    I just wanted to know if anyone else watched my favorite TV show of all time, Homicide. I want this puppy on DVD in complete seasons so bad I can taste it, but I know it's not likely to ever happen. Living in Baltimore, I periodically pass by the station and the Waterfront and get a little melancholy about a great TV show that seemingly nobody watched.

    I watched every episode. And if you get Court TV, it's on perpetual reruns.

    This is hands down one of the best TV series ever produced - its a shame that NYPD Blue took all the attention for best cop show in the 90's while this show seemed to fade out. The writing and acting were nothing short of spectacular; there was a tremendous amount of continuity, the characters were very real. Hopefully it'll live on in syndication for quite some time (Canadians can catch it on "Bravo" Monday - Thursday at 1am Atlantic Time).

    I never understood why viewers would choose NYPD over Homicide. Homicide was one of the best series on TV. NYPD is mediocre in comparison.

    I have seen every episode and I would buy the entire series on DVD in a heartbeat.

    Finally my cable company has added Court TV.

    Now I can watch Homicide again!

    Incredible show.

    Any rumors of a DVD release?

    I always watched both.

    Best Interrogation scene ever: Andre Braugher vs. James Earl Jones.

    I also Loved this show but lost interest during the last year when te quality deteriorated, and Braugher left. I never even watched the Final Movie, all thou I'll pick it up on DVD someday.

    Just wanted to resurrect this thread and say that Court TV is airing the series from the beginning starting tonight (1am). I for one have only seen a few, albeit great, episodes so I’m looking forward to watching it from the start.

    Watching Homicide from the start is a great experience. It's the only way to really appreciate the long-term storylines.

    I'd buy season sets of Homicide in a heartbeat. In particular, a set of seasons one and two would be great -- extremely high quality throughout and cheap, because those two seasons only had about 13 episodes between them.

    Those of you who loved Homicide might want to check out The Wire, the new series from David Simon on Sundays at 10 on HBO. Very Homicide-ish, filmed in Baltimore.

    Hey, wait to resurrect an ancient thread, I think this was my very first thread here on HTF. Aaaaaah the memories!!! Thanks for the headups, I missed the first few seasons as I wasn't old enough to handle this type of show when it first aired.

    Thanks for the welcome to the forum Andrew, and yes, it's one of my favorite shows, too. My wife and I watch tapes of the show and try to identify the locales on screen. So much of it was shot in our neighborhood we can track the changes since it aired. Strange to watch a video journal of my home town this way.

    And yes, it's a crying shame this hasn't made it to DVD.

    Best

    Mike
