Waiting for new episodes of 24, Lost and so on? Never mind those! Here’s one of the best series HBO has to offer. The 4th season already premiered on the 10th of September and aired already 2 episodes. One of the most critically acclaimed programs on air, the Peabody Award-winning drama series ‘The Wire’ continues to challenge viewers with a “cop show” unlike anything on television.
Season four of ‘The Wire’ centers on the lives of four young boys as they traverse adolescence in the drug-saturated streets of West Baltimore. The new episodes of the series examine their world through the theme of education, asking viewers to consider the world that awaits these boys, and to consider further the American commitment to equal opportunity.
I cannot recommend this enough, as well as the first tree seasons in case you missed them. An A+ series.
