We all know what it’s like to be shamed by our peer group for failing to watch a certain TV show. And even though it’s been off the air for well over ten years, HBO‘s original series The Wire is probably the source of more of this variety of shame than any other series. Now, even HBO itself is getting in on the shame party with a new trailer advertising the complete series, which happens to be available on HBO NOW.
Even if you’ve already seen The Wire, this trailer is still worth a look, since it generously portions characters and dialogue from all five seasons into one two and a half minute highlight reel. It was probably designed to act as a final straw to get people interested in this show to dive in, though, so if that describes you watch it at your own peril.
No matter what your current relationship to The Wire is, you can see the new trailer for it below. And to check it out as well as the rest of the stash on HBO NOW, head over to the service’s official site right here.
