    "The Wire is a fictional show that depicts the impoverished and gritty streets of Baltimore. This is by far the best crime drama ever on TV. It follows the lives of addicts, cops, drug dealers, and the drug kingpins who all roam the same streets and are forced to confront one another on a daily basis. This show provides a lively commentary on how the drug trade and the black market are both a source of violence and disease revolving around failed social-welfare and economic policies that are a blight to the inhabitants of ghettos everywhere. The show illustrates how similar they are to each other and the damage they all cause to their communities and families. All of the seasons of The Wire includes familiar and new characters who are all trying to etch an existence on the uncertain and dangerous streets of Baltimore."

    "Background in Baltimore, Maryland. The screenplay was written by the scriptwriter, who is also the cop and former David Simon correspondent. The movie is shown on cable channel HBO. In each season of "The Wire," the film will focus on exploiting the various aspects that occur in the city of Baltimore. The war on drugs in Baltimore is multidimensional through the eyes of both opium dealers and police forces. "The Wire" debuted at the time of the infamous American wrestling tour in a tense period, the film revolving around her own element and violence."

    "This HBO series The Wire is like the epitome of cop dramas due to the fact that is not just about cops but it also showed the inner workings of a police department. This is like a show that is near to reality that you will ever see. And it will be a long time before another one does it or surpass what a great show it was. "

HBO has set the bar very high for quite a long time now with incredible original series, so to say The Wire is one of it not HBOs best is really saying something. I would looking for a binge worthy show and found one of the best of all time. Outstanding."

    "This is an entertaining show, but it's not child friendly at all! I was hoping for a kind of bleak show to show my children so that I can teach them the harsh reality of the world, but this is a little to extreme. If they were teenagers, however, it would be more appropriate."

    "The Wire is a HBO show that covers drug sales and use in Baltimore. If you like this sort of show, it is well reviewed and talked about. It is not my kind of show so I would never say it fits the topic but it is a matter of personal taste."
