Aro Favourite Wire, The - Season 1 (TV Series)


Aroview: Tough, patient HBO TV policier (from David Simon, creator of HOMICIDE: LIFE ON THE STREETS) follows the Baltimore drug scene from both the police and criminal perspectives.

Using an impressive cast of relative unknowns, balanced by some impressive directors and writers (including novelist Richard Price), this manages to depict the squalid shades of moral greyness for all involved with considerable veracity, whether dealing with street-level violence or high-flying political machinations.

Season 1 tracks the local detectives' season-long effort to bring down a particularly clever drug-lord played by Wood Harris.
