Go to Best Buy, or get online, and buy The Wire Season One for $24.99.
This is the best television program ever created. Better than Roots, better than Lucy, better than The Sopranos, better than Hill Street Blues, better than anything. I mean this literally, not as some kind of hyperbole. When I watch The Wire, I almost can't believe how lucky I am to live in 2007.
For a long long time, the DVDs have been very expensive. This is a great opportunity to jump in while the jumping in is good.
