Unlike most television crime dramas, which neatly introduce and then solve a case all in the space of one hour, HBOs "the Wire" follows one single drug and homicide investigation throughout the length of an entire season. Centred around the drug culture of inner-city Baltimore, the series storyline unfolds from the points of view of both the criminals lording the streets and the police officers determined to bring them down. Created by writer David Simon, "The Wire"'s multifaceted approach offers a nuanced overview of every aspect of the drug trade and the complex morality of its participants.
