Unlike most television crime dramas, which neatly introduce and then solve a case all in the space of one hour, HBO's THE WIRE follows one single drug and homicide investigation throughout the length of an entire season. Centered on the drug culture of inner-city Baltimore, the series' storyline unfolds from the points of view of both the criminals lording the streets and the police officers determined to bring them down.

One of the very best TV Series of course, but in recent TV history (which I began watching this (2016)) everything in this tv show are going slow. It's like watching breaking bad season 3 again and again without the plot running smoothly. If someone will create a remastered version and reduces the episode to 40' instead the 60' maybe this tv show be better.

Hard to find any fault in a fantastic series.
