There are two kinds of television viewers: those who love The Wire, and those whose friends are still yelling at them to sit down and watch it already. If you’re the former, take a break from evangelizing about “the best show of all time” tonight to catch up with its cast and creator.

At 7:30 ET, David Simon, the creative force behind the Baltimore-set crime series, which ran on HBO from 2002 to 2008, will reunite with actors Wendell Pierce, Sonja Sohn, Seth Gilliam, Jim True-Frost, John Doman, Lawrence Gilliard Jr., Michael Kenneth Williams, and Jamie Hector for a panel at PaleyFest, an annual event held at New York’s Paley Center for Media. Dominic West, who played Detective Jimmy McNulty, will appear in a video intro.

How can you watch? Just click this Yahoo link and let the Internet do the rest. And if the thought of a reunion without Stringer Bell (Idris Elba), Cedric Daniels (Lance Reddick), Lester Freamon (Clarke Peters), Avon Barksdale (Wood Harris), the Greek (Bill Raymond), Snoop (Felicia Pearson), Herc (Domenick Lombardozzi), Bunny Colvin (Robert Wisdom), or Clay Davis (Isiah Whitlock Jr.) doesn’t tempt you, there’s other great stuff already available, including panels on Bob’s Burgers, The Walking Dead, Archer, and Law & Order: SVU.

Of course, if you’d rather just fire up HBO Go—soon to be a standalone service!—and relive your favorite episodes, that’s perfectly understandable. All in the game, yo.
