I seriously can't breathe properly right now. This is just--perfect. Like, I am blown away and kind of crying. I will return and say more specific things when I ever recover, I promise. Right now what's grabbing me the most is the repetition of "we got another thing coming undone," all the people and attachments and crises that cycle through his life and how he keeps TRYING.

This is the most awesome gift, and you are awesome, and I can't wait to download this. Perhaps I will pass the time by rewatching the entire series, as I now so badly want to do.

I'm so glad it worked for you! Meldrick's been through so much and he keeps coming back and doing his job and he's kind of awesome that way. (I highly recommend a rewatch, it's still so, so good.)

I can only agree with what everyone else has said because, otherwise I'm just... =0 wow. Wow.

Good God, but I miss this show, miss them.

Thank you for the visceral reminder of how awesome these characters were.

I know what you mean about missing them and being reminded how awesome. When I was rewatching this (on a strict timeline!) to make the vid, I just want to watch everything over and over again. I miss them.

Thanks so much for your comments.

OMG Meldrick! He was so awesome, in many ways kind of the strongest through-line of the series, and this vid is just a perfect look at him. Great song choice, too, and the white-board credits were brilliant.

From: [identity profile] barkley.livejournal.com
Thanks so much! He does have the through-line beings as he was there in the beginning scene and there in the end. (And so much stuff happened between those points, but he was still there, trudging away, searching for that bullet.)

I'm not much of a vid person--this one blew me away. Perfectly paced, perfect music, brought so many emotions back that I turned around and described the entire series to a friend of mine.

Oh, vidder unknown to me, more please.

Thank you! It's so easy to fall in love with this series over and over again. I know the feeling.

From: [personal profile] chaila
Another one for not knowing the show but finding this really powerful and moving. Your editing is really nice, great choices on where to linger and picking out expressions. There's a great sense of the job under his skin that I know from The Wire and is really painfully well done here.

I am so glad you enjoyed this without knowing the character! It's good to know the emotions came through. Thanks!
