David Simon's sprawling epic of urban decay is as good as this startlingly brilliant show has ever been - and it has always been among TV's best.

If there's one problem with The Wire, it's that, five seasons in, too many beautifully realized characters fight for too little room - a gem of a complaint to have.

Not exactly a Hallmark card, but one hell of an artistic achievement.

The dense mythology of HBO's The Wire, painstakingly created over five novelistic seasons, has enough drama packed inside to be easily spun out for the next five, ten, 15 years.

The fifth and final season may be the most overtly farcical, but only because things in this slightly fictionalized Baltimore have become, if you can imagine, worse than ever. When the going gets tough on The Wire, the tough get funny.

Simon can rest assured that he's created something unique that will last well beyond the confines of its prime time ratings prison.
