The Wire

The Wire just wrapped after completing 5 Seasons. About the police of Baltimore, tackling drugs, gangs, shootings and the likes. Each season links to another area, such as Season 2, the Ports, Season 4 Schools and Season 5, the News paper. You see the rise and fall of the gangs in the show as well as how the Major Crimes squad is born, killed off, rebirthed and finally they crack the case. Each Season they use more sophisticate wire taps (hence the name) t0 catch the bad guys. Great TV Series.  Wikipedia Page
