Item Description


One of television’s most critically acclaimed programs, the Peabody Award-winning drama series The Wire continually challenged viewers with a ‘cop show’ unlike anything else that was on the air.

The First Season concentrated on the often-futile efforts of police to infiltrate a West Baltimore drug ring headed by Avon Barksdale and his lieutenant, Stringer Bell.  In Seasons Two and Three, as the investigation escalated, new storylines involving pressures on the working class and the city’s political leadership were introduced.  Season Four focused on the stories of several young boys in the public school system, struggling with problems at home and the lure of the corner  --  set against the rise of a new drug empire in West Baltimore and a new Mayor in City Hall. 

Season Five?   Why spoil the conclusion of this riveting drama?!
