I am absolutely CRAZY about this show on HBO. In fact, I had canceled HBO and ordered it again for three months just so I can watch "The Wire."
The show is a cop drama with a pace like that of a novel. Absolutely NOTHING is resolved in thirty minutes. You have to watch the whole season to appreciate all the nuances. "The Wire" was created by David Simon, the former police reporter of the Sun in Baltimore. Anyone who has ever covered the cop beat as a reporter can appreciate this series.
