Another Great Season, 12 Feb 2007
Another season of police drama intertwined with a complex and gritty examination of the political workings of grand old Baltimore. As with previous seasons, The Wire's writers combine urban documentary and crime drama to give us a fix of gritty action and Civics 101. The complex plots are complimented by continually twisting portraits of the main characters--none of whom are portrayed in a binary light of good and evil. In an America where the current popular debate is so often given over to reductivist thinking and simple platitudes, this show is great fodder for the thinking couch potato.
