Superb writing, acting, directing and everything else

I remember seeing this episode when it first aired. I thought this was a very fine series, but this episode stuck in my head for years. And when I watched it again a couple of weeks ago, this time uninterrupted by commercials, I was still stunned and had to look at a blank wall for a bit. This episode has to be the finest work ever done on Network television. It rises way above entertainment and leaves one speechless and pondering how fragile life can be. And it just doesn't go away. Whether you like that kind of thing or not, I know I do. It's a credit to everyone who was involved with this show. "Homicide: Life on the Streets" raised the bar for police dramas to an unattainable height for others in its wake. You can say that "The Wire" surpassed this series, but it could be debatable only because the focus in The Wire was not just the police but was far more diverse and gave us a clearer picture of society.
