    I thought that I'd start this thread. I am under no illusions that virtually all of EG has probably seen all the 58 episodes. All the episodes of a show that started way back in 2002. But I will be trying my best to watch all the episodes and it will be cool to relieve the Wire magic with some of you guys. Who is with me?

    I'm with you brother. I know nothing about the programme other than it's meant to be very good, so I'm looking forward to it.

    11.20pm - just after Newsnight.

    Will be interesting to rewatch it at the once-a-week pace. I give it two weeks before I miss one and give up.

    Watched the first ep and it didn't catch my imagination, but I'm prepared to be wrong. Shame about the late night scheduling, but I do have Virgin so shouldn't be a problem to keep up.

    You'll probably all buy it on DVD btw. I'm going to watch it again from the start for the 3rd time.

    Hopefully by the time the 5th season is finished on BBC, the Complete 1-5 Season Boxset will be down from 86 to around 40

    I know. Crap time. No iPlayer support. But hey. What can you do? The show is worth it. I've actually seen all the episodes, but I want to see them all again. And I am going to be lo-tec and actually tape them all on my VCR. EP. Should be good.

    I agree, think I might re-watch at BBC pace though.

    Best news I've had all day! Loved the first three series, working my way through the fourth now. I'm also going to watch it again from the beginning on BBC.

    Got all seasons on DVD but i'm jealous of you all, watching it for the first time. I will say that you have to give it a few eps though, as it takes time for all the characters to bed in.

    this one is good quality

    Because you know, people worked really, really hard to make this show, and it's not exactly a runaway commercial success. Plus it's 16 quid you cheapskate.
