The Wire Season 1

http://http// I watched this series over two days, and I was literally left speechless in awe of its greatness. The Wires gritty brutality and realism really struck a cord with me, in comparison with the other more gentler American crime shows. I loved that every character on the show was flawed ranging from the drunkard detective Mcnulty to the retribution seeking drug dealer Omar. The poverty and deprivation is (what imagine) very true to life. The cutting short of too many young men's due to drugs was rally shameful. The highlight of the show for me was Dominic West's accent, it is the best American accent I have ever heard, better than most Americans. The theme tune was really fitting, whats with HBO and theme tuns, thy pick the best ones.

  1. And the theme tune changes every season - it's the same song, they get different people to do it.
