Storyline

probably the best episode so far
5 November 2011 | by (Lithuania) – See all my reviews

Greetings from Lithuania.

"Witness" is probably the best episode of this truly great, realistic and gritty TV show, although i've really liked "Mission Creep" as well. Acting here is strong as always and Jim Caviezel steels the show as always. And this episode is soooo intense, action starts from the first second and keeps going till the end.

And what a great twist at the, didn't really saw that coming.

Really looking forward to the next episode of this extremely good TV show and actually, the best TV show in 2011.Jonathan Nolan and J.J.Abrams have created a truly original show.
