Editor's NoteUnlike 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.

Customer Reviews of Wire-Complete Series
Great Series, But Bad Copies are Being Sold1/5/2012
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!
