* The second season of ''Series/TheWire'' focuses largely on the international crime syndicate which not only imports the drugs that the various gangs sell on the street, but also smuggles in women [[SexSlave forced into prostitution]] and stolen goods. The top two men in the organization frequently speak Greek to each other at length, which goes uncaptioned and what they're saying is difficult if not impossible to guess from the situation or tone. The second season also features [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YrzpoUjJ_0g a short scene]] where a pair of detectives attempt to interrogate the crew of an international freighter, only for all the crewmen to start claiming that they don't speak English. None of what they say in their various native languages gets translated for us.
