The best The Wire episode so far.
13 July 2011 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

I started watching The Wire last month, i can see why season 4 that much critically acclaimed. Because it's a magnificent season, with the one of the best story and writings on a TV show.

Misgivings, alone has been a highlight of the season and the best one i saw of 10 episodes. Addictive, sentimental, cold. All of them combined in this masterpiece episode. The kids' acting skills are growing more and more. And whoever played Michael was great in Misgivings.

The last scene couldn't be more beautiful and effective as Michael's look on his mom. And Chris beating the s**t out of Michael's dad. I'm sure the last three episodes will be as good as this one. Actually deserves an Emmy for best writing. 10/10.
