    Great news for The Wire fans!
    The show has been remastered (finally) to HD and true widescreen (from the original film - not zoom, pan and scan).
    Great post on why the original was filmed in 4/3 and the process of updating it - from David Simon..

    Best show ever (I know, I'm really breaking new ground with that claim ha)

    Most likable character: Bunny Colvin (who, along with Bunk is possibly the only truly likable person on the show)

    Least likable: the idiot Stringer Bell (one of the slimier villains to ever grace the screen)

    Underrated as a total douche: Herc

    I've seen the Bunny Colvin actor here in Franklin several times over the past few years. Not sure what he's doing in these parts..

    My favorite ongoing Wire characters are Bunk and Omar.
    Slim Charles is up there w Bodie...

    I'm just started binge watching this over the holidays. We are in the middle of season 3. Certainly a good show. Best ever? Not for me, but certainly well worth watching.

    One person that bothers me...the guy playing James McNulty. I just don't think he is very good.

    There's a long list of great characters and great quotes.

    Bodie, Prop Joe, Brother Mouzon, Omar, Slim, Bubbs, Bunk, and several others are great characters but I think my favorite may be Lester Freamon.

    "You're equivocating like a mother f***er."

    That line gets me everytime for some reason.
