TV SHOWS I MISS

Again, I agree. We were visiting friends in Baltimore and they took us to Fells Point to where the show was filmed. They were working that day and we got to watch three of the "detectives" walk in and out of headquarters. Then we went across t street to Munch's bar and I bought a T-shirt, which I still have.

I miss the characters almost more than the plots.

The one that stands out in my memory was the once with Andre Braugher and Vincent D'Nofrio, where he plays an obnoxious guy who has somehow managed to get pinned between the train and the platform. Stunning acting from both of them.

I don't remember this one at all, not even hearing about it or seeing a promo for it.

The series or the episode, Rick? The series was on for seven seasons and a wrap-up movie...while the subway victim episode was the subject of an episode pf FRONTLINE, the PBS documentary series...it was the episode they chose to follow from script to airing, as a means of covering the series. It was my favorite series while it was on, but the episodes where Pembleton was not treated as the star of the show were better. Essentially the same folks were responsible for THE CORNER, THE WIRE and TREME on HBO, and highly overlapping groups for OZ and COPPER, among others. The much-hyped Robin Williams episode was probably the weakest in the run...stunts didn't work so well on this series.

I'm tempted to buy the box set of HOMICIDE DVDs.

OZ, even with a musical episode, is Not a cheery series.
