    The Wire Season 5

    I just finished the fifth and last season of the Wire, and all I have to say is that I have so many feelings about the greatest show ever. Mostly, I feel sadness because the show has ended, but I do plan on watching Treme and I don't think I can live without the Wire, so I will re-watch the DVDs until they break. This season was great and I felt like it was the season with the biggest novelistic feel to it. I love the parallels shown between the newspaper and the police department. I also loved how many characters were shown following in the foot steps of other characters from prior seasons.

    One of Television's best series ever! Greatly ignored by the pub

    The Wire

    I began watching the Wire in HBO in season 2, the story writing was real and riviting. The actors were incredibly believable. The storyline kept you coming back. The Barnes and Noble deal was too good to pass up. 50% off and buy two get one free, and I needed seasons 3, 4, and 5. awesome

    hello

    It was a gift that I purchased. <BR/><BR/>I don't know how to rate it because, I have not seen the show yet. I just want to say that I purchased this product and received it in no more than three business days. The service was pretty fast. Ordering from barnes and noble was a success. I would order from them again.

    GENIUS!

    There is an ingredient in the human creative process that recognizes the best of the best...Hence all seasons of The Wire. This series should be required viewing for all. Season Five equals and even surpasses the perfection of this video and literary drama. The characters, good and bad, become part of the viewer. Having just finished The Wire, I'm in a state of grieving for what has ended. I'm in a state of gratitude for above and beyond in the world of TV and DVD viewing. Some series, The Sopranos and 24, may equal The Wire. Nothing yet surpasses it. The story is real and flawless. Casting is perfection. I am humbled by the best of creative genius!

    The Absolute Pinacle of What Modern Serial Television Should Be

    After four unbelievable seasons, with each getting better than the last The Wire, ends on the highest note of any show i've ever seen. Not once in it's ten episode arc does the fifth season let off the perverbial gas peddle. Everything you thought you knew about this ficticious Baltimore comes to a shocking conclusion and gets wonderfully tied together. All the actors are on point with Michael K Williams's Omar, being among the best. If he doesn't at least get a nomination or anything for this season, I declare all awards shows as being discriminatory. New comer to the show, Clark Johnson's, chief editor Gus, is also exceptional. And Johnson directed the series finale. It's great seeing a guy like Clark back on TV. His portrayal of Meldrick Lewis on Homicide was spectacular. By the end of this ten and half hours or so, you will be sitting there wanting to relieve every history making moment of "The Best Show Ever".
