Corruption is rife throughout The Wire: The Complete Third Season, which picks up the further adventures of the Baltimore Major Crimes Unit as they continue to wage war on drugs. Only as this is The Wire, that’s just the beginnings of their problems. Once again, the show that’s rightly being acclaimed as one of America’s finest and most intelligent dramas covers the story from all areas. There’s the investigating cops on one hand, their targets on the other, and the small matter of heavy political influence both with the Police Department itself, and from the Mayor’s Office too.

Cleverly sowing the seeds for the series that’ll follow, while lacing the narrative with a wealth of challenging ideas to deal with there and then, season three isn’t perhaps the finest of The Wire to date, but it sure does run things close. From its willingness to explore a solution of tolerance to the problem in hand, through to the political ambitions of one man determined to make a name for himself, and the small matter of a drugs operation riddled with in-fighting, it’s compelling drama.

It’s also unequalled in recent times, courtesy of its outstanding writing, measured performances and willingness to take some bold gambles. Put bluntly, The Wire: The Complete Third Season is a quite brilliant piece of television drama, and easily rewards a purchase. --Simon Brew
