In the six years that have passed since the conclusion of the HBO series The Wire, the critically acclaimed drama has turned into a worldwide phenomenon that has been hailed as “one of the best and most original series on television in decades” by the New York Times. Now, new and old fans of the series can watch the show like never before thanks to a brand new High-Definition upgrade of all 60 episodes, which will debut in December on HBO Signature® and HBO GO®. The Wire: The Complete Series will be available to own on Digital HD Monday, January 5, 2015 and on Blu-rayTM in Summer 2015.

Smashed The Sopranos again after the HD release in 2014. Sepinwall said HBO is planning to release The Wire soon. He told that a year ago :facepalm:

I love it. Can't remember seeing a better drama show like this. Def the best crime show I've seen yet. Need to watch the other HBO classics also.

I can see why Aidan Gillen got cast as Littlefinger now Laughing

This show has so many levels of storytelling and critique of American society that it eclipses everything else I've seen on tv in that regard.

Had some huge deaths spoiled for me, some of which, just made them even more powerful, because everything was written so well that you could see from the emotion how it fit with the hopeless of the whole war on drugs and the consequences it has on American society.

Probably the best show I've ever watched. Don't know about favourite show, but it's up there. If there was a single show in history I wish I could've written, it was this one. Amazing.

Favourite character overall must be McNuty and Stringer Bell though. But there's so many great ones ffs. Omar, Bodie, Bunk, Lester, Bubbles. Carver also really grew on me the longer I went through the seasons.

Wasn't a huge fan of Daniels, the actor looks like a legit robot, but that kind of fit with his personality. But I didn't buy the charisma his character seemed to should have

Is it ok if I skip S2? I've watched 3 episodes now and literally nothing is happening. Everything at the docks is just incredibly boring me. It's come to the point that I can't be bothered to pick it up again.

I loved the first season so it's really strange how the quality dropped so quick.

Loved every season. I'd suggest you keep going. Some important stuff in it for McNulty's character later on etc.

I'm still very much intrigued about the Barksdale case and all that stuff but it's tough when I know they'll probably keep showing the damn docks storyline again for 70% of the episodes.

I want to see more of the old cast again, more of Kima, Herc, Omar, the polish detective. I don't think they have even shown Carver so far smh.

There's a new case every season, so don't expect season 1 to continue on a big scale.

I've finally pushed myself to watch some more episodes of the 2nd season, the OG team is finally (nearly Laughing) back. RIP D'Angelo Sad

Stringer Bell continues to be my favourite character with Omar and McNulty.

Also appreciating the docks storyline more and more as I keep watching. Frank is getting into some deep shit because of his dealings with the Greek. I'm sensing a Varga situation like in Fargo, but I'm pretty sure Frank and the dock "family" will co-operative with the police at some point and take the Greek down.

I thought season 2 was weak at first but when I saw the ending montage, I realized how good it was. It basically shows why there is so much crime in Baltimore (and by extension, America) and how drugs came to the city. On my rewatch it was probably my favorite season after season 4.

1. The Sopranos
2. The Wire
3. GoT
4. Justified
5. Breaking Bad

(imo don't @ me)

This show is the perfect example of brilliant writing and character building. So gritty and true to the city of Baltimore. I enjoyed how every season focused on a different layer of crime in Baltimore, be it the streets, the docks, the corrupt political elite. I didn't like the delve into journalism as much. It was definitely interesting in the way that everything the Wire did was but it didn't live up to the first four seasons.

Omar >> pretty much any other character in television history

All in the game, yo.

good list besides GoT

since you seem to be watching shows lately check out The Shield @MJ another GOAT lvl show, also has Boyd from Justified as a main character

I remember watching The Wire and The Shield back to back in 2008 or 2009 and not being able to decide which one was better

nah imo GoT is worthy of top 5 lists. It could very well fall out of that list like TWD did out of my top 100 though depending on the last two seasons.

Been watching a ton of shows over the past couple of years and I thought about watching the Shield as well. Problem is I've been watching so many shows that cover organized crime and the line between justice and morality and yada yada yada. Also, I'm not a big fan of case-of-the-week formula shows. I could be off but I feel like there's a grind involved in getting into that show.
