This episode blew me away.
16 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After The Wire ended in 2008, I was immediately desperate to find quality entertainment to occupy my TV time. Being a huge David Simon fan, I looked for anything he was associated with. I am ashamed to say that it was only then that I became familiar with Homicide: Life on the Street. I find it hard believe that this wasn't on my radar in the 90s. Yes, there were plenty of great television shows during that era but I honestly can't think of one that tops this series.

The series has a plethora of riveting episodes but this one really stands out. The writing and direction is absolutely fantastic. As another reviewer pointed out, this episode (and series as a whole) definitely set the standard for many current television dramas. It would be a disservice not to mention the acting. All of the principal actors are superb and each get a chance to shine in any respective episode. Andre Braugher and Kyle Secor truly shine in this episode. A brilliant performance is also given by guest star Moses Gunn.
