The Wire

Friday, January 11, 2008

"The Wire" just began its final season on HBO. The dramatic series’ gritty, unblinking portrayal of Baltimore has critics calling it the best show on TV. But those are critics. What do the real people of Baltimore think of "The Wire?" Aaron Henkin of WYPR asked some residents of the city’s tough neighborhoods what they thought of the drama.

PLOWDEN from baltimore, mMd. 21213

while not particularly proud of the way this side of our city is depicted, it is true to life and adequately portrayed. however this is not the predominate life style of inner city baltimore. it is just a small percentage of the population of it's citizens, but every family in this city is affected in some way by the drug culture today.
