Next: Resurrected Television Shows
1. THE WIRE
You may have heard of this one. Like "Breaking Bad", "The Wire" is one of the most talked about and referenced TV shows in the world despite wrapping up its fifth and final season in 2008. Even if you’ve never seen an episode, you probably know names like Omar and McNulty just through pop culture osmosis.
Although it did just fine during its original HBO run, the fact that you can gorge on the whole series at once is actually preferable. No need to wait a week to find out what happens – this is like page-turner TV you can now actually keep turning at your own speed. Complex, funny, brutal, and so engrossing you may forget there’s a world outside of Baltimore’s mean streets once you get started.
