Th show takes us into the drug world and the cops who are trying to get a tap wire to listen their next move so they can arrest them.

Here is a great series. It is not just another cop show it is about the cops and the criminals You see the lives of both. The series CSI to me is not too realistic like the wire who is. It looks at the bureaucracy, the rule the obstacles, how the drug dealers are organized  as well as the police who are trying to catch them and put them to jail. Like I said it is not like any cop show, There is one story per season the crime is not solved in an hour like the other cop show. The writing is impeccable and so are the acting. The street slang sound authentic also. If you haven’t seen this one I suggest that you do.
