Great Series, But Bad Copies are Being Sold

by Tim on 1/5/2012

The Wire is one of the best series to ever appear on television. However, some of the products being sold have horrible video quality, as if they were poor bootlegs. I notified the seller, Studio 7, who sent me another bad copy. They then promised me a full refund, but never followed through. I'm now out $100 with two bad sets of DVDs. DO NOT BUY THIS! Read More

Editors Note
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. Focused on the drug culture of inner-city Baltimore, the series' ultra-realistic storyline unfolds from the points of view of the criminals lording the streets, the police officers determined to bring them down, and occasionally the politicians who often obstruct the process. Created by writer David Simon (THE CORNER, HOMICIDE: LIFE ON THE STREET), THE WIRE's multifaceted approach offers a profoundly humane and wonderfully nuanced view of every aspect of the drug trade and the complex morality of its participants. This collection presents all five seasons of the critically acclaimed series that casts its penetrating gaze at the the streets, the waterfront, city hall, and beyond.

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.
