The Wire - HBO

Recommended Posts

given my love for most things Simon...have not embraced the New Orleans themed show yet. I will say this... Generation Kill is superb but not for watching with the spouse.

I agree. Treme irritates me. I feel like I'm being preached to for an hour.

That's what I don't like about Treme. I was wondering about that.

Well, that and the fact that I am not interested in the culture of New Orleans. I find it simultaneously cloying and boring.

Michael K. Williams is without question a great talent but his range is limited to that of a Daisy Air Rifle (to steal one from Dennis Miller)

Finally finished watching The Wire tonight, can't believe I never watched this show before now. Easily one of the best shows I've watched.

My wife and I polished off the whole series in a couple of months during the winter. I'm glad I discovered it eventually, even though I didn't catch it as it was happening. It belongs in the conversation about the Greatest TV Series In History.

So happy I discovered this show. So many pop culture references floating out there.

s4 was my favorite - really liked how they followed the school system.

I'm just starting season 4 after binge watching the first 3. Quite a show. I think I'm a bit burned out, so taking a break, but I'm sure I'll finish it in the next few weeks. Great writing and I'm glad it isn't as TV like as the other crap out there. It is fitting to see all of the OZ characters in it too. (I just finished watching all of OZ again)

Yeah, The Wire is a tough show to binge watch. I think it really helps if you give yourself some time with it, because the writing is so good and characters so complex. Gives you a lot to think about.

This is correct. My wife and I would watch one or two each night, and it took us over a month to get through it, but it was the right way to approach it. I may sherpa her through Breaking Bad the same way this winter.

They are going to re-master it in HD.

HBO is re-mastering 'The Wire' | Inside TV | EW.com

Finally. The HD versions hit HBO on December 26th.

The Wire Being Remastered, Rebroadcast in HD

UPDATE: HBO has finally given us a premiere date for The Wire HD! THE DAY AFTER CHRISTMAS 2014! December 26th, that is. Here’s the info straight from HBO:

The Wire: The Complete Series in HD will be available for the first time as a full series purchase at iTunes, Google Play, X-Box Video and Vudu on January 5. Individual episodes and seasons will be available through all of HBO’s Digital HD retailers.

To celebrate the HD launch, HBO Signature will air the entire series consecutively, one season per day starting with season 1 on Friday, December 26 at noon. The marathon will wrap with season 5 on Tuesday, December 30.

This will be the first time The Wire has aired on a linear HBO channel since Season 5 wrapped in 2008, as well as the first time that all five seasons of the entire series have aired consecutively on the network.

All 60 episodes will also be available in HD on HBO GO starting December 26.

No word on the Blu-Ray set just yet. Maybe someday.
