Excellent show - many aspects contribute
on 25 March 2009
This is based on the TV show - not on the DVD release, as it is not available at the time the review is written.
One of my best shows - why?
a) every situation is shown from multiple point of views - and we know what led to the hostage situation (usually this is just another somebody's tragedy). It does make it very difficult to judge or want the sniper to pull the trigger
b) the role of the negotiator (and also the price he pays for his role) is excellent and very rarely (if ever) shown as it is here
c) the sniper - when he pulls the trigger and kills - he has then his own hell to go through (not only the investigation but all the emotions inside him). This is not just a happy trigger like in most of these action movies.
d) all the above contributes to a very high emotional load in each episode - each of them leaves a trace in you - wondering what I would do if was in this situation...tough.
Highly recommended - to all.
