HBO releases ‘The Wire’ in HD

As was prophesied earlier this month, HBO has released “The Wire” in widescreen HD on its HBO Signature channel (which is currently marathoning episodes) and in the HBO Go app.

It’s not a happy fun joyride by any means, but it’s still one of the best TV shows ever made. If you’re planning on watching (or rewatching), I highly recommend all of Alan Sepinwall’s reviews—which come in newbie and veteran editions—as great reading as you finish each episode.
