Product Overview

On the drug-infested streets of West Baltimore, there are good guys and there are bad guys. Sometimes you need more than a badge to tell them apart.

From David Simon, creator and co-writer of HBO's triple Emmy winning mini-series The Corner, this unvarnished, highly realistic HBO series follows a single sprawling drug and murder investigation in Baltimore. Told from the point of view of both the police and their targets, the series captures a universe of subterfuge and surveillance, where easy distinctions between good and evil, and crime and punishment, are challenged at every turn.

This five disc collection includes all 13 episodes from The Complete First Season of The Wire!

Quotes
Brian Lowry, Variety ...one of the most demanding and thought-provoking series ever to grace television.
Elizabeth Skipper, DVD Verdict ...I loved every minute of The Wire...
Entertainment Weekly One would be hard-pressed to find another series that blends the personal and the political in such a kinetic yet thoughtful way.
Movieline's Hollywood Life ...so magnificently executed, so fascinating in its evolution, so frequently bracingly profound that it does no less than elevate the medium of television itself.
Tim Goodman, San Francisco Chronicle ...the best show on television, period.
Ultimate DVD As challenging social commentary, compelling character study and magnificently detailed drama, The Wire is peerless.
USA Today Four stars. Brilliant.
