Stakeout is a gem, a character driven episode which sums up the whole
series. The Homicide Squad sets up a stakeout to catch a murderer: the
script focuses on the interplay between detectives, as they muse over
their job and personal lives. Writing is excellent, with vivid
dialogues which sharply define every character.
As hours pass by, problematic Bayliss (Kyle Secor) thinks about quitting Homicide, and his cold partner Pembleton (Andre Braugher) is both irked and concerned; cynical Munch (Richard Belzer) comments on his disappointment about friends and people in general; captain "Gee" Giardello (Yaphet Kotto) realizes he is probably going to miss his daughter's wedding, which he wasn't sure he wanted to attend in the first place.
Captivating, expertly paced, directed with a sure hand by veteran John McNaughton, Stakeout is one of the best episodes of the series.
