Abstract The Wire is distinguished by the depth of its systemic analysis of Baltimore's urban corruption and by the emotional power it elicits. By presenting so many vibrant characters with enormous potential and showing how our culture is wired to destroy them, it creates serial tragedy with a systemic form of suture.
