Summary: No less than the leader of the free world has declared "The Wire" on HBO to be his favorite show. This series, which ran for five seasons, pretty much appears in most dictionaries next to the entry for "critically acclaimed." Written by author and one-time police reporter David Simon, "The Wire" explores every facet of urban life in Baltimore, from top-level civil servants to lost children on the streets.
