Is there life after "The Wire"?,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Wire: Complete HBO Season 1-5 [DVD] (DVD)
Simply stunning. The best drama I've seen ever. The authentic dialogue, the intricate plot, the characters, the acting - everything is superb. It is totally convincing in its portrayal of the complex inter-relationship (and similarities) between drug slingers, cops, politicians and the media.
It will stand many many viewings as it is easy to miss so much the first time round. Absolutely addictive, the trouble is going back to watch other TV - even the best TV now seems predictable, stale and cliche'd in comparison.
