Yeah, "The System" might be a better choice of words, although I'd argue it's the same thing since capitalism is our system in this country. But similar problems as the ones you see on The Wire would probably arise under other systems.
I read a lot of comparisons with The Wire and Charles Dickens, but I always thought Dostoevsky was just as valid.
Not trying to make this a political conversation, but that's tough with this show.
Season 5 was quite Dickensian!
They thought about doing a Season 6 -- the theme was going to be about the Hispanic influx and how it was affecting things.
