    The Wire

    how have I totally missed seeing this show until now?!?!?! We're only 4 episodes in on season 1, but it's pretty fantastic...easily the best cop show I've ever seen.

    Each season of The Wire focuses on a different facet of the city of Baltimore. In chronological order they are: the illegal drug trade, the seaport system, the city government and bureaucracy, the school system, and the print news media. The large cast consists mainly of character actors who are little known for their other roles. Simon has said that despite its presentation as a crime drama, the show is "really about the American city, and about how we live together. It's about how institutions have an effect on individuals. Whether one is a cop, a longshoreman, a drug dealer, a politician, a judge or a lawyer, all are ultimately compromised and must contend with whatever institution they are committed to."[1]

    Sounds interesting!

    Agreed. Was bummed when they cut it.

    Why does HBO kill the good shows?! Deadwood (while not a cop show) was great while it lasted.

    Was a fan from season one and own the entire series on DVD. And I agree its one of the best cop shows ever produced.

    I didn't have the premium channels, but someone from here recommended The Wire so I bought the first season on DVD. After the first episode I was hooked. I ended up buying the entire series on DVD, and I was very disappointed when the show was cancelled. It is easily one of the best cop shows!

    Greatest cop show ever, and in my top 5 t.v. ever
