Why Like Wire?

The greatest television programme ever made
The Wire to be the greatest ever television drama
The best TV show of all time

Сравнивают не с другими сериалами, а с романами Достоевского и Диккенса. Авторы подтверждают:
"Our model when we started doing The Wire wasn't other television shows. Our models are the big Russian novels," says Simon, "and also writers like Balzac. We're trying to do with modern-day Baltimore what Balzac did with Paris, or Dickens with London, or Tolstoy with Moscow."
