741229, There shouldn't be a comparison

Shows a different on so many levels. The Wire was more realistic glimpse into the world of dealers, users, law enforcement, and politics.
Snowfall is so fictionalized with some of those same elements, to the point that even though some of these things may have happened you still have a huge suspension of disbelief. Where as The Wire you didn't have to make it as huge.

I would rather compare Snowfall with something like Power if it were me.
