Got this deal from CL, and thought I'd share it with everyone here
.
http://www.amazon.co...i...9085&sr=8-1

The complete 5 seasons for just $89.99, originally $250. It's out of stock right now, but it looks like you can still put in an order. If you haven't seen this show, and you love good tv, I suggest you watch it ASAP. It is truly an amazing show, and not your typical "case-of-the-week" cop drama. Even if you don't watch cop shows, this definitely should be an exception.

9.7/10 stars on imdb.com

we agree on something, from Omar to Marlo...great character interactions and realistic dialouge, if u aint from the hood, it takes u there without being over-the-top, just a great show...but all of hbo's shows are typically great

The tittle should be changed from one of the greatest to THE GREATEST TV show ever! :yes:

After you guys finish the wire check out The Shield. I wouldn't say its better then the wire but it's def. just as good.

People In Baltimore Report Crimes To Wendell Pierce

It's been years since Wendell Pierce played "Bunk" on "The Wire," but people in Baltimore still react oddly when they see him.

I rate The Wire just under Breaking Bad for best series ever.    Season 5 was kinda ehhhhh....   Seasons 1 and 4 rival any season of any show.  So amazing.

Couldn't agree more.

Breaking Bad, The Wire and then the Sopranoes shortly follow.

Season 2 was excellent. It's all about characters. Realist show.
