The Wire (2002–2008) [TV Series]


Recently completed watching The Wire. It is an excellent TV series about the lives of people centred around the drug dealings in Baltimore, Maryland. Acting is top-notch. Throws a close insight into many areas like police investigation, apartheid, legal and judicial systems, drug-dealing, politics etc. I gave it a 10/10 rating on IMDB (rating is 9.6 on IMDB). The storyline is packed. Loved the numbers “The Fall” by Blake Leyh and “Way Down in the Hole” by Steve Earle.

Favourite character: The Bunk (played by Wendell Pierce)
