The Wire: The Complete Series (24 Disc Boxset)    (DVD)

Candid and intense, The Wire has been hailed as one of the great achievements in television artistry by the San Francisco Chronicle. Viewed from the perspective of the principal characters, the police and their targets, The Wire captures a world where easy distinctions between good and evil and crime and punishment are challenged at every turn.

The series first season concentrated on the often-futile efforts of police to infiltrate a West Baltimore drug ring. Seasons two and three introduced new story lines as the drug investigation escalated, adding the pressures on the working class and the citys political leadership to the citys mounting problems. Season four explored the public school system against the backdrop of a new drug empire and mayor, while the fifth and final season centred on the media's role in addressing or failing to address what was really going on in the city.

And much more!

In a city that can no longer even recognise its problems, much less begin to solve them, police detectives attempt to bring in one last, worthy case against a violent crew of narcotics traffickers. And when bureaucratic poverty and infighting threatens that case, one detective will risk everything, creating a fraud that will eventually entangle the citys newspaper, which is weakened by declines in circulation and advertising. With journalism itself so vulnerable and desperate, an unscrupulous, ambitious reporter will ride the story wherever it goes or wherever he wants it to go. From the streets to the port to the schools and the halls of government, The Wire has chronicled the tribulations of a post-industrial American city. Now, for the first time the entire collection is available in a 24-disc boxset.
