    Thanks so much for your feedback, elora and emma! I was always nervous about this song choice so I'm pleased it worked for you.

    Thank you so much, Jemmz! I actually convinced one friend to watch 'The Wire' based on this vid so I'm pleased the power of the S4 story comes through.

    I've not seen the show either, but I thought this was a very powerful vid. Definitely very emotive! Excellent song choice and pace of clips, I really liked it

    Hey Brooke! Thank you so much for watching, even though you don't watch the show. It seems you instinctively understood the themes and the message of the vid without having to see the storylines. Thank you for your feedback!

    I've not seen The Wire; but I thought you chose a great song for the situation of the kids on the streets. The opening "It's not what you thought"; what a great line for someone who thinks the streets is something it's really not. I thought you chose great some great scenes to fit along with the lyrics.

    Thank you so much, Kaja! Again, thanks for reviewing a vid for a show you don't even watch. The Wire is a great great show (S4 especially) though it is the hardest show to get into. The first episode has no proper introductions to the characters, like an ordinary Pilot would. You have to be very very patient. And yes, a lot of viewers struggle with the Baltimore accent/dialect. A lot of people watch it with subtitles.
