About

The WireThis is a blog dedicated to the Wire in general and Jimmy McNulty in particular. If you haven’t seen it yet, shame on you. Go grab a few beers, buy the dvd box and enjoy the ride. The show is critically acclaimed with very memorable characters headed by police detective Jimmy McNulty, played by British actor Dominic West.

“The Wire” is the greatest original dramatic series ever produced for television. It has yet to get a best-series Emmy nomination, much less win, but it deserves that trophy, an Oscar, a National Book Award and a freakin’ Nobel Peace Prize to boot. – Noel Holston, Newsday, 17 December 2004

This American television drama is like no other. Set and produced in Baltimore, Maryland USA, it oozes of authenticity as it’s created by former crime reporter David Simon. The homicide rate in Baltimore is nearly seven times the national rate, six times the rate of New York City, and three times the rate of Los Angeles. Many of these crimes are related to drugs.
