5 Things We Learned at The Wire Reunion: Will the Show Ever Come Back?

In an age where television is dominated by reboots, re-imaginings and "event series" sequels, there is at least one acclaimed show you shouldn't expect to see back on your TV screen: HBO's The Wire.

Despite being considered by critics and legions of adoring fans (many of whom never watched the show during its actual low-rated run) to be the greatest TV drama of all time, co-creator and executive producer David Simon made it abundantly during a reunion panel at New York PaleyFest Thursday night that he has no interest in...read more

Weekend TV Review: Mockingbird Lane and Other Treats (Not All Halloween)

While Tim Burton was busy remaking Dark Shadows on the big screen this year — and what a disappointment that turned out to be — another '60s cult item, the horror parody The Munsters, was getting a lavish reboot from Burton's TV counterpart Bryan Fuller, whose Pushing Daisies remains a fantastical benchmark of blending the whimsical and the macabre into a dazzling visual smorgasbord.

I'm so excited for The Wire ...

Question: I'm so excited for The Wire to start, I can barely stand it. I'd cancel my own wedding if it conflicted. Any scoop?

Answer: The first four episodes are better than ever (or so TV Guide's Bruce Fretts tells me).
