wife and I have seen most of the HBO series and this is our favorite yet. Season 2 and beyond have only improved. Great character development.

  • The best show in television, hands down!!!
    Verified Purchase

    Buy this dvd set and one episode is all it will take. Nothing comes close. Better than 24 by a long shot.

  • You have to see this series! I just got hooked on it in Season 3, so I'm buying Season 1 + 2. It's worth it, plus you can resell it used for close to what you paid for it! It's great!! You'll be hooked.
