In the projects. On the docks. In City Hall. And now, in the schools. The places and faces change, but the game remains the same. Four West Baltimore boys wrestle with what to do with the rest of their summer vacation. When unkempt outcast Duquan 'Dukie' Weems is beaten up by a neighbouring group of children, Michael Lee is the quiet leader of the group';;s retaliation.
If you have only one hour a week for television, give it to The Wire. Even if you think you don't have time for television, find an hour a week to watch the fourth season of The Wire. It's a masterpiece.
While the fourth-season opener features the usual warp-speed intercuts of a dozen plot lines, its central focus is ingeniously linking the tribulations of 1) street-corner drug dealing and 2) running for mayor of Baltimore.
