YOU (South Africa) - - CHILL OUT -

THE WIRE SEA­SONS 1-5

If you’ve never seen this ground­break­ing se­ries, which ran from 2002 to 2008, you’re in for a treat.

It’s a grip­ping, com­plex and provoca­tive tale of a city – Bal­ti­more in the US – told from the per­spec­tive of cops, drug deal­ers, jour­nal­ists, gov­ern­ment of­fi­cials and ed­u­ca­tors over the course of five sea­sons.

As a bonus it fea­tures Idris Elba in his breakout Amer­i­can role with his co-stars in­clud­ing a young Michael B Jor­dan, Michael Ken­neth Williams (The Night of) and Do­minic West (The Af­fair). – DEN­NIS CAVERNELIS
