Stays with you LONG after you've sen it
1 July 2008 | by (Topeka,Kansas,USA) – See all my reviews

When WGN America first(?) broadcast this rerun last year,it fell on Christmas. Having seen this first-run and wanting to have a HAPPY Yule,I wisely chose to not watch this then.

I saw it more recently,and I have to say that I was stoked to catch it again,and just like the first time I saw it,it hit me about as hard as any TV show episode has ever done. THe story is pretty well established by now,so I'll save the synapses and just say that the interplay between and among Detectives Pembleton,Bayliss,Falson,Lewis and a subway victim(Vincent D'Onofrio,who had just scored earlier that year with his yucky,Kansas farmer-turned giant bug habitat in the blockbuster Men in Black),who is still alive because the subway car has pinned him and therefore he is kept from "snapping" at the spine is some of the finest that's been on television,particularly on network.

The nearly poetic,thoughtful and soberly grim telling of this case is something that is difficult to forget,and indeed is a practical workshop in character study. If this won any Emmys,they were greatly deserving. A good ten years had passed since I first saw this,but seeing it again felt as clear as a bell. If I get these shows on DVD,I'd be stoked to see the extras surrounding these eps,and this one in particular would be worth examining.
