Sheer Brilliance!By a customer from London , 18 Sep 2008
[Highly rated reviewer]If you are not already an addict, you can believe the hype. The Wire is simply the best TV series ever made. It even trumps other HBO greats such as the Sopranos and Deadwood.
You get believable and morally complex characters, wonderful acting and direction, an epic story arc, superb writing, political and social issues (with no PC-ness), and even a cool soundtrack.
The good news is that you need to start with the First Season. The bad news is that you may not get out of the house for a couple of months.

Superb ending to the finaleBy a customer from Manchester , 19 Mar 2010The Wire, since season 1, has been simply superb. I never thought I'd like it but the depth of the characters and the way it follows around the lives of those you grow to love throughout the series is just very special. McNulty features in the major story and is trying to make a difference in his own special way. If you enjoy any other HBO series then you will love this. Its worth getting into.
The Wire -Season 5By a customer from Reading , 04 Mar 2010What a finale - I loved this show and every season was as good as the last. Gutted when certain characters left the show but that only added to the realism. I am just disappointed they are not making anymore - easily the best tv ever.
take a week off and watch thisBy ggg (19 reviews) from Birmingham , 06 Feb 2010Take a full week off work, close the curtains and unplug the phone then watch the best series that you will ever watch until your eyes bleed. Just fantastic. If you liked the Sopranos HBO have just topped themselves. Utterly brilliant.

ThE Wire - Not as good as it getsBy ThomasTHEMANBabayode (7 reviews) from Hayes , 02 Dec 2009While the Wire was and still is acclaimed by many to be very original and being the best written crime programme, on reflection, it is not that good.
One needs to look at it with a different light when one sees Crime Story, a programme written several decades ago.
There are several bits that a similar to the Wire in Crime Story.
More so, towards the end of the Wire, it seems that the original writers got tried of writing the story and gave it a half baked ending.
