Possibly the best Wire ever...?
2 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Wire's fourth season has been pretty incredible... These last few episodes have been building and building, and here in Misgivings (4.10) it seems as if the show has reached it's peak.

I don't know if the future episodes will reach this height, but as of now, this is probably the best episode of The Wire ever. I feel bad for taking a break out of the marathon to write a review on this episode alone, but I wanted to say just how incredible it has been so far, knowing that most likely it will continue this peak in the final three episodes of the season. The ending of this episode is perhaps it's most memorable ever, if not the most then definitely up there. If 3.11 got a writing Emmy nod, why didn't this?
