I just got done watching the series The Wire and i'm sure glad I did. This is the best television HBO has ever had on their network, that's for
sure. If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it.
The show starts off in the streets of inner-city Baltimore, focusing on the drug trade and it's effects on the police and the drug dealers.
The show then moves on to the docks of Baltimore,the struggle of the blue collar worker and the demise of the Unions.
After the docks, the show moves back to the streets, where the police try new methods to try and combat the drug trade.
Then, the Wire moves on to the inner-city school system and exposes how utterly broken the system is. We also get to see a politician run for mayor
and all the problems that brings.
In the last season of The Wire, the show introduces the media, and shows how that connects to the previous seasons.
I cannot recommend this series enough. It really shows how the drug trade is connected to everything. I didn't go into much detail here for those
that haven't seen it but don't let that fool you. The show requires your attention. This is not a casual watch by any means.
