If you’ve been waiting to grab a great deal on HBO’s ‘The Wire: The Complete Series,’ today is that day! It’s the featured Deal of the Day on Amazon’s Gold Box sale – just $89.99 for the complete set, which is an absolute steal.
I reviewed ‘The Wire’ for my Jane After Dark series on TV Squad, and it’s true what everyone says. It’s one of the best shows to ever grace our TV sets. It was a little slow going at first, but by the end of season five, I was hooked.
Creator David Simon, the writers, actors and producers took their time telling the story, weaving an elaborate tale over five seasons. They never dumbed it down or took the easy way out, and for that, we can all be grateful that such TV still exists.
Here’s my last Jane After Dark post on ‘The Wire,’ which includes links to the previous posts. I hope you’ll check it out and leave comments either below or on the TV Squad. It’s about time I watched the series again.
Buy ‘The Wire’ on Amazon, $89.99 – today only! Here’s a scene (NSFW) from season 5, episode 2, ‘More With Less,’ where Avon Barksdale and Marlo Stansfield have a sit-down.
