Season Two of The Wire is a departure from Season One. A new case begins, and the setting seems far removed from the ghetto of the first season as the focus moves to the blue-collar environment of the city port. However the Barksdale drug dealing organisation, which was central to the first season, becomes the major sub-plot. To give away anymore of the storyline would be a crime!

The Wire truly is one of the greatest shows ever created. Season Two is even better than the first. The characters development is second to none, while the plot is always unpredictable. You can really never know what is going to happen next. For me two things really stand out in this season. Firstly the way certain throw away remarks or events occur, and their significance only becomes apparent episodes later. This show rewards the attentive viewer like no other. Secondly the comedy - Season Two is very, very funny. Sure it is grim and nasty, and some really tragic events occur. But there are also moments of pure comic genius thrown in.

Watch The Wire - you will not be disappointed. It is engaging, engrossing and touching, and seriously cannot be missed. Watch it and you will be hooked.

Season 2 of The Wire brings in a new story surrounding the docks of Baltimore with new characters that fit in perfectly. With the European connection of some characters this reminds me of Grand Theft Auto IV a little. As well as the new characters. the old characters are still here; D'Angelo, Stringer, Avon, Omar, etc but they are more of background characters. New characters, target and story but still Five Stars.

 Amazing- this show is utter Genuis.

The 2nd season of The Wire is better than the first. I've seen seasons 1-3, and this one is my personal favourite. The pace at the start is slow, and the new characters might seem annoying, but stick with it, because eventually the plot points start to come together and the last few episodes are nothing short of spectacular. Only The Wire could create a character is brilliant as Brother Mouzone. The last episode of this season is probably the best episode of the show in the first three seasons.

The Second, 12 episode, Season of the critically acclaimed 'The Wire' picks up proceedings not long after the events of year one with the investigative team lead by Daniels now disbanded. Rather than jumping straight back into the aftermath of the Barksdale drug empire (which becomes more of a background story this time around) the writers instead choose to introduce the viewer to another social group found in the city of Baltimore, namely the dock workers that are struggling to make ends meet in modern times. When thirteen bodies are found in an unclaimed container another unpredictable and intriguing case starts to unfold.

All credit must go to the writers and cast who are able to effortlessly craft another fascinating tale despite a completely new focus and the introduction of a whole host of extra characters. As with Season One the line between the supposed good guys and bad guys remains blurred as the show takes the time to fully explore the motivations of its entire cast and it is this that makes the wire far more than just another cop show.
