    Description'How good is "The Wire"? Put it this way: "The Wire's" so good, I've lost count of the number of people who've approached or emailed me just to thank me for convincing them to watch it. "The Wire's" so good, I'm jealous of anyone who hasn't seen it yet, because they get to discover it anew. "The Wire's" so good, it's come to an end. Because that's what good things do, the bastards.' - Charlie Brooker writing in the "Guardian". Multi-layered, morally-challenging, action-packed - "The Wire" is an epic novel in the form of a TV programme. Nothing like it has been made before and - to its millions of fans - nothing as good will ever be made again. A cult hit in the US and the UK, it is a show that prompts endless debate. Is Omar Little the coolest criminal since Robin Hood? Which series has the best theme tune? Will Bubbles survive Baltimore? Avon or Stringer? How does McNulty have so much success with women? With the show now over, these and hundreds of other questions are debated in this brilliant collection of features and comments from the "Guardian's Wire Re-up" blog. Together with interviews with the show's creators and stars, 'running totals' per episode and a quiz created by the stars themselves, this book will guarantee you that one last fix you've been craving.
