Brilliant start to the season
6 August 2011 | by cameron-burnSee all my reviews

It's a testimony to the seemingly innate skill of the writers of HBO's acclaimed series "the wire" that, after only one hour of television, they have created four new characters with more heart and character than any other children on TV, and that these characters were probably only in about 1/4 of the episode.

Season 4 of the wire opens up brilliantly, to put it short. Not only are we introduced to a new set-up of characters, (based around the interesting idea of how teenagers on the street struggle between the choice of what is right (to try and live an honest life) and what is easy (crime)), but most of the major characters from seasons past are reintroduced seamlessly, as if they'd never been gone.

I've tried so far not to fulfil the stereotype of the "preaching Wire fan" who tries to convert everyone to the show, but the fact that for 3 seasons and 1 episode I have been so engrossed within the city and the characters that I'm afraid that's about to change.
