The Wire - Season One

The perfect introduction to one of the best television crime dramas of all time. Life on Baltimore's hugely mean streets is documented from the view of the police, the gangs and the addicts, and as the lines between right and wrong blur, you're sucked into an outstandingly believable world. Five seasons later, the story is over, but treat yourself by starting at the very beginning. You won't regret it.

Extras: Audio commentaries with creator David Simon and crew.

Best quote: “I'll do what I can to help y'all. But, the game's out there, and it's play or get played. That simple.”

Obscure fact: Two of the most convincing characters – Baltimore policeman McNulty and drug lord Stringer Bell - are actually English.

Buy it on for £14.99.
