    The Wire

    The Wire

    Follow
    HBO (ended 2008)
    In chronicling a multi-generational family business dealing illegal drugs and the efforts of the Baltimore police to curb their trade, this series draws parallels between these organizations and the men and women on either side of the battle.

    The words of Gary W. Potter, Professor of Criminal Justice and Police Studies at Eastern Kentucky University, in writing about the savings and loan scandals of the 1980s, can also be used to illuminate some of the central premises of the show:

    "There is precious little difference between those people who society designates as respectable and law abiding and those people society castigates as hoodlums and thugs. The world of corporate finance and corporate capital is as criminogenic and probably more criminogenic than any poverty-wracked slum neighborhood. The distinctions drawn between business, politics, and organized crime are at best artificial and in reality irrelevant. Rather than being dysfunctions, corporate crime, white-collar crime, organized crime, and political corruption are mainstays of American political-economic life."

    Tim Goodman, the television critic for The San Francisco Chronicle, summed the show up perfectly when he wrote: "This show is precisely the reason you pay for HBO."

    In New York's Newsday, Diane Werts says: "Most TV crime series aspire to John Grisham's level. 'The Wire' aspires to Dostoevsky's."

    Season Themes

    Season One centers around a family of drug dealers and the innerworkings of their empire. It also follows the detectives who are trying to catch the high members of the empire. Season Two steps away from the drug trade (while still mentioning characters from the previous season) to a case of dead prostitutes which turns into a look at the corruption surrounding the Port. Season Three investigates politics and finishes the main stories that were left open in season one. Season Four focuses on four middle school students and their journeys through the public school system and continues to address the politics of an inner-city and the issues of an election. Season Five is rumored to be about the media's role in Baltimore. Season Five will be the show's final season.

    Theme Music

    In the Season One opening credits, the Blind Boys of Alabama did Tom Waits's "Way Down in the Hole". The Season Two opening credits feature Waits's version of the song. According to creator David Simon, "It was our way of saying: This is the same show (song) but this year, the tale itself (singer, tonality) will be different." The Neville Brothers's version of the song opens Season Three. The theme which plays over the end credits was composed by the show's music supervisor, Blake Leyh.

    International Airings

    Australia -- Monday at 12:00 p.m. on Ch.9. Currently airing Season 3. New Zealand -- Wednesday at 11:40 p.m. on TV2, beginning December 15, 2004.

    NBC
    In this new drama from Bryan Fuller, Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) comes to life. The characters are based on those from Thomas Harris' novels. Gifted criminal profile Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) has a unique way of thinking and can empathize with anyone, making it easy for him to figure out how a killer thinks. Needing the help of an expert when a twisted killer becomes too complicated for Will, he joins up with Dr. Lecter, one of the top psychiatrists in the country. Will and Hannibal (only the audience knows he's a serial killer) develop a talented partnership and seem unstoppable when it comes to catching criminals. Other characters include Dr. Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne), head of the FBI's Behavioral Science Unit. His job is to catch the most heinous serial killers and Will is his most valuable tool. Dr. Alana Bloom (Caroline Dhavernas), a former psychology professor, is an FBI consultant and Will's co-worker. Dr. Lecter was her mentor and she disagrees with him when it comes to his unconventional treatments. Members of the Behavioral Science Unit include Beverly Katz (Hettienne Park) who specializes in fibers. She always treats Will like everyone else and not someone special, something he appreciates. Jimmy Price (Scott Thompson) is a master of forensics and technology. Brian Zeller (Aaron Abrams) works with Katz and uses his medical degree to determine cause of death. He is arrogant and competitive which makes him at odd with Will. Outside the group is tabloid blogger Freddie Lounds (Lara Jean Chorostecki) who is out to use Will and the FBI for her next sensational expose. Bryan Fuller is a writer and executive producer along with Martha De Laurentiis, Sara Colleton, Jesse Alexander and Katie O'Connell. David Slade is the director and executive producer for the series pilot. For the first season of Hannibal , the episodes were titled after French meal courses. In season two, the episode titles refer to Japanese cuisine. According to Bryan Fuller, these have a particular significance to Hannibal's own history. In season one, NBC pulled Oeuf (at the request of Bryan Fuller) and renumbered its episodes, airing only 12 of the 13 episodes produced. The episode became available for viewing on Amazon and iTunes.moreless
