About this deal

Dennis "Cutty" Wise continues to work with boys in his boxing gym, and accepts a job at the school rounding up truants.

In February 2012, Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Žižek gave a lecture at Birkbeck, University of London titled The Wire or the clash of civilisations in one country. These investigators were overseen by two commanding officers more concerned with politics and their own careers than the case, Deputy Commissioner Ervin Burrell ( Frankie Faison) and Major William Rawls ( John Doman).In a final montage, McNulty gazes over the city; Freamon enjoys retirement; Templeton wins a Pulitzer; Carcetti becomes Governor; Haynes is sidelined to the copy desk and replaced by Fletcher; Campbell appoints Valchek as commissioner; Carcetti appoints Rawls as Superintendent of the Maryland State Police; Dukie continues to use heroin; Pearlman becomes a judge and Daniels a defense attorney; Bubbles is allowed upstairs where he enjoys a family dinner; Chris serves his life sentence alongside Wee-Bey; the drug trade continues; and the people of Baltimore go on with their lives. The cliffhangers, the crimson-black humour and the stream of richly satisfying antagonists (most memorably John Lithgow in season four) make resistance impossible. The driven, ruthless Barksdale ( Wood Harris) was aided by business-minded Stringer Bell ( Idris Elba).

Randy's house is firebombed by school bullies for his cooperation with the police, leaving his caring foster mother hospitalized and sending him back to a group home.Proposition Joe tries to engineer conflict between Omar Little and Marlo to convince Marlo to join the co-op.

Set in a pastel-hued afterlife populated by virtuous, philanthropic sorts who can’t even swear and, er, someone who got in by accident, The Good Place was Parks and Recreation co-creator Michael Schur’s attempt at channelling Lost, via the great philosophers and, presumably, The Sims. In an article published in The Washington Post, Anmol Chaddha and William Julius Wilson explain why Harvard chose The Wire as curriculum material for their course on urban inequality: "Though scholars know that deindustrialization, crime and prison, and the education system are deeply intertwined, they must often give focused attention to just one subject in relative isolation, at the expense of others. Approaching the end of his career, Major Howard "Bunny" Colvin of Baltimore's Western District wants to effect some real change in the troubled neighborhoods for which he has long been responsible.Often praised for its hyper-realistic portrayal of financial crime, Billions is for fans of crime drama and economics alike. Former President of the United States Barack Obama has said that The Wire is his favorite television series.
