  • An introduction to the deep and engaging world of Baltimore policing, crime, workforce politics, schools, journalism and especially community as a microcosm for all of America.

    Every single episode in this series ought to have a nine or above. This is, quite simply, the best series I have ever witnessed on television and very likely the best around period. Hopefully my review will push this, the only episode below a nine, over that brink and make it very likely the best reviewed television series on this entire site. The pilot episode is especially revealing and pivotal after being rewatched when the series is concluded, as the message, the feel, the humor, and the deep-seated sorrow and frustration are omnipresent even as early as the first few minutes. "This America, man"
