Wire, The:S2 (DVD)


Created by David Simon (HBO's triple Emmy Award-winning miniseries The Corner), The Wire is the most unvarnished, uncompromising and realistic police drama ever to air on television. The series returns for its second season with an all-new case, told through 12-episodes that focus on the vagaries of crime and law enforcement in Baltimore, MD. While the show's debut season explored America's urban drug war, the second season will chronicle the steady decline of the working class in American cities, as revealed on the Baltimore waterfront and its unions. As was the case in the first season, the storyline is told from the points of view of both the police and their targets, capturing a universe of subterfuge and surveillance, where easy distinctions between good and evil, and crime and punishment, are challenged at every turn.
