  9. ToKo1188 /

    Come on HBO! Release it on Blu-Ray already!!! How long do we have to wait?

  10. D.j. West /

    The Wire, Mr. Show, The Larry Sanders Show, Seinfeld, Monty Python’s Flying Circus, all great TV shows that need Blu-Ray re-releases.

  11. Matheus /

    That’s a shame. In Brazil there is no way to find The Wire, and if I buy those dvd’s there’s no subtitle in Portuguese. Oh god.

  14. Where is the Bluray option?!?

    • I guess the title is a bit misleading. No blu-ray yet! HBO takes their time with these releases. Expect it at some point but as of now it isn’t available on DVD.

      • The Code /

        yea so this is for sure thing that The Wire is going to be released on Blu-ray right ? I just don’t see why it hasn’t been released already long time ago.. conspiracy to hold urban television back from sales to coming into the home of affluent white americans ? if not what other reason is there ? hbo puts their crapiest quality of work on blu-ray but can’t put award winning series like The Wire on Blu-ray… in the words of Clay Davis – ” Shiiiiieeet ” !

        • baron /

          Wearing a tinfoil hat are we?

        • Mohammed Farhat /

          The reason being is that the show is shot in 4:3 ration and there it is not worth the hassle of editing it for HD, it seems that this work of art will be forever under apprciated and that’s not a bad thing either.

          • MessyEater /

            4:3 doesn’t stop something from getting a Blu-ray release, there a good number of examples. The Wire was purposely never intended to be shown in HD, it was purposely shown originally in 4:3 SD, to drill home that it is a TV show & it isn’t trying to be a “hi-tech” feature film. it’s part of the broader by the The Wire to subvert the normal stylistic exposition & exploration in storytelling.

            Though it has aired in HD, so I’d suspect it will eventually come to Blu-ray.

          • It was also 2002 :)

      • I’m sure mentioning Blu-ray helps your SEO juice, but its really dishonest.

  15. Hello, is the wire ever going to be released in Bluray?
