A New Case Begins.
The most unvarnished, uncompromising and realistic police drama ever returns for another hard hitting season.

McNulty has been demoted to harbor patrol, Daniels is in the police archive dungeon, Prez is chafing in the suburbs and Gregs is stuck behind a desk. Meanwhile, on the docks of the Baltimore harbor, the rank and file scrounge for work and the union bosses take illegitimate measures to reinvigorate business, but a horrific discovery is about to blow the whole port inside out. While the detail is on ice, a new case begins...

This five disc collection includes all 12 episodes from The Complete Second Season of The Wire!

"...so magnificently executed, so fascinating in its evolution, so frequently bracingly profound that it does no less than elevate the medium of television itself.  Movieline's Hollywood Life
"...the best show on television, period.  Tim Goodman, San Francisco Chronicle
"As challenging social commentary, compelling character study and magnificently detailed drama, The Wire is peerless.  Ultimate DVD
"Four stars. Brilliant.  USA Today

Editor's Note
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 around 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. 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. The second season is included here in its entirety.
