.The Wire is an American television drama series set and produced in Baltimore, Maryland.^ The Television Academy announced the top ten vote getters for the outstanding drama series and outstanding comedy series categories.

^ Marking a first for the Emmys, the Academy of Television and Sciences has just released the Top 10 Finalists in each of this year s Outstanding Comedy and Drama series categories.

.Created, produced, and primarily written by author and former police reporter David Simon, the series was broadcast by the premium cable network HBO in the United States.^ Emmy watchers take note: this could be a big year for non-HBO cable series.

^ Charter Communications, the fourth-largest cable operator in the United States, announced yesterday that it has backed off a plan to monitor customers' Internet transmissions.

^ Fueled by this year's presidential race, cable news channels now command a leading 58% share to broadcast network news programs' 42% share.

.The Wire premiered on June 2, 2002 (see 2002 in television) and ended on March 9, 2008. The five seasons comprise 60 episodes.^ Post by padz on Feb 20, 2008, 4:34pm Just started with second season of The Wire and it is just as brilliant as the first.

^ Post by padz on Nov 3, 2008, 9:42am I watched Futurama last night The Beast With A Billion Backs and then some of Wire season 4.

^ Post by padz on Aug 13, 2008, 7:25pm Finished The Wire Season 3 .

Each season of The Wire focuses on a different facet of the city of Baltimore. .They are, in order: the illegal drug trade, the port system, the city government and bureaucracy, the school system, and the print news media.^ A new digital colour printing system from Konica Minolta Business Solutions has won the award for the best productivity hardware at the Macworld Awards.

.The large cast consists mainly of character actors who are little known for their other roles.^ I did like the character of Jack Harkness quite a bit in Doctor Who.....he is a little too forced mysterious in this one.

.Simon has said that despite its presentation as a crime drama, the show is "really about the American city, and about how we live together.^ They already have a "previously on Heroes" recap, then they go and show about 10 minutes of last weeks show, really annoying.

^ Not talking about how Rorschach decided to fight crime, not saying how her got his 'face', and changing that happened at the kidnappers house.

It's about how institutions have an effect on individuals, and how whether you're a cop, a longshoreman, a drug dealer, a politician, a judge or a lawyer, you are ultimately compromised and must contend with whatever institution you've committed to."[1]
Despite never seeing a large commercial success or winning major television awards, The Wire has been described by critics as the greatest television series ever made.[2][3][4][5][6][7] The show is recognized for its realistic portrayal of urban life, its literary ambitions, and its uncommonly deep exploration of sociopolitical themes.

Contents

Production

Conception

David Simon, creator of The Wire
Simon has stated that he originally set out to create a police drama loosely based on the experiences of his writing partner Ed Burns, a former homicide detective. Burns, when working on protracted investigations of violent drug dealers using surveillance technology, had often been frustrated by the bureaucracy of the Baltimore police department; Simon saw similarities with his own ordeals as a police reporter for The Baltimore Sun.
Simon chose to set the show in Baltimore because of his intimate familiarity with the city. He approached the mayor of Baltimore with the message that he wanted to give a bleak portrayal of certain aspects of the city and was welcomed to work there again. .During his time as a writer and producer for the NBC program Homicide: Life on the Street, based on his book Homicide: A Year on the Killing Streets, Simon had come into conflict with network executives who were displeased by the show's pessimism.^ It's an old NBC program from the same Writer/Producer.

^ The other day I saw a reality show about people who cut hair, and no matter what time I am channel surfing,Tori Spelling's show seems to be on.

^ It's time we find out, because the network is taking a risk in adapting the Argentinian telenovela Lalola into a ne...

Simon wanted to avoid a repeat of these conflicts. He chose to take The Wire to HBO because of their existing working relationship from the 2000 miniseries The Corner. .Owing to its reputation for exploring new areas, HBO was initially doubtful about including a police drama in its lineup, but eventually agreed to produce the pilot episode.^ DMAH_1.jpg) The Rebel - New Vietnamese period drama about colonialization.

[8][9] .Simon hoped that the show would change the opinions of some viewers but said that it was unlikely to have an impact on the issues it portrays.^ The Bosoms; the Georgian dresses which push those said objects up (and usually ripped off at some point in the show).

[8]

Casting

.The casting of the show has been praised for avoiding big-name stars and providing character actors who appear natural in their roles.^ A show about a doctor who is questioning gender roles and maybe gender itself, specifically his own.

^ Also is that black Arimathea the same shoddy actor who appeared in Auf Weidersain pet and Doctor Who?

[10] The looks of the cast as a whole have been described as defying TV expectations by presenting a true range of humanity on screen.[11]
The initial cast was assembled through a process of auditions and readings. Lance Reddick received the role of Cedric Daniels after auditioning for several other parts.[12] Michael K. Williams got the part of Omar Little after only a single audition.[13]
Several prominent real-life Baltimore figures, including former Maryland Governor Robert L. Ehrlich Jr., Rev. Frank M. Reid III, former police chief, convicted felon, radio personality Ed Norris, Virginia Delegate Rob Bell, and former mayor Kurt Schmoke have appeared in minor roles despite not being professional actors.[14] "Little Melvin" Williams, a Baltimore drug lord arrested in the 1980s by an investigation that Ed Burns had been part of, had a recurring role as a deacon beginning in the third season. Jay Landsman, a longtime police officer who inspired the character of the same name,[15] played Lieutenant Dennis Mello.[16] .Baltimore police commander Gary D'Addario served as the series technical advisor for the first two seasons[17][18] and has a recurring role as prosecutor Gary DiPasquale.^ Post by mikey on Nov 17, 2007, 3:25pm House M.D. Season Two, Disc One and Disc Two.

^ Post by jesse on Jun 17, 2005, 7:53am Season Two, Disc 4, of Six Feet Under.

^ Post by yodasnoog on Dec 5, 2007, 12:46pm Made my way through the first two seasons of Scrubs over the past few days, excellent.

[19] Simon shadowed D'Addario's shift when researching his book Homicide: A Year on the Killing Streets and both D'Addario and Landsman are subjects of the book.[20]
.More than a dozen cast members previously appeared on HBO's first hour long drama: Oz.^ Jericho Ads Appear More Often On TV Than Jericho .

.J.D. Williams, Seth Gilliam, Lance Reddick, and Reg E. Cathey were featured in very prominent roles in Oz, while a number of other notable stars of The Wire, including Wood Harris, Frankie Faison, John Doman, Clarke Peters, Domenick Lombardozzi, Michael Hyatt and Method Man appeared in at least one episode of Oz.^ Post by padz on Jan 14, 2007, 10:42pm Prison Break Season One Episodes 1 - 4 This is really good stuff, very enjoyable.

^ The Star Wars episode BLUE HARVEST, its really good and jampacked with brilliant one liners and swipes at new hope.

^ Post by padz on Jul 6, 2007, 3:11pm Freddy's Nightmares had all the stars man Brad Pitt among others haha.

.[21] Cast members Erik Dellums, Peter Gerety, Clark Johnson, Toni Lewis and Callie Thorne also appeared on Homicide: Life on the Street; Lewis appeared on Oz as well.^ Padz, If you Like The Wire then check out Homicide: Life On The Street.

[22][23][24][25][26]

Crew

Alongside Simon, the show's creator, head writer, show runner and executive producer, much of the creative team behind The Wire are alumni of Homicide and Emmy-winning miniseries The Corner. .The Corner veteran, Robert F. Colesberry, was executive producer for the first two seasons and directed the season 2 finale before dying from complications from heart surgery in 2004. He is credited by the rest of the creative team as having a large creative role for a producer, and Simon credits him for achieving the show's realistic visual feel.^ On the season finale of FARMER WANTS A WIFE farmer Matt Neustadt made his final decision, choosing between two city girls to pick his choice for a wife.

^ Post by chris on Sept 23, 2006, 10:15am I watched the final episode of season two of "Grey's Anatomy" the other night.

^ June 27, 2008 - The first two-hour semi-final episode of Last Comic Standing aired Thursday night, and like every Thursday night, I'm left feeling frustrated and annoyed.

[1] He also had a small recurring role as Detective Ray Cole.[27] Colesberry's wife Karen L. Thorson joined him on the production staff.[17] A third producer on The Corner Nina Kostroff Noble also stayed with the production staff for The Wire rounding out the initial four-person team.[17] Following Colesberry's death she became the show's second executive producer alongside Simon.[28]
.Stories for the show were often co-written by Ed Burns, a former Baltimore homicide detective and public school teacher who had worked with Simon on other projects including The Corner.^ FROM the volunteer who works in the community centre to improve the lives of those around them to the teacher who goes the extra mile to make a child s day.

^ The other day I saw a reality show about people who cut hair, and no matter what time I am channel surfing,Tori Spelling's show seems to be on.

Burns also became a producer on The Wire in the show's fourth season.[29] Other writers for The Wire include three acclaimed crime fiction writers from outside of Baltimore: George P. Pelecanos from Washington, Richard Price from the Bronx and Dennis Lehane from Boston.[30] Reviewers drew comparisons between Price's works (particularly Clockers) and The Wire even before he joined.[31] In addition to writing, Pelecanos served as a producer for the third season.[32] Pelecanos has commented that he was attracted to the project because of the opportunity to work with Simon.[32] Staff writer Rafael Alvarez penned several episodes' scripts, as well as the series guidebook The Wire: Truth Be Told. Alvarez is a colleague of Simon's from The Sun and a Baltimore native with working experience in the port area.[33] .Another city native and independent filmmaker, Joy Lusco Kecken, also wrote for the show in each of its first three seasons.^ Chris Noth Mr. Big in the "Sex and the City" TV show and movie is leaving after three seasons, a series spokeswoman said Thursday.

[34] Baltimore Sun writer and political journalist William F. Zorzi joined the writing staff in the third season and brought a wealth of experience to the show's examination of Baltimore politics.[33]
Playwright and television writer/producer Eric Overmyer joined the crew of The Wire in the show's fourth season as a consulting producer and writer.[29] He had also previously worked on Homicide. .Overmyer was brought into the full-time production staff to replace Pelecanos who scaled back his involvement to concentrate on his next book and worked on the fourth season solely as a writer.^ Excellent production, faithful to the book, my only complaint is the shaky camera work: TV is full of this these days.

^ I think I'll steal it when I go back next time...

^ PMAcademy Award- and Emmy Award-nominated actor Jeff Goldblum is joining the cast of USA Network s Law & Order: Criminal Intent .

[29]
Directors include Homicide alumnus Clark Johnson,[36] who directed several acclaimed episodes of The Shield,[37]; and Tim Van Patten, an Emmy winner who has worked on every season of The Sopranos. The directing has been praised for its uncomplicated and subtle style.[10] Following the death of Colesberry, director Joe Chappelle joined the production staff as a co-executive producer and continued to regularly direct episodes.[38]

Episode structure

When broadcast on HBO and on some international networks, the episodes are preceded by a recap of events that have a bearing upon the upcoming narrative, using clips from previous episodes. Each episode begins with a cold open that seldom contains a dramatic juncture. The screen then fades to black while the intro music fades in. .The show's opening title sequence then plays; a series of shots, mainly close-ups, concerning the show's subject matter that changes from season to season, separated by fast cutting (a technique rarely used in the show itself).^ This show is now up to season 3!

^ The other day I saw a reality show about people who cut hair, and no matter what time I am channel surfing,Tori Spelling's show seems to be on.

^ Chris Noth Mr. Big in the "Sex and the City" TV show and movie is leaving after three seasons, a series spokeswoman said Thursday.

The opening credits are superimposed on the sequence, and consist only of actors' names without identifying which actors play which roles. In addition, actors' faces are rarely seen in the title sequence. At the end of the sequence, a quotation is shown on-screen that is spoken by a character during the episode. .The two exceptions were the fourth season's finale which uses words written on boarded up vacant homes attributed to "Baltimore, traditional" and the series finale, which started with a quote from H.L. Mencken that is shown on a wall at The Baltimore Sun in one scene, neither quote being spoken by a character.^ Bring on Season 5, the last series..I dont want it to end From Season finale 'Final Grades' MAJOR SPOILERS .

^ One of my favourite scenes from the best episode of the series IMO...

^ Post by padz on Apr 7, 2007, 11:26am Season finale of Carnivale series 2 Its fucking amazing!

Progressive story arcs often unfold in different locations at the same time. Episodes rarely end with a cliffhanger, and normally close with a fade to black and the closing music fading in.

Music

The Wire primarily utilizes source cues rather than overlaying songs on the soundtrack, or employing a score. .Source cues constitute music that emanates from an element within the scene, like a jukebox or car radio.^ The sex scene as hilarious, just like in the book, and it was scenes like that that made me appreciate Snyder's dedication to the source material.
  • Print Page - So what movies/t.v. are you watching? 19 September 2009 19:20 UTC entervoid.com [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

.This practice is rarely but occasionally breached, notably for the end of season montages and occasionally with a brief overlap of the closing theme and the final shot.^ Bring on Season 5, the last series..I dont want it to end From Season finale 'Final Grades' MAJOR SPOILERS .

[39]
The opening theme is "Way Down in the Hole", a gospel- and blues-inspired song originally written by Tom Waits for his 1987 album Franks Wild Years. Each season uses a different recording of it against a different opening sequence, with the theme being performed, in order, by the Blind Boys of Alabama, Waits himself, the Neville Brothers, "DoMaJe" and Steve Earle. Season four's version of "Way Down in the Hole" was arranged and recorded specifically for the show, and is performed by five Baltimore teenagers: Ivan Ashford, Markel Steele, Cameron Brown, Tariq Al-Sabir, and Avery Bargasse.[40] .Earle, who performed the fifth season's version, is also a member of the cast, playing the recovering drug addict Walon.^ I've just heard one cast member will be a new regular in LOST season 4.

[41] The closing theme is "The Fall", composed by Blake Leyh, who is also the show's music supervisor.
.During season finales, a song is played before the closing scene in a montage showing the major characters' lives continuing in the aftermath of the narrative.^ Bring on Season 5, the last series..I dont want it to end From Season finale 'Final Grades' MAJOR SPOILERS .

^ I managed to spoil a major shock in PB Season 4 for myself by reading a character profile.

^ Hurts " Two of the show's (formerly) least interesting characters have been given a real boost this season.

The first season montage is played over "Step by Step" by Jesse Winchester, the second "Feel Alright" by Steve Earle, the third "Fast Train" written by Van Morrison and performed by Solomon Burke, the fourth "I Walk on Gilded Splinters" written by Dr. John and performed by Paul Weller, and the fifth uses an extended version of "Way Down In The Hole" by the Blind Boys of Alabama, the same version of the song used as the opening theme for the first season. While the songs reflect the mood of the sequence, their lyrics are usually only loosely tied to the visual shots. In the commentary track to episode 37, "Mission Accomplished", executive producer David Simon said: "I hate it when somebody purposely tries to have the lyrics match the visual. It brutalizes the visual in a way to have the lyrics dead on point. ... Yet at the same time it can't be totally off point. .It has to glance at what you're trying to say."^ Unless this show features Ingrid Pitt in her prime getting naked on a weekly basis it can't be nearly as good as you're saying it is.

[31]
.Two soundtrack albums, called The Wire: And All the Pieces Matter -- Five Years of Music from The Wire and Beyond Hamsterdam, were released on January 8, 2008 on Nonesuch Records.^ Post by ady1971 on Oct 14, 2007, 9:46am Channel 5 changed it's name to 'Five' many years ago, but everyone still calls it 'Channel 5'.

[42] The former features music from all five seasons of the series and the latter includes local Baltimore artists exclusively.[42]

Themes

Realism

The writers strive to create a realistic vision of an American city based on their own experiences. Central to this aim is the creation of truthful characters. Simon has stated that most of them are composites of real-life Baltimore figures.[43][44] .The show often casts non-professional actors in minor roles, distinguishing itself from other television series by showing the "faces and voices of the real city" it depicts.^ They get stale quickly like X factor and all these other wanky reality tv shows!

[45] The writing also uses contemporary slang to enhance the immersive viewing experience.[45]
In distinguishing the police characters from other television detectives, Simon makes the point that even the best police of The Wire are motivated not by a desire to protect and serve, but by the intellectual vanity of believing they are smarter than the criminals they are chasing. .However, while many of the police do exhibit altruistic qualities, including the show's main character, Jimmy McNulty, many officers portrayed on the show are incompetent, brutal, self-aggrandizing, or hamstrung by bureaucracy and politics.^ Every time I watch that show I couldn't help but think of Elio as the main character .
  • Print Page - So what movies/t.v. are you watching? 19 September 2009 19:20 UTC entervoid.com [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

The criminals are not always motivated by profit or a desire to harm others; many are trapped in their existence and all have human qualities. Even so, The Wire does not minimize or gloss over the horrific effects of their actions.[1]
The show is realistic in depicting the processes of both police work and criminal activity. Many of the plot points were based on the experiences of Simon and Burns. .There have even been reports of real-life criminals watching the show to learn how to counter police investigation techniques.^ I never thought I'd be watching a show of this nature ever again because it pissed me off, but theres something about this show that brought me into it.

[46][47] The fifth season portrays a working newsroom and has been hailed as the most realistic portrayal of the media in film and television.[48]
.In December 2006, The Washington Post carried an article in which local African-American students stated that the show had "hit a nerve" with the black community, and that they themselves knew real-life counterparts of many of the characters.^ Post by yodasnoog on Jan 14, 2006, 12:03pm My Name Is Earl - It's excellent to have a weekly dose of Jason Lee on UK TV. Really good, funny show.

^ Post by mikey on Jun 14, 2006, 2:51am I watched the first three episodes of Homocide: Life on the Streets .

^ Post by yodasnoog on Apr 25, 2006, 2:07pm "The Real Goodfella" - Great documentary about Henry Hill on channel 4 last night.

The article expressed great sadness at the toll drugs and violence are taking on the black community.[49]

Institutional dysfunction

.Simon has identified the organizations featured in the show — the Baltimore Police Department, City Hall, the Baltimore Public School System, the Barksdale drug trafficking operation, The Baltimore Sun, and the stevedores' union — as comparable institutions.^ This week's mouthwatering show features a world exclusive clip of Keira Knightley singing in new film The Edge of Love plus Sex and The City news and clips.

.All are dysfunctional in some way, and the characters are typically betrayed by the institutions that they accept in their lives.^ Also, like I said before, you can get it through NetFlix; they let you watch some movies on their site, so you might be able to see it that way.
  • Print Page - So what movies/t.v. are you watching? 19 September 2009 19:20 UTC entervoid.com [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

^ It just reeks of 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' all the way down to some of the music sounding fucking similar.

[1] There is also a sentiment echoed by a detective in "Narcotics"—"Shit rolls downhill"—which describes how superiors, especially in the higher tiers of the police department in the series, will attempt to use subordinates as scapegoats for any major scandals. Simon described the show as "cynical about [its] institutions"[47] while taking a humanistic approach toward its characters.[47] A central theme developed throughout the show is the struggle between individual desires and subordination to the group's goals. Whether it is Officer Jimmy McNulty using all his cards to pursue a high-profile case despite resistance from his own department, or gang member D'Angelo Barksdale accepting 20 years in prison contrary to his strong desire to turn in his uncle Avon and take a plea, this type of conflict is pervasive in all aspects of the show.

Surveillance

.Central to the structure and plot of the show is the use of electronic surveillance and wiretap technologies by the police—hence the title The Wire. Salon.com described the title as a metaphor for the viewer's experience: the wiretaps provide the police with access to a secret world, just as the show does for the viewer.^ The plot i basic and it's been used like a million times, but it's done well and the movie is just so damn pretty.

  • Print Page - So what movies/t.v. are you watching? 19 September 2009 19:20 UTC entervoid.com [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

[30] Simon has discussed the use of camera shots of surveillance equipment, or shots that appear to be taken from the equipment itself, to emphasize the volume of surveillance in modern life and the characters' needs to sift through this information.[1]

Visual novel

.Many important events occur off-camera and there is no artificial exposition in the form of voice-over or flashbacks, with the sole exception of one flashback at the end of the pilot episode, and even this brief use of the flashback technique is actually replaying a momentary footage clip from earlier in the same episode.^ Post by padz on Apr 21, 2005, 2:03am Twin Peaks Pilot to episode 7 - all of season one Fantastic, nothing else like it!

Thus, the viewer needs to follow every conversation closely in order to understand who's who and what's going on. Salon.com has described the show as novelistic in structure, with a greater depth of writing and plotting than other crime shows.[30] .Each season of The Wire consists of 10–13 full-hour episodes, which form a single narrative.^ Post by padz on Aug 13, 2008, 7:25pm Finished The Wire Season 3 .

Simon chose this structure with an eye towards long story arcs that draw a viewer in and then result in a more satisfying payoff. .He uses the metaphor of a visual novel in several interviews,[8][50] describing each episode as a chapter, and has also commented that this allows a fuller exploration of the show's themes in time not spent on plot development.^ The season finale of time-traveling adventure show Doctor Who l be much, much longer than a usual episode 65 minutes instead of the show's usual 45 to 50 minute range.

Social commentary

"Murderland Alley," is both realistically and bleakly portrayed.
Simon described the second season as
a meditation on the death of work and the betrayal of the American working class … it is a deliberate argument that unencumbered capitalism is not a substitute for social policy; that on its own, without a social compact, raw capitalism is destined to serve the few at the expense of the many."[43]
He added that season 3 "reflects on the nature of reform and reformers, and whether there is any possibility that political processes, long calcified, can mitigate against the forces currently arrayed against individuals." .The third season is also an allegory that draws explicit parallels between the war in Iraq and the national drug prohibition,[43] which in Simon's view has failed in its aims[47] and become a war against America's underclass.^ The overtly obvious and deeply anachronistic attempts to create Parallels between the Crusades and the Iraq war, I know the BBC has a left-wing bias but surely it’s talking the piss!!

[51] This is portrayed by Major Colvin, imparting to Carver his view that policing has been allowed to become a war and thus will never succeed in its aims.
Writer Ed Burns, who worked as a public school teacher after retiring from the Baltimore police force shortly before going to work with Simon, has called education the theme of the fourth season. Rather than focusing solely on the school system, the fourth season looks at schools as a porous part of the community that are affected by problems outside of their boundaries. .Burns states that education comes from many sources other than schools and that children can be educated by other means, including contact with the drug dealers they work for.^ They worked with NASA a ton to get it realistic and the special edition versions of the DVDs come with an extra disc with interviews with people from NASA and such.

The Wire employs a broad ensemble cast, supplemented by many recurring guest stars who populate the institutions featured in the show. The majority of the cast is African American, which accurately reflects the demographics of Baltimore. However, this is a rarity in American television drama. .On February 3, 2008, with the airing of its 55th episode, The Wire became the second-longest running dramatic series with a predominantly African-American cast in the history of American prime-time television.^ Post by padz on Feb 20, 2008, 4:34pm Just started with second season of The Wire and it is just as brilliant as the first.

.The show's creators are also willing to kill off major characters, so that viewers cannot assume that a given character will survive simply because of a starring role or popularity among fans.^ Hurts " Two of the show's (formerly) least interesting characters have been given a real boost this season.

In response to a question on why a certain character had to die, David Simon said,
We are not selling hope, or audience gratification, or cheap victories with this show. The Wire is making an argument about what institutions—bureaucracies, criminal enterprises, the cultures of addiction, raw capitalism even—do to individuals. It is not designed purely as an entertainment. It is, I'm afraid, a somewhat angry show.[54]

Principal cast

.The major characters of the first season were divided between those on the side of the law and those involved in drug-related crime.^ I managed to spoil a major shock in PB Season 4 for myself by reading a character profile.

.The investigating detail was launched by the actions of Detective Jimmy McNulty (Dominic West), whose insubordinate tendencies and personal problems played counterpoint to his ability.^ Choi and Ryu each play a down and out person from different of the age spectrums whose lives generally suck.
  • Print Page - So what movies/t.v. are you watching? 19 September 2009 19:20 UTC entervoid.com [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

The detail was led by Lieutenant Cedric Daniels (Lance Reddick) who faced challenges balancing his career aspirations with his desire to produce a good case. Shakima "Kima" Greggs (Sonja Sohn) was a capable lead detective who faced jealousy from colleagues and worry about the dangers of her job from her domestic partner. Her investigative work was greatly helped by her criminal informant, a drug addict known as Bubbles (Andre Royo). Like Greggs, partners Thomas "Herc" Hauk (Domenick Lombardozzi) and Ellis Carver (Seth Gilliam) were reassigned to the detail from the narcotics unit. The duo's initially violent nature was eventually subdued as they proved useful in grunt work, and sometimes served as comic relief for the audience.[55] Rounding out the temporary unit were detectives Lester Freamon (Clarke Peters) and Roland "Prez" Pryzbylewski (Jim True-Frost). Though not initially important players in the operation, Freamon proved a quietly capable investigator with a knack for noticing tiny but important details, and Prez turned out to be a natural at following paper trails.
.These investigators were overseen by two commanding officers more concerned with politics and their own careers than the case, Major William Rawls (John Doman) and Deputy Commissioner Ervin Burrell (Frankie Faison).^ These are two people that are completely different people in costume than out, and after a bit of violence and with adrenaline, get sexed up.

Assistant state's attorney Rhonda Pearlman (Deirdre Lovejoy) acted as the legal liaison between the detail and the courthouse and also had a casual relationship with McNulty. In the homicide division, Bunk Moreland (Wendell Pierce) was a gifted, dry-witted detective partnered with McNulty under Sergeant Jay Landsman (Delaney Williams), the jovial squad commander. Peter Gerety had a recurring role as Judge Phelan, the official who started the case moving.[55]
On the other side of the investigation was Avon Barksdale's drug empire. The driven, ruthless Barksdale (Wood Harris) was aided by business-minded Stringer Bell (Idris Elba). Avon's nephew D'Angelo Barksdale (Larry Gilliard Jr.) ran some of his uncle's territory, but also possessed a guilty conscience, while loyal Wee-Bey Brice (Hassan Johnson) was responsible for multiple homicides carried out on Avon's orders. Working under D'Angelo were Poot (Tray Chaney), Bodie (J.D. Williams), and Wallace (Michael B. Jordan), all street-level drug dealers.[55] Wallace was an intelligent but naïve youth trapped in the drug trade,[55] and Poot a randy young man happy to follow rather than lead. Omar Little (Michael K. Williams), a renowned Baltimore stick-up man robbing drug dealers for a living, was a frequent thorn in the side of the Barksdale clan.
.The second season introduced a new group of characters working in the Baltimore port area, including Spiros "Vondas" Vondopoulos (Paul Ben-Victor), Beadie Russell (Amy Ryan), and Frank Sobotka (Chris Bauer).^ I'm told season 2 is completly new characters aswell.

^ Lionsgate and HIT Entertainment - Introduces New Characters Splasher...

.Vondas was the underboss of a global smuggling operation, Russell an inexperienced Port Authority officer and single mother thrown in at the deep end of a multiple homicide investigation, and Sobotka a union leader who turned to crime in order to raise funds to save his union.^ PM PDTJeff Goldblum has joined " Law & Order: Criminal Intent ," replacing Chris Noth who is leaving the crime drama after three seasons.

Also joining the show in season 2 were Nick Sobotka (Pablo Schreiber), Frank's nephew; Ziggy Sobotka (James Ransone), Frank's troubled son; and "The Greek" (Bill Raymond), Vondas's mysterious boss. .As the second season ended, the focus shifted away from the ports, leaving the new characters behind.^ I'm told season 2 is completly new characters aswell.

The third season saw several previously recurring characters assuming larger starring roles, including Detective Leander Sydnor (Corey Parker Robinson), Bodie (J.D. Williams), Omar (Michael K. Williams), Proposition Joe (Robert F. Chew), and Major Howard "Bunny" Colvin (Robert Wisdom). Colvin commanded the Western district where the Barksdale organization operated, and nearing retirement, he came up with a radical new method of dealing with the drug problem. Proposition Joe, the East Side's cautious drug kingpin, became more cooperative with the Barksdale Organization. Sydnor, a rising young star in the police department in season 1, returned to the cast as part of the major crimes unit. .Bodie had been seen gradually rising in the Barksdale organization since the first episode; he was born to their trade and showed a fierce aptitude for it.^ The first episode was kind of ridiculous but the show is growing on me with each episode.

Plot synopses and episode list

Season 1

.The first season, which began airing on June 2, 2002, introduces two major groups of characters: the Baltimore police department and a drug dealing organization run by the Barksdale family.^ Post by padz on Sept 27, 2007, 8:19am Family Guy's season 6's first episode.

The investigation is triggered when detective Jimmy McNulty meets privately with judge Daniel Phelan following the acquittal of D'Angelo Barksdale for murder after a key witness changes her story. McNulty tells Phelan that the witness has probably been intimidated by members of a drug trafficking empire run by D'Angelo's uncle, Avon Barksdale, having recognized several faces at the trial, notably Avon's second-in-command, Stringer Bell. He also tells Phelan that nobody is investigating Barksdale's criminal activity, which includes a significant portion of the city's drug trade and several unsolved homicides.
Phelan takes issue with this and complains to senior Police Department figures, embarrassing them into creating a detail dedicated to investigating Barksdale. However, owing to the department's dysfunctionality, the investigation is intended as a façade to appease the judge. An interdepartmental struggle between the more motivated officers on the detail and their superiors spans the whole season, with interference by the higher-ups often threatening to ruin the investigation. The detail's commander, Cedric Daniels, acts as mediator between the two opposing groups of police.
Meanwhile, the organized and cautious Barksdale gang is explored through characters at various levels within it. The organization is antagonized by a stick-up crew led by Omar Little, and the feud leads to several deaths, Throughout, D'Angelo struggles with his conscience over his life of crime and the people it affects.
The police have little success with street-level arrests or with securing informants beyond Wallace, a young low-level dealer and friend of D'Angelo. Eventually the investigation takes the direction of electronic surveillance, with wiretaps and pager clones to infiltrate the security measures taken by the Barksdale organization. This leads the investigation to areas the commanding officers had hoped to avoid, including political contributions. When an associate of Avon Barksdale's is arrested by State Police and offers to cooperate, the commanding officers order the detail to undertake a sting operation to wrap up the case Detective Kima Greggs is seriously hurt in the operation, triggering an overzealous response from the rest of the department.This causes the detail's targets to suspect that they are under investigation.
Wallace is murdered by his childhood friends Bodie and Poot, on orders from Stringer Bell, after leaving his "secure" placement with relatives and returning to Baltimore D'Angelo Barksdale is eventually arrested with a large quantity of drugs, and learning of Wallace's murder, is ready to turn in his uncle and Stringer. However, D'Angelo's mother convinces him to rescind the deal and take the charges for his family. The detail manages to arrest Avon on a minor charge and gets one of his soldiers, Wee-Bey, to confess to most of the murders, some of which he did not commit. Stringer escapes prosecution and is left running the Barksdale empire. For the officers, the consequences of antagonizing their superiors are severe, with Daniels passed over for promotion and McNulty assigned out of homicide.

Season 2

.The second season, along with its ongoing examination of the drug problem and its effect on the urban poor, examines the plight of the blue-collar urban working class as exemplified by stevedores (longshoremen) in the city port, as some of them get caught up in smuggling drugs and other contraband inside the containers that their port ships.^ A bunch of murders occur around the city known as the Phantom Killer Murders, and caught up in the middle is a school punk with bleached blonde hair.

[43] In a season-long subplot, the Barksdale organization continues its drug trafficking despite Avon's imprisonment, with Stringer Bell assuming greater power.
McNulty harbors a vendetta against his former commanders for reassigning him to the marine unit. When fourteen attractive, young unidentified women are found dead at the docks, McNulty makes a dedicated, spiteful effort to stick the murders within the jurisdiction of his former commander. Meanwhile, police Major Stan Valchek gets into a feud with Frank Sobotka, a leader of the International Brotherhood of Stevedores, a fictional dockers' union, over competing donations to their old neighborhood church. Valchek demands a detail to investigate Sobotka. Cedric Daniels is interviewed, having been praised by Prez, Major Valcheck's son-in-law, and due to his work on the Barksdale case. He is eventually selected to lead the detail assigned just to investigate Sobotka, when the investigation is concluded Daniels is assured he will move up to head a special case unit with personnel of his choosing.
.As with the previous season, the targets of the investigations are explored and fully realized as characters.^ Hurts " Two of the show's (formerly) least interesting characters have been given a real boost this season.

Life for the blue-collar men of the port is increasingly hard and work is scarce. As union leader, Sobotka has taken it on himself to reinvigorate the port by convincing politicians to support much-needed initiatives. Lacking the funds needed for this kind of influence, Sobotka has become involved with a smuggling ring. .Around him, his son and nephew also turn to crime, as they have few other opportunities to earn money.^ But while other members of the group have turned thei...

^ In other the words, they paid his travel expenses for essentially a few seconds of filming in in around 4 different locations.

^ Well this has a few choice chunks from it + the other great film about him, A Joyful Noise.

It becomes clear to the Sobotka detail that the dead girls are related to their investigation, as they were in a container that was supposed to be smuggled through the port. They again use wiretaps to infiltrate the crime ring and slowly work their way up the chain towards The Greek, the mysterious man in charge. But Valchek, upset that their focus has moved beyond Sobotka, gets the FBI involved. The Greek has contacts inside the FBI and starts severing his ties to Baltimore when he learns about the investigation.
After a dispute over stolen goods turns violent, Sobotka's son, Ziggy is charged with the murder of one of the Greek's underlings. Sobotka himself is arrested for smuggling; he agrees to work with the detail to help his son, finally seeing his actions as a mistake.However, the Greek learns about this through the FBI and scuppers the case against himself by having Sobotka killed. The investigation ends with the fourteen homicides solved but the perpetrator already dead. Several drug dealers and mid-level smuggling figures tied to the Greek are arrested, but he and his second-in-command escape uncharged and unidentified. The Major is pleased that Sobotka was arrested; the case is seen as a success by the commanding officers, but is viewed as a failure by the detail.
Across town, the Barksdale organization continues its business under Stringer while Avon and D'Angelo Barksdale serve prison time. D'Angelo decides to cut ties to his family after his uncle organizes the deaths of several inmates and blames it on a corrupt guard to shave time from his sentence. Eventually Stringer covertly orders D'Angelo killed, faking it as a suicide. Avon is unaware of Stringer's duplicity and mourns the loss of his nephew.
Stringer also struggles with the loss of his drug suppliers and bad quality product. He again goes behind Avon's back, giving up half of Avon's most prized territory to a rival named Proposition Joe in exchange for a share of his supply. .Avon, unaware of the arrangement, assumes that Joe and other dealers are moving into his territory simply because the Barksdale organization has too few enforcers.^ VERY funny show, and one that carefully manages not to go into vomit enducing Americana sweetness when it moves into more dramatic, 'moral' territory.

He contracts a feared assassin named Brother Mouzone. Stringer deals with this by tricking his old adversary Omar into believing that Mouzone was responsible for the vicious killing of his partner in their feud in season one. Seeking revenge, Omar shoots Mouzone, but realizes Stringer has lied and calls 9-1-1. Mouzone recovers and leaves Baltimore, and Stringer is free to continue his business with Proposition Joe with new consent from Avon Barksdale.

Season 3

In the third season, the action focused back on the street and the Barksdale organization but expanded the scope to include the political scene. A new subplot was introduced to explore the potential positive effects of de facto "legalizing" the illegal drug trade, and incidentally prostitution, within the limited boundaries of a few uninhabited city blocks — referred to as Hamsterdam. The posited benefits, as in Amsterdam and other European cities, were reduced street crime, city-wide, and increased outreach of health and social services to at-risk populations. These were continuations of storylines hinted at earlier.

Omar Little continues to rob the Barksdale organization wherever possible. Working with his new boyfriend, Dante, and two women, he is once more a serious problem.The violence related to the drug trade makes it an obvious choice of investigation for Cedric Daniels' now-permanent Major Crimes Unit. Councilman Tommy Carcetti begins to prepare himself for a mayoral race. He manipulates a colleague into running against the mayor to split the black vote, secures a capable campaign manager, and starts making headlines for himself.
Coming to the end of his career, Major Howard "Bunny" Colvin decides to achieve some real change in the neighborhoods he has long been responsible for. Seeing the spread of drug dealing into previously unscathed areas following the destruction of the towers, he assumes the task of containing the problem. Without the knowledge of central command, he sets up areas where drug trade would go unpunished and cracks down on any traffic elsewhere. .His scheme achieves his aims and reduces crime in his district, but is eventually exposed to his superiors and city politicians, including Carcetti who uses the scandal to make a grandstanding speech.^ Also the type of people who eat frozen potatoes will, I assume, not use them to make a Sheppard’s Pie.

^ A "maverick" is now used to describe virtually anyone who makes a movie without using ...

With top brass outraged, Colvin is forced to cease his actions, accept a demotion, and retire from the department on a lower-grade pension.
Dennis "Cutty" Wise, once a drug dealer's enforcer, is released from prison alongside Avon. His struggles to adapt to life as a free man show an attempt at personal reform. Cutty tries to work as a manual laborer and then flirts with his former life, going to work for Avon. .Finding he no longer has the heart for murder, he eventually uses funding from Avon to purchase new equipment for his nascent boxing gym.^ I sold off both box sets as I could find no pleasure in the series now that everything has turned into all that above.

The Major Crimes Unit learns that Stringer has been buying real estate and developing it in order to fulfill his dream of being a successful legitimate businessman. Believing that the bloody turf war with Marlo is poised to destroy everything the Barksdale crew had worked for, Stringer gives Major Colvin information on Avon's weapons stash. But Stringer is himself being betrayed by Avon: Brother Mouzone had returned to Baltimore and tracked down Omar to join forces. Mouzone tells Avon that his shooting must be avenged. .Avon, remembering how Stringer disregarded his order which resulted in Stringer attempting to have Brother Mouzone killed, possibly still furious over D'Angelo's murder (Stringer having finally confessed the truth), and fearing Mouzone's ability to harm his reputation outside of Baltimore, informs Mouzone of Stringer's upcoming visit to his construction site.^ Before season 3 started my brother said he'd seen the first 5 episodes, said something like "remember how the statue was only a foot...?"

There, Mouzone and Omar corner him and shoot him to death.
Colvin tells McNulty about Avon's hideout, and armed with the information gleaned from selling the Barksdale crew pre-wiretapped disposable cell phones, the detail stages a raid, arresting Avon and most of his underlings. .Barksdale's criminal empire lies in ruins, and Marlo's young crew simply moves into their territory.^ VERY funny show, and one that carefully manages not to go into vomit enducing Americana sweetness when it moves into more dramatic, 'moral' territory.

Thus the drug trade in West Baltimore continues with little change.

Despite mentorship from the more seasoned faculty, Namond, and later Michael, work as drug runners for Bodie, who has had middling success selling Proposition Joe's product independently.
The cold-blooded Marlo has come to dominate the streets of the west side, using murder and intimidation to make up for his weak-quality drugs and lack of business acumen. His enforcers Chris Partlow and Snoop conceal their numerous victims in boarded-up row houses where the bodies will not be readily discovered. The disappearances of so many known criminals come to mystify both the major crimes unit investigating Marlo and the homicide unit assigned to solve the presumed murders Marlo coerces Bodie into working under him,
McNulty has found peace working as a patrolman and living with Beadie Russell, and refuses promotions from Daniels, now a Major commanding the Western District. Detectives Kima Greggs and Lester Freamon, as part of the major crimes unit, investigate Avon Barksdale's political donations and serve several key figures with subpoenas. Their work is shut down by Commissioner Ervin Burrell at Mayor Clarence Royce's request, and after being placed under stricter supervision within their unit, both Greggs and Freamon request and receive transfer to the homicide division.
Meanwhile, the city's mayoral primary race enters its closing weeks. Royce initially has a seemingly insurmountable lead over challengers Tommy Carcetti and Tony Gray, with a big war chest and major endorsements. Royce's lead begins to fray, however, as his own political machinations turn against him and Carcetti starts to highlight the city's crime problem. This propels Carcetti to victory in the primary,

Season 5

.HBO announced on September 12, 2006 that it commissioned a fifth and final season consisting of 13 episodes, which was later reduced to ten.^ Post by ady1971 on Oct 13, 2008, 12:35pm Heroes Season 3 Episode 3 Prison Break Season 3 Episode 12 I managed to spoil a major shock in PB Season 4 for myself by reading a character profile.

^ Post by yodasnoog on Jun 27, 2006, 12:38pm Ah is More4 repeating Season 4 again?

^ I've still got episodes 12 and 13 to watch though.

Season 5 focuses on the media and media consumption.[56] .The show depicts the newspaper The Baltimore Sun, and in fact elements of the plot are taken from accounts of real-life events (such as the Jayson Blair NY Times scandal) and people at the Sun.^ The other day I saw a reality show about people who cut hair, and no matter what time I am channel surfing,Tori Spelling's show seems to be on.

[57] The theme, according to another interview with Simon, deals with "what stories get told and what don't and why it is that things stay the same."[56] Issues such as the quest for profit, the decrease in the number of reporters, and the end of aspiration for news quality would all be addressed, alongside the theme of homelessness. In the same interview, Simon indicated that no other theme seemed substantial enough to warrant a sixth season, except possibly the large influx of Latinos into Baltimore. He noted, however, that since no writer on the show spoke Spanish or had any intimate knowledge of the city's Latino population, the field work would be too cumbersome.[57]
.On April 30, 2007, production for season five officially began.^ Post by padz on Jan 6, 2007, 2:41pm Lost season 1 is probably the best TV show, The episodes, ideas, acting, production are all top notch.

Filming wrapped early in the morning of September 1, 2007 and the first episode aired on January 6, 2008.[58] The series finale aired March 9, 2008.
15 months after the fourth season concludes, Mayor Carcetti's cuts in the police budget to redress the education deficit force the investigation of Marlo Stanfield to shut down. Cedric Daniels secures a detail to refocus on the prosecution of Senator Davis for corruption. Detective McNulty returns to the Homicide unit McNulty decides to divert resources back to the police department by faking evidence to make it appear that a serial killer is murdering homeless men.
The Baltimore Sun newspaper also faces budget cuts and the underfunded newsroom struggles to adequately cover the city, omitting many important stories. Commissioner Burrell continues to falsify crime statistics until Deputy Commissioner Valchek leaks unmodified figures to Carcetti. Carcetti fires Burrell and positions Daniels to replace him. Templeton falsely implicates Daniels in Burrell's departure and Burrell passes the file on Daniels' history of unexplained assets to politician Nerese Campbell.
Free from investigation, Stanfield plots to accumulate more power. He learns from Proposition Joe how to launder money and evade investigation. .Once Joe is no longer useful to him, Stanfield has Joe killed and usurps his position with the Greeks and the New Day Co-Op.^ So, while Race is trying to fly to La Paz for jet parts using one of the baron's planes, the baron takes the second plane and tries to kill him.

Stanfield lures his enemy Omar Little out of retirement by having Snoop and Chris Partlow murder Omar's mentor Butchie. Michael Lee continues working as a Stanfield enforcer despite openly questioning orders. Michael uses his earning to provide a home for his friend Dukie and younger brother Bug. Dukie tries to distance himself from the drug trade and take his life on a different path.
Omar returns to Baltimore for revenge against Stanfield but is ambushed and is forced to leap from a window to escape. He injures his leg but continues to kill Stanfield organization members, steal and destroy their money and drugs, and spread the word that Stanfield is too cowardly to face him directly. Omar's mission has just begun when he is shot and killed by Kenard, a young boy who deals drugs on a Stanfield corner.
Templeton claims to have been contacted by McNulty's fake serial killer. City Editor Gus Haynes becomes suspicious, but his superiors are enamoured of Templeton. The story gains momentum and Carcetti spins the resulting attention on homelessness into a key issue in his imminent campaign for Governor and restores funding to the police department.
Bubbles is recovering from his drug addiction while living in his sister's basement. He works selling the Sun newspaper > and also volunteers at a food kitchen. Bubbles finds it hard to bear his grief over Sherrod's death, but after befriending Sun reporter Mike Fletcher, ultimately opens up to his Narcotics Anonymous group about the boy's death. Fletcher writes a profile of Bubbles.
Disgraced police officer Thomas "Herc" Hauk now works as an investigator for Stanfield's attorney Maurice Levy. Herc leaks Stanfield's phone number to the police department. Bunk is disgusted with McNulty's serial killer scheme and tries to have Lester Freamon reason with McNulty. Freamon helps McNulty to perpetuate the lie and uses the funds for an illegal wiretap on Stanfield. Bunk distances himself from them and resumes working the vacant house murders. Bunk's efforts lead to a murder warrant against Partlow for killing Michael's stepfather.
Freamon and Leander Sydnor gather enough evidence to arrest Stanfield and most of his top lieutenants, seizing a large quantity of drugs. Stanfield suspects that Michael is an informant, and orders Snoop to murder him. Michael realizes he is being set up and kills Snoop instead. Michael separates from his makeshift family for their protection. He persuades an Aunt in Howard county to take in Bug with money and a promise of more to come. With his support system gone Dukie lives with drug addicts. Michael begins a career as a stick-up man.
McNulty is unable to end his elaborate lie and cannot enjoy Freamon's success. McNulty feels guilty about interfering with crime scenes and the wasted manpower expended on the fictitious homeless murders and tells Kima Greggs about his fabrications to prevent her wasting time on the case. Greggs tells Daniels about the scheme. Daniels and Rhonda Pearlman take this news to Carcetti, who orders a cover-up because of the issue's importance to his campaign.
Davis is acquitted, but Freamon uses the threat of federal prosecution to blackmail him for information. Freamon learns that Levy is involved in selling copies of sealed indictments to drug lords and tells Pearlman Levy is thrilled when Herc intimates that the source listed in the Stanfield arrest warrants could be an illegal wiretap. Pearlman approaches Levy to negotiate a deal and he manages to reduce his own corruption to a bargaining chip because of the wiretap. Levy ensures Stanfield's conditional release while his subordinates will have to accept long sentences. Pearlman insists that Stanfield must retire from drug trafficking and Stanfield sells the connection to The Greeks back to the Co-Op.Stanfield plans to become a businessman with his profits but cannot resist the lure of the corner.
As the cover-up begins a copy cat killing occurs and McNulty is aghast at the consequences of his actions, but quickly identifies and arrests the culprit in a final act of police work. .Pearlman tells McNulty and Freamon that they can no longer be allowed to do investigative work and warns of criminal charges if the scandal becomes public.^ I believe you are no longer qualified to work in the comics industry .

They opt to retire, and the officers of the Homicide division host a mock wake for McNulty. Haynes exposes Templeton but the managing editors ignore the fabrications and demote anyone critical of their star reporter. Carcetti pressures Daniels to falsify crime statistics to aid his campaign. Daniels refuses and Campbell intervenes, threatening to expose his history. Daniels decides to step down quietly and promotes Ellis Carver to lieutenant before his departure.
As McNulty faces the future without his career he gazes over the city and scenes from the past and the future flash by: Freamon enjoys retirement; Templeton wins a Pulitzer; Carcetti becomes Governor; Haynes is sidelined to the copy desk and replaced by Fletcher; Campbell appoints Valchek as commissioner; Dukie injects heroin; Michael becomes a stickup boy; Pearlman becomes a judge and Daniels a defense attorney; Bubbles is allowed upstairs where he enjoys a family dinner; Chris serves his life sentence alongside Wee-Bey; the drug trade continues; and the people of Baltimore go on with their lives.

Reception

Critical response

.The first season received positive reviews from critics,[59][60] some even calling it superior to HBO's better-known "flagship" drama series such as The Sopranos and Six Feet Under.^ Marking a first for the Emmys, the Academy of Television and Sciences has just released the Top 10 Finalists in each of this year s Outstanding Comedy and Drama series categories.

^ For the first time ever, the Emmys have released their longlist for the categories of outstanding drama series and outstanding comedy series.

^ Post by mikey on Apr 20, 2008, 10:33pm I watched the first three episodes of Six Feet Under .

[61][62][63] .One reviewer felt that the show was partially a retread of themes from HBO and David Simon's earlier works but still valuable viewing and described the series as particularly resonant because it parallels the war on terror through the chronicling of the war on drugs.^ Rome Good one liners this episode: ‘’I am the son of Hades and I fuck concord up her arse’’ As you can guess, bonking is still on the mind with this show.

[64] .Another review postulated that the series might suffer because of its reliance on profanity and slowly drawn-out plot, but was largely positive about the show's characters and intrigue.^ I never thought I'd be watching a show of this nature ever again because it pissed me off, but theres something about this show that brought me into it.

.Despite the critical acclaim, The Wire received poor Nielsen ratings, which Simon attributed to the complexity of the plot; a poor time slot; heavy use of esoteric slang, particularly among the gangster characters; and a predominantly black cast.^ The plot i basic and it's been used like a million times, but it's done well and the movie is just so damn pretty.

[65] Critics felt the show was testing the attention span of its audience and felt that it was mistimed in the wake of the launch of the successful crime drama The Shield on FX.[64] .However, anticipation for a release of the first season on DVD was high at Entertainment Weekly.^ I plan on borrowing my mother's DVDs of the first two seasons when I get the time to watch them.

[66]
.The Guardian described the second season as even more powerful than the first and praised it for deconstructing the show's central foundations with a willingness to explore new areas.^ Post by padz on Feb 20, 2008, 4:34pm Just started with second season of The Wire and it is just as brilliant as the first.

^ It's definitely more of a traditional sitcom-type show, rather than the irrational mayhem that these guys usually do.

^ Alot more risque and bad language than on ya standard dr. The first and second eps were both well written and acted, also the budget seemed to have been spent wisly.

[37] One reviewer with the Boston Phoenix felt that the subculture of the docks was not as absorbing as that of the housing projects. However, the review continued to praise the writers for creating a realistic world and populating it with an array of interesting characters.[67]
The critical response to the third season remained positive. .Entertainment Weekly named The Wire the best show of 2004, describing it as "the smartest, deepest and most resonant drama on TV." They credited the complexity of the show for its poor ratings.^ Post by yodasnoog on Jan 14, 2006, 12:03pm My Name Is Earl - It's excellent to have a weekly dose of Jason Lee on UK TV. Really good, funny show.

^ Post by yodasnoog on Sept 18, 2005, 3:03am The Smoking Room - Definetly THE best comedy show on tv right now in my opinion.

^ Will the Emmy nominations for best drama come down to The Wire?

[68] The Baltimore City Paper was so concerned that the show might be cancelled that it published a list of ten reasons to keep it on the air, including strong characterization, Omar Little, an unabashedly honest representation of real world problems, and its unique status as "broadcast literature." It also worried that the loss of the show would have a negative impact on Baltimore's economy.[69]
At the close of the third season, The Wire still struggled to maintain its ratings and the show faced possible cancellation.[70] Creator David Simon blamed the show's low ratings in part on its competition against Desperate Housewives and worried that expectations for HBO dramas had changed following the success of The Sopranos.[71]
.As the fourth season was poised to begin, almost two years after the previous season's end, Tim Goodman of the San Francisco Chronicle wrote that The Wire "has tackled the drug war in this country as it simultaneously explores race, poverty and 'the death of the American working class,' the failure of political systems to help the people they serve and the tyranny of lost hope.^ The fourth season ended last Septembe...

Few series in the history of television have explored the plight of inner-city African Americans and none—not one—has done it as well."[72] The New York Times called the fourth season of The Wire "its best season yet."[73] Doug Elfman of the Chicago Sun-Times was more reserved in his praise, calling it the "most ambitious" show on television, but faulting it for its complexity and the slow development of the plotline.[74] The Los Angeles Times took the rare step of devoting an editorial to the show, stating that "even in what is generally acknowledged to be something of a golden era for thoughtful and entertaining dramas—both on cable channels and on network TV—The Wire stands out."[75] TIME Magazine especially praised the fourth season, stating that "no other TV show has ever loved a city so well, damned it so passionately, or sung it so searingly."[76] The website Metacritic, which gathers reviews from published news sources and translates them into a percentage score, has assigned to The Wire's fourth season a weighted average score of 98%, the highest for any television show since Metacritic began tracking them in 2005.[3]
.Several reviewers have called it the best show on television, including TIME,[76][77] Entertainment Weekly,[68] the Chicago Tribune,[78] Slate,[56] the San Francisco Chronicle[79] the Philadelphia Daily News.^ Pushing Daisies is the best new show this year Amelie is the all-time greatest Regin Over Me is a great flick, made even greater because it made Dan cry .

[82] .Charlie Brooker, a columnist for The Guardian, has been particularly copious in his praise of the show, in both his column "Screen Burn" and his BBC Four television series Screenwipe, in which he often speaks highly of it, calling it possibly the greatest show of the last 20 years.^ Charlie Brooker praises it as being probably the best show ever.

.In January 2008, then–U.S. Senator Barack Obama was quoted in the Las Vegas Sun as saying that The Wire is his favorite show on television, with Omar Little being his favorite character of the series.^ Post by padz on Dec 8, 2008, 2:16pm I've said it before, and I will forever say it again, but The Wire is fucking amazing.

[85] Rapper Eminem in a December 2009 interview with Complex magazine called it 'literally the best show ever.' 'The Wire Files', an online collection of articles published in darkmatter Journal critically analyzes The Wire's racialized politics and aesthetics of representation.[86] Entertainment Weekly put it on its end-of-the-decade, "best-of" list, saying, "The deft writing—which used the cop-genre format to give shape to creator David Simon's scathing social critiques—was matched by one of the deepest benches of acting talent in TV history."[87]
