    • Amazing show indeed, not that of a great price. Especially seeing the way and format it was filmed, will blu ray really make it 'better'?

      thought the same thing, not sure if BR quality or upscaling would be beneficial. Although at this price, maybe still cheaper than just DVD (and don't mean the Amazon DVD pricing, but wondering if the box set is available in store).

      I really liked it at the time. But the pacing is quite slow. If you watch it again, I think you might change your mind on the rating. For me shows like Breaking Bad, GOT and Stranger Things rank higher.

      I am only on my first run through of the Wire, but the same can be said for Breaking Bad. Not the whole series, but I just rewatched it, binged completely... and there was the lull I remember in the first season (character development) that dragged and another spot, can't remember what season, that just didn't have the same ooomph that the majority of the series did. But you are right, there are some spots where the pace is slow in this too.
      As for Stranger Things I am going to have to go back, I stopped near the end of the season 1 and haven't missed it enough to finish or continue.

      It does. Fantastic mastering in terms of quality. Although originally intended to be watched in 4:3, the new 16:9 framing works for me overall. David Simon even talks about how 16:9 works better in some scenes.

      The picture quality gap alone is huge, and is enough to worth recommending the Blu-Ray version.

    • There are no words. Definitely a show I am going to rebinge. Very under rated show and worth a watch by everyone on the planet. You will be amazed at the stars on this show that are on some of your other favorite shows. Hard to watch at points (gritty) but definitely worth your time.

      Omar coming..........!

      On Crave it is also in 16:9 and HD, I didn't realize that it was originally 4:3 but that makes sense given the timing of original airing. For me, the Crave subscription was more beneficial, as I have never watched the Sopranos either, so i am trying to catch up on a bunch of classic stuff. As well, Kidding is on there now.

      That can apply to a lot of things. When you redo-rewatch-reattempt, things are not as exciting as previously. With all the shows coming out, all the movies i still havn't seen, I can't really justify re-watching an epic series like that (same with the sopranos).

    • Anyone watched Southland, is it comparable? I've heard lots of good reviews on Wire but never sat down to watch it properly. Maybe I should now.

      Replay value is insane on this show! It's written by multiple authors and field experts (actual teachers, police, police reporters, corner-boys). Through the first go, you're rooting for McNulty, Stringer, Carcetti, and all the people who are trying to affect change. Watch it a second time, and you'll see every character in a different light. Avon, Bunk, Slim Charles, become The show is heavily realistic on capitalism and what happens to anyone who try to give a **** when it's not their turn to give a ****. You either get steam-rolled if you get in the way, or you become part of the system. Charlie Brooker's Black Mirror episode 15 Million Merits is heavily inspired from this show. The show is mostly a depressingly real look on reality of living now, but there are beautiful moments that happen (Bubs!). I can only fault it for being too preachy in the allegory of the drug war to Iraq.

      If you're watching a first time, or second check out Alan Sepinwall's reviews. He did 2 editions. One for "noobs", and the other for "veterans". https://uproxx.com/sepinwall/the-wire-l ... y-episode/

      Shiieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet - grab it!

      I do really enjoy, and I will rewatch it, but not right away, too many other series to catch up on.

      Can't say if its comparable or not, but I LOVED Southland. Wish it was still on, another good gritty cop drama, with great production, research, etc.
      Where can you watch Southland, I'd watch that again too.

    • Finally. I had been waiting for a price drop because I had the DVD boxset and I just can't find it (out of 2000+ DVD's/BR's, that's the only thing missing, go figure...). I thought I'd lent it to someone but he said he gave it back. Anyway, it will be interesting to see this in BR in 16:9.

      FYI the slow pacing of this show is done on purpose. It's the closest to on screen literature you can get. It's essentially structured like a novel which allows for greater depth of writing/character development/storytelling. There are several interviews where creator/author David Simon describes the show as a "visual novel".
