5.0 out of 5 stars Addictive, 1 May 2009
This review is from: The Wire: Complete HBO Season 5 [DVD] (DVD)
The Wire deals with the complexity of life very well. In The Wire not all Policemen are good, not all Drug dealers are bad and it details very cleverly how people with good intentions are forced to do the wrong things to acheive the right goals.

In Series 5 the Policeman antihero McNulty is forced to take matters in to his own hands to get at Marlow Stansfield and his crew of drug dealers and murderers. Needless to say McNulty ends up in deep do do.

Before I bought the Wire I wanted to know if it was anygood. The short answear is Yes. However, if you are easily offended by bad language, drugs, guns, homosexuality, drinking, fighting and prostitution then it's not for you. Also if you always want to see the bad guy get put away at the end then your going to be disappointed! The acting throughout is superb especially if you take in to account that a couple of the lead actors are actually British and not from Baltimore.

I watched some series of the Wire on FX. It's better to watch it on DVD so you don't have to wait through the adverts, it makes more sense watching it on DVD and the episodes are still 1 hour long without the adverts.
