Posted by David Lambert
In the projects. On the docks. In City Hall. In the schools. And now, in the media. The places and faces have changed, but the game remains the same.
Times are tough for the detail. Mayor Carcetti has slashed the departments budget to the bone. Police are operating without overtime, some without cars and radios. Angered, McNulty is off the rails again and headed down a dangerous path of deception and lies that will ally him with an unscrupulous reporter. The drug trade still rules the corners, all you have to do is read between the lines.
On August 12th HBO Video and distributor Warner Home Video will release The Wire - The Complete 5th Season. For $59.99 SRP you will get a 4-DVD set containing all the episodes from the critically acclaimed show's final season (630 minutes), plus several extras:
