Homicide: Life on the Street
This series was purchased because I became aware of it in the process of checking out the HBO series The Wire. Both take place in Baltimore - an area very familiar to me and geographically close. As expected, this series is inferior to The Wire in a number of ways: the video is of a MUCH lower quality; the videotography is extremely amateurish, unless it was meant to be that way to intensify the "immediacy" of the drama and the familiar faces from other shows, particularly Ned Beatty, who while doing an excellent job, is someone whose rotund affability is always overdone and distracting! The most important message of Homicide...is the same as The Wire: The tragidy of the black people, as a race, being evidently quite content in both doing this sort of brutal semiethnic cleansing and that it doesn't seem to bother or upset even those not even distantly involved in it - even the black police who are - at least in these stories - almost complacent about the horific things being done to their own and are really enabling it. It will never to be possible to convince me that as Bill Cosby puts it so well - the Black people in this country have done far more damage to their own people than all the White people since day one have even coceived of doing!Read full review

A Fantastic Show
Without a doubt, Homicide Life on the Street was one of the best shows on television. Season 1 and 2 were absolutely phenominal... the writing was fantastic and Andre Braugher was amazing as Pembleton. Homicide is an all-time great that belongs in everyone's dvd collection.

"Homicide" is also painless.
This is as good as TV ever gets, what a cast of characters !
The plots and subplots started in the first 2 seasons weave thoughout
the series 7 year run, culminating with the great wrap-up movie.
Andre Braugher as Frank Pembleton,, wow.
"the big man"
"Megan AND Felton"
and the real star of the show, Baltimore.
Don't be put off by the camera work, it grows on you and adds to the drama.

Homicide, Life on the Street Season 1&2
This was one of the best Police Dramas on television back in the early 90's.
This show paved the way for shows like Law&Order, CSI, and few others.
The best feature of this television show in my opinion was how the show gave a
human feel to Police work, specifically Homicide detectives.
Not only did it show the effect a death had on victims but it also showed how
passionate Homicide detectives are in finding/solving the murders/deaths.
My favorite character on this show was Frank Pembleton, he was always very passionate and always did everything with an exclamation point! The actor Andre Braugher, is a Chicago native and is definitely one of the best actors of the show.
