Reviews

All 22 episodes from the sixth season of the gritty, realistic and darkly humorous detective drama set in a tough homicide department in Baltimore. The show developed a trademark feel and look by portraying the life of an inner-city detective as it really is: repetitive, spiritually draining and completely without glamour. The episodes comprise: 'Blood Ties: Part 1', 'Blood Ties: Part 2', 'Blood Ties: Part 3', 'Birthday', 'Baby, It's You: Part 2', 'Saigon Rose', 'Subway', 'All Is Bright', 'Closet Cases', 'Sins of the Father', 'Shaggy Dog, City Goat', 'Something Sacred: Part 1', 'Something Sacred: Part 2', 'Lies and Other Truths', 'Pit Bull Sessions', 'Mercy', 'Abduction', 'Full Court Press', 'Strangled, Not Stirred', 'Secrets', 'Finnegan's Wake', 'Fallen Heroes: Part 1' and 'Fallen Heroes: Part 2'.

I have now watched every episode of Homicide Life on the Street and it certainly is a great and satisfying show. Series six is the weakest of the seasons with the newer characters not as good as the classic characters. It is however still worth watching if you've enjoyed the other seasons as it still has some good episodes and the newer cast are still good enough, just not as memorable as the classic cast. Highlights include a two parter where Kellerman returns and the final episode is strong and worth seeing. Munch is still excellent and given alot more screen time than he ever seems to get on Law and Order:SVU. Bayliss has an interesting arc throughout this season with his ideas, feelings and world view changing throughout. Meldrick has some tensions with a new partner and Giadello has his FBI son joining the Homicide squad. It's probabaly good the show finished at this point, but I'll miss this show and the characters and will almost certainly watch alot of it again some day.

Initially disappointing (what, yet another attractive woman joins the squad?) Series 6 soon settles down into a satisfying rhythm, with many top-notch episodes. Regulars Tim Bayliss, John Munch and Meldrick Lewis are still present, and Lewis in particular gets more airtime than in any previous series (no bad thing). New detectives Rene Shepperd and Mike Giardello are rather awkward at first, but by the final curtain call we are as sad to say goodbye to them as the rest of the cast. Yes, there are a few duff episodes - some of the early ones (featuring identical twins, a missing best-selling thriller writer) are more like the sort of crimes that would given to Lt Columbo rather than our cynical Homicide Dept. But by episode 8, and with the reappearance of Mike Kellermen, the plots have taken a turn for the better, and some of the later episodes are as gritty as any in previous years. All in all, a fitting final season to a superb TV series.

Homicide is the take-off to a new level for police series. Yes, NYPDblue and Hill Street Blues are ok. But with Homicide and later The Wire we have a new starting point. It's like The Band's music. There's everything before and everything after.

I first watched Homicide Life On The Streets when Channel 4 broadcast it in the UK in the 1990s. It disappeared without warning and without trace, but I became aware of it again while watching The Wire. Without Homicide The Wire would not have come into being. So I bought the entire boxed set (six series in the UK, seven in the US). My wife and I watched it earlier this year, from start to finish. It is simply, for the most part, superb, and it is interesting to see how some scenes were re-used in The Wire. I recommend this series unreservedly to anyone who enjoys a good cop show. This, like The Wire, stands out a mile from the crowd. My only problem now is how to access Homicide The Movie, which never seems to have been released in the UK.
