Synopsis
TV Series (2002-2008). 5 Seasons. 60 episodes. This unvarnished, highly realistic HBO series follows a single sprawling drug and murder investigation in Baltimore. Told from the point of view of both the police and their targets, the series captures a universe of subterfuge and surveillance, where easy distinctions between good and evil, and crime and punishment, are challenged at every turn. The first season concentrated on the often-futile efforts of police to infiltrate a West Baltimore drug ring headed by Avon Barksdale.
