“The greatest drama of the past 25 years” - Vulture
“Unmissable television” - The Guardian
In the narcotics-ridden streets of West Baltimore, there are good guys and there are bad guys. Sometimes you need more than a badge to tell them apart.
Cue David Simon, with his legendary ‘anti-cop show’, The Wire, which portrayed the streets of America in a whole new light. It cast the city as its central character, allowing a network of characters from all kinds of backgrounds to act upon its stage.
First hitting our screens 16 years ago, The Wire captivated audiences with its tight plots, incredibly unscrupulous characters and impeccable dialogue. From Clay Davis’ iconic ‘sheee-it’, providing one of TV’s most-quoted catchphrases, to Omar Little’s countless one-liners, (“You come at the King, you best not miss”), there are scores of favourite moments to choose from.
So what are you waiting for? Enter the web of drama now, with all five flawless seasons of The Wire.
