I’m not hopeful that we’ll ever see a re-release of The Wire on Blu-ray, so I feel that I can recommend the full-series DVD set with some confidence. In any case, and any image resolution, this is about as complex, ambitious and accomplished a “crime drama” as TV has ever managed.
And that’s if you think the label “crime drama” can even come close to containing what David Simon and team made here.
At 60% off the RRP, it’s a rather good time to buy. Amazon have the price at $79.99, down $199.95.
