I have previously expressed some admiration for this TV programme, which I acquired from Amazon on DVD.
I am now ploughing through the third series. It ain't easy, but it is rewarding. Bunk, Kima, Cedric and, of course, McNulty are the stars; but even the villains (not all of whom are black drug-dealers) have their moments. It is complex and multi-layered; and the political dimension is becoming increasingly apparent.
Wonderful - but they do swear an awful lot.
