The Wire, Season 2HDClosed Captioning
Open iTunes to preview or buy TV programmes.
McNulty's on harbor patrol. Daniels is in the police-archives dungeon. Prez is chafing in the suburbs. Greggs has a desk job. The detail may be on ice, but corruption marches on . . . and a horrific discovery is about to turn the Baltimore shipping port inside out. HBO presents Season 2 of this gritty drama series that focuses on the vagaries of crime and law enforcement in Baltimore, MD. Setting up in the wake of the first season's joint homicide/narcotics detail that exposed a major drug operation — and left its members stigmatized and reassigned — the second season expands to include not only familiar drug dealers, but a group of longshoremen and organized crime members who are caught up in a major homicide case. The cast includes Dominic West, Chris Bauer, Paul Ben-Victor, John Doman, Idris Elba, and Frankie R. Faison.

The 2nd album problem ... not in this case!
After a great 1st series, would the 2nd be as good? Hmm, the 2nd album syndrome. Not in the case of The Wire which just seems to get better and better. I know, £1.89 per episode is a bit steep and yes, you can pick up the DVDs cheaper elsewhere but sometimes you just need your instant fix, whatever the price (Avon would be proud!). PS. The loss of one star is for itunes and not the producers. Come on itunes, have a wee think about pricing (credit crunch and all that) and also what products you can get on the US site compared to the UK one! Having said that, well done itunes for putting all five series up now.
iTunes is too expensive but Thee Wire is worth the sacrifice
Although it took me a little while to get into this series by the end I loved it. The producers didn't feel the need to use characters from the first series which didn't add anything to the story. I was also waiting for McNulty to join the main team sooner and then realised that this would have happened in other tv shows but The Wire sets its own trends.
A brilliant second chapter
I have heard talk of the second series not "being up to scratch" etc but in my opinion, this is one of the best parts of the best TV show ever. The family relationships of the Sobotka family (particularly the strength of Frank) were extremely life like. The way David Simon and Ed Burns can show another shady element in Baltimore (the port) as well as keeping the project story moving along is nothing short of genius. Five out of five for me on this series !
