The Wire, Season 1HDTV-MAClosed Captioning

Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.


On the drug-infested streets of West Baltimore, there are good guys and there are bad guys. Sometimes you need more than a badge to tell them apart. From HBO comes Season 1 of this highly realistic drama series that follows a single sprawling drug and murder investigation in Baltimore — one that culminates in a complex series of dangerous wiretaps and surveillance. Told from the points of view of both the police and their targets, the series captures a universe where easy distinctions between good and evil, and crime and punishment, are challenged at every turn. The ensemble cast includes Dominic West, John Doman, Idris Elba, Frankie R. Faison, Larry Gilliard Jr., Wood Harris, Domenick Lombardozzi, Deirdre Lovejoy, Wendell Pierce, Lance Reddick, Andre Royo, and Sonja Sohn.

Customer Reviews

One of the best cop TV series in history...

...if not THE best. The Wire offers an extremely realistic take on the Baltimore drug trade. One that surely has ruffled the feathers of decision makers around this once great American city, if only privately. The Wire pulls no punches in its scathing review of the heroin drug trade, free trade, capitalism and thier effects on a dying metropolis - over the span of five seasons, each better and more pointed then the last. The only regret you'll have is when you've finished watching all of the episodes and you realize that there isn't better serial television to be made anywhere else. At least not in our lifetimes.


This is one of the best series I've ever watched! I loved this show so much I went out and bought all four available seasons! I can't wait for season five to be released! It's just too bad that the show has ended! You won't be dissapointed if you decide to buy the season!

A must

Best show of all time!
