Are you one of those impatient sorts who like to "read ahead" and cue up your The Wire episodes before the rest of the class? If so, I have a bit of frustrating news. HBO wants you to know that the series finale, airing March 9, will not be made available via HBO On Demand the previous Monday, as has been the practice throughout the season. In other words, it all comes to an end on March 9, at 9 pm/ET - for everybody.
