Homicide Jumps the Shark, 12 Aug 2005
Having waited seven years to see the final series of the greatest cop show ever made (Channel 4 never screened it in the UK)it's something of a let down. Andre Braugher is sorely missed and Kyle Secor (Det Pembleton) is sidelined in favour of newer cast members. There is as much emphaisis on the characters' sex lives as there is on solving murders and the plots themselves are barely on a par with other US cop shows like Law & Order.
If you've never seen Homicide then buy the early series - they are fantastic. If you're a completist then prepare for disapointment. On the plus side, the main DVD extra, a panel discussion with writers and producers, is excellent.
