The Wire returns September 10

I'm a huge fan of the Wire, which puts the light into urban blight. Check out the show's website for previews.

I agree with Paul Levinson that what makes The Wire so good is the depth of characterization of the criminals on the show and the murky line between right and wrong.

The (limited) legalization of drugs in season three and the eventual fallout was a brilliant commentary on the futility of the drug war and the ineffectiveness of our political institutions.
