The Wire is a US TV show and I love it. I stayed up late last night to watch the final episode of the final season. Good stuff. I recommend it unless you don’t like violence, sex, depictions of drug use and fruity language. Nothing is glamorised, and it feels real in many ways. It would be easy to call this a ‘cop show’, but it is so much more than that. I found the first season very hard to get into but once it clicked I was hooked. Highly recommended.
