Women Who Kick Ass on TV Kima Greggs, ‘The Wire’ HBO’s The Wire broke down a number of barriers for TV drama and is often cited as among the greatest shows ever produced. As a black, lesbian cop in a system as crooked as the streets she is fighting to save, the street-smart detective stands out as a complex character who, much like her peers, transcends black and white morality.
