Amazon's Gold Box Deals of the Day are usually hit or miss affairs, but this time they really have struck gold. Today they've got the complete box set of HBO's critically acclaimed The Wire selling for $74.99. That's 63% off list price and a pretty amazing deal when you consider that you're getting 60 episodes for a price that's not much more than some sets charge for a single season. The set also includes bonus features on all five seasons of the show.
Set in Baltimore, The Wire examined corruption and compromise throughout various facets of the city, one per season: the drug trade, the port system, the city government, the schools, and finally the news media. It's got a list of critical praise as long as Lex Luthor's arm, and it's repeatedly been hailed as being a true "novel for television." If you're like me and missed the boat on this show, now is the perfect time to jump on board. Act fast, however: the deal is only good for today, or until they run out of copies.
