Marketing Description With the fall of Barksdale and the ascent of young Marlo Stanfield as West Baltimore's drug king, the detail continues to "follow the money" up the political ladder in the midst of a mayoral election that pits the black incumbent, Clarence Royce, against an ambitious white councilman, Tommy Carcetti. The theme of urban education is explored through four new characters- Michael Lee, Namond Brice, Randy Wagstaff and "Dukie" Weems as they traverse adolescence in the stunted, drug-saturated streets of West Baltimore. The world that awaits these boys and the American commitment to equal opportunity are depicted brilliantly in the edgy, all too realistic Season 4 of The Wire.
|No Corner Left Behind.
With the fall of the Barksdale empire, and the ascent of a new young drug king in Baltimore, McNulty, Bunk and the rest of the detail continue to "follow the money" up the political ladder amidst a hotly contested mayoral campaign. Prez witnesses first-hand the role of inner-city education in the formation of youth as four students, Michael, Namond, Randy and Dukie, face dangerous decisions and adolescent angst in a city rife with the temptations of crime and easy money. The explosive fourth season of The Wire continues to blur the lines between good and evil, and incite the fires of urban unrest.

This four disc collection includes all 13 episodes from The Complete Fourth Season of The Wire!

"...one of the most demanding and thought-provoking series ever to grace television.  Brian Lowry, Variety
"One would be hard-pressed to find another series that blends the personal and the political in such a kinetic yet thoughtful way.  Entertainment Weekly
"...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
"As challenging social commentary, compelling character study and magnificently detailed drama, The Wire is peerless.  Ultimate DVD

Editor's Note
Acclaimed HBO series THE WIRE centers on the drug culture of inner-city Baltimore. The series' storyline unfolds from the viewpoints of both the criminals lording the streets and the police officers determined to bring them down. In the show's fourth season, which is included here in its entirety, four new characters--Dukie Weems, Randy Wagstaff, Michael Lee, and Namond Brice--are introduced to the gritty television drama. The plot in the fourth season mostly focuses on the eighth graders who try to survive the drug-laden streets of West Baltimore as the city's mayoral race enters its final stages. Clarence Royce, the black candidate, has a colossal lead over white councilman Tommy Carcetti, while Marlo Stanfield continues his ascension as Baltimore's new drug baron.

Professional Reviews

Total Film
5 stars out of 5 -- "THE WIRE's epic police drama continues to evolve with a scope, richness, complexity and ambition unrivalled by anything on the small screen." 04/01/2008 p.157

Empire
5 stars out of 5 -- "[It's the] microscopic attention to detail, so perfectly executed, that raises it above every other cop show on television." 04/01/2008 p.158-159

Ultimate DVD
5 stars out of 5 -- "Watch and learn indeed, this season is rightly an uncomfortable and sometimes tragic education." 04/01/2008 p.102

Variety 10 of 10
When television history is written, little else will rival "The Wire," a series of such extraordinary depth and ambition that it is, perhaps inevitably, savored only by an appreciative few. Layering each season upon the previous ones, creator David Simon conveys the decaying infrastructure of his hometown Baltimore in searing and sobering fashion -- constructing a show that's surely as impenetrable to the uninitiated as it is intoxicating to the faithful...Like HBO's "Deadwood," "The Wire" features a dizzying assortment of characters, almost all of them outstanding. This year's additions include a quartet of urban middle-school kids caught in the perilous years when they are being tempted to join in a life of crime and drugs -- by far the most inviting outlet, if not escape, available to them...Whatever its commercial fate, however, "The Wire" has secured its place as one of the most demanding and thought-provoking series ever to grace television. For HBO, that is surely worth something. It's only too bad all the superlatives hurled its way can't readily be transformed into viewers. - Brian Lowry
