I’m with Russ on this one. Homicide was great until they started brining in what I term “pretty people” for the detectives. Plus I’ve lived around Baltimore so I’m a bit biased. It wasn’t for Homicide I’d have voted for the Wire. Sadly I have no cable, so I wait until it comes out on dvd to see the new season.
Thank you Patrick. Sledge is the true american cop.
And my own preference, since the statist L&O is on the list, would be to include Perry Mason. Isn’t it humerous how every lawyer show on TV is now a prosecutor’s show. Can’t even find Perry Mason reruns, to tough to edit the show down to the slider size of the current “hour” TV show.
