The Wire
2002
 
Creator David Simon's gritty HBO drama takes an unflinching look at Baltimore's drug culture, through the eyes of both the dealers and the police. Season 1 follows the investigation of a violent drug-dealing crew known as the Barksdale Organization. But the line between good and bad is blurred, as the cops push the boundaries of morality while even the hardened criminals display flashes of humanity. Dominic West stars as detective Jimmy McNulty.

A gritty, scathing social commentary, the Wire can be at times difficult to watch, but well worth the effort for those willing to give it a try. Each season tackles a different theme with different character focus (though the old standbys remain).
