    Premise: Dealing with crime in Baltimore
    Peabody Award (2003)
    Its ratings are rather low considering it is a favorite among critics.
    It is another police-crime drama.
    It takes a dim pessimistic view.
    The creator keeps pushing the realism of the series, so why not do a non fiction, non scripted documentary instead?
    It was reported that criminals watch the show to learn methods to outsmart the police.
    HBO cut the final season from 13 to 10 episodes.
    It is difficult for a casual viewer to watch as a small detail from one episode will be referred to in a later episode.
    Almost every character is based on a real life person.
    It is lauded as being realistic.
    It does not glamorize the police and often shows the officers as incompetent.
    Each season has a main story and thus the story is dependent on watching earlier episodes.
    It heavily portrays blacks as criminals, yet wins the NAACP Outstanding Drama Award (2004, 2005, 2007).
    Most of the actors on the show were unknowns.
    Newsday said it is 'the greatest dramatic series ever produced for television.'
    Maureen Ryan of the Chicago Tribune raved 'If you have only one hour a week for television, give it to 'The Wire.'
    Ellen Gray of the Philadelphia Daily News declared it 'The best show on television.'
    Entertainment Weekly's Gillian Flynn wrote 'The best series on TV, period' (September 15, 2006).
