Robert Ellison: The instant they pulled the trigger I lost my wife, but I joined a club. It's a very exclusive club. But the funny thing about the club is that none of the members want to belong. It's like some sort of secret society where only the initiated can recognize the other members.

Kudos on every level
28 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just seized on the opportunity to re-view this brilliant episode (2008) for the first time since it knocked me over during the 1994 season of Homicide--and it was as beautifully acted and directed, and as keenly painful, as I remembered it. Skillful interweaving of the stories of two families cheated out of all the possibilities; stark representation of what it must be like for "laypeople" to experience the workings of a weary, slightly burned-out homicide detective squad. Why wasn't this memorable episode even nominated for a single Emmy Award? It should have captured a number of them, particularly Robin Williams, Melissa Leo, Director Gyllenhall, and the screenwriters.
