5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding!, 1 Feb. 2007
Finally! After trolling through different sites looking for any news on series 2, Its fantastic to know It is actually gettting released! This programme is without doubt a masterpiece of television in my opinion and is criminally overlooked. I would rate it up there with the likes of curb, seinfeld and the office.

5.0 out of 5 stars simply astonishing!, 26 July 2005
The second series of the wire does what no other programme can do, and that is somehow manage to be better than the first series of the wire.
I had to get it off amazon.com months ago and have to say it is the most powerfull engaging television that I have watched. It carries on with the same characters as last time, the opposing forces of Mcnulty and Barksdale, cops and dealers, and adds a whole new layer of characters as we have a look at the baltimore docks and the stevedores, working class americans making horrible decisions to fight for the survival of their trade. It rises above cliches of cops and bad guys effortlessly and looks at human bengs struggling with what America and its intstitutions can offer them and how to survive the grim situation of poverty and desperation. It can be heartbreaking and at times blackly comic and left me in awe at such a fantastic achievment.
