This time the spotlights falls in Baltimore's failing education system and how some of its kids just don't see the point of an education when they know they won't get good jobs; and so are easily turned to crime and drug running where the easy money comes along with all of its associated dangers.
It's hard going at times, and the underlying politics gives you the sense of how helpless things are trying to bring children up to do the right things when adults - who should know better - are no better than gangsters short of being armed with guns. Especially the way they will lie, cheat, betray, threaten just to get ahead of the game.
And typically with The Wire as a whole, there is no happy ending to this season - perhaps the odd glimmer of hope for some; but The Wire shines brightly because it's the real world and not some fantasy island where the good guys come out on top.
It's so true that one of the biggest issues in the drug wars is the kids getting dragged into them. This season is very raw. Hard to watch as an English parent in a nice cosy area, but I'm no fool . I know this is a massive problem in the US and the show tackles it superbly.
A brilliant exploration of youth and whether or not one becomes a part of the criminal world. With one particularly powerful climax.
The best season of probably the best American TV show ever made is TV at it's absolute best. This is required, essential viewing.
One of the best shows ever made.
Potentially the best season so far.
Realistic, complex, tragic. The fourth season of The Wire hits you like a ton of bricks. It's everything television can be, and it's the finest moment of one of the best shows of all time.
The WIre is unbelievable. Every character is a legend...
Tackling problems in the school system and paralleling it with the drug scene and politics with the precise, thoroughness viewers expect from The Wire make this easily the best season.
Anybody that has seen it, Loves it! Great actors, showing the drug dealers, the attics, the cops, politics and the press point of view in hbo epic crime drama based in bodymore murderland.
