The VERY BEST SERIES on TV EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is hands down THE best that television has to offer and is a show that is a must have for every DVD collection. Season four continues the tradition of offering the very best writing on television, artfully woven storytelling combined with skillful, thoughtful direction and beautiful, authentic and heartfelt performances. This season continues to explore the depths of the breakdown in the lower economic level of society and how the overall lack of opportunity, the breakdown of the family unit and overall neglect has effected this particular area of Baltimore. Season Four delves into the failure of our American education system along with the tragic effects of the 'no child left behind' program. This particularly heartbreaking season follows the lives of four young men within the middle school system and puts a glaring light on a system that offers little hope for their futures. Although this particular drama looks at Baltimore in partcular it serves as a perfect example of the wide scope of detrioration that the issues the show continues to focus on have effected too many of our, once great, American communities. This show is relentless in it's pursuit of honestly portraying the effects of neglect on an entire portion of society. It is unflinchingly in it's honesty and is a perfect example of using the medium of television in the most responsible way...not only to entertain but to educate, enlighten and provoke thoughtful conversation. I was particularly impressed with the fourth season and cannot believe that this show continues to not gain the recognition and viewership it so richly deserves.Read full review

The Wire Season Four
The Wire is one of the greatest series ever. The characters are written very well. The villains in the series are some of the most well thought out, while the heroes are well rounded and imperfect. Watching the series, you truly identify with all the characters and plot themes. Season four is one of the best and is filled with twists and turns that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

The Wire - Complete Fourth Season (2007, DVD)
The Wire is the best piece of writing for television ---- ever, but you should start at the first season.
The kudos of the wire are numerous. The characters are deeply and insightfully developed. The acting is point-blank superb. The plots/subplots are varied and grounded in unblinking, street realism.
It is important to know that The Wire is extremely raw and very adult in terms of vivid violence, the graphic sex is both hetero and homo, and street savvy language is used so universally that the F-word and the N-word lose their socially hot colors and fade to weak pastels.
The bottom line is that, as the viewer, you get emersed in The Wire's Baltimore world. You become emotionally attached to the characters, all of whom are flawed. You are swept along by the plot with no idea on how the things will turn out. It's a wonderful, breath-taking ride.

I like this tv show, it's about baltimore drug dealers and cops trying to stop the drug dealing in the city. In this season it's about the kids in baltimore and how they grow up in a city that has a bunch of drug dealers and the kids see them making quick easy money and have to decide weather to go through school or go down the drug path. I like this show because its what happens in real life. I bought it because i like this show and wanted to see it again.

The Wire The Complete Fourth Season
I got interested in "The Wire" during the first season. I realized that this was something special and I wanted a little piece of it for myself, perhaps to show future generations. I have even thought of how it could be made into a feature movie, etc. Purchasing it on Ebay was cheaper and easier than buying from a big box retailer that didn't have it in stock anyway. Ebay has things like this everyday. I almost don't want to sing the praises too much, because that only creates more bidders, which is competition for me. Just kidding, there are enough "buy it now" listings to get it done in ten minutes. I'm very pleased.
