If anyone in your life has yet to watch The Wire, the time has come for you to do your duty.

Beginning on Thursday with the very first episode, HBO Signature will re-air one episode of the critically-acclaimed show every single weeknight at 8 p.m. This is not a typical broadcast, however; each episode has been fully remastered and will be presented for the first time ever in HD.
