Quotes

Risley Tucker: You from Baltimore, right? Do you say BAWL-mer or BALL-di-more? Come on, say it. I'll tell you which neighborhood you're from. I rode the streets. I talk to people. Say Baltimore, and I'll tell you within ten blocks where you were born. Yeah, you from here. You got that home grown look. The not too southern, not too northern, not on the ocean but still on the water look. With maybe a touch of inbreeding.

Agree 100% with the other review.

If you're a fan of TV drama, this one episode set the mark for the next 20 years. Look at the best shows on TV--they are mostly on cable like The Wire, Breaking Bad, and The Killing to name a few. Go back 18 years and this episode explored the depth we see today. It must have blown viewers out of their couches in 1993!

Do yourself a favor and get this on DVD. Sit back and watch how we see TV drama. The experiment with the quick editing is in its raw form and can be annoying at time, but this was a new experiment at the time. It had to be perfected.
