Editorial Reviews

Considered the most realistic cop drama ever aired, Homicide: Life on the Street gives viewers a unique cops'-eye view of one of the most challenging jobs imaginable.

Created by Writer/Director Tom Fontana (St. Elsewhere, OZ) and Executive Producer Barry Levinson (The Perfect Storm, Oz) and based on David Simon's (The Wire) book Homicide: A Year on the Killing Streets, HOMICIDE features TV's most powerful ensemble cast, including Richard Belzer (Law and Order: Special Victims Unit), Emmy®-winner Andre Braugher (Thief, Frequency), Yaphet Kotto (Alien), and Ned Beatty (Deliverance) with guest appearances from James Earl Jones, Robin Williams, Steve Buscemi, Peter Gallagher, Chris Rock, Wilford Brimley, and other star actors.

HOMICIDE garnered two Emmy® Awards, three Peabody Awards, three Television Critics Awards, two Writers Guild Awards, and was named to TV Guide's "The Greatest Episodes in TV History" and "TV's Greatest Characters" lists.

Now, one of television's crowning achievements is available in its entirety on 35 DVDs and includes all 122 episodes spanning seven critically acclaimed seasons, the three Law & Order crossover episodes, and Homicide: The Movie.

There's really no need to expound on the fantastic qualities of "Homicide." Anyone who has seen the series or is contemplating purchasing it without ever having seen many episodes will know from other reviews how terrific it was. My chief concern when thinking of ordering the repackaged set concerned how it is packaged. Several other complete series editions (Sopranos, The Shield, etc.) have chosen to insert the DVDs into stiff and coarse cardboard slots. This has resulted in serious scuffs and scratches that have often rendered a disc (or multiple discs) unplayable. Not so with this set. Each season has been packaged in a slimline style case, and not one disc has so much as a smudge or mini-scratch on it. I'm looking at 35 pristine "mirrors." So, if anyone out there is debating whether or not to order this newest set of Homicide because of packaging concerns you are cleared for takeoff. It doesn't get any better than this. Go for it (and enjoy).

Even though the series has been off the air for going on eight years, "Homicide" is still very popular with serious web discussion forums of this series still going on.

This is the collection that every "Homicide: Life on the Street" fan has been waiting for. It include all 122 episodes of the seven seasons of the original series, the Law and Order cross-over episodes, plus the movie "Another Homicide" that aired in February 2000 and was the last we fans ever got to see of our beloved series. Also, it is much more reasonably priced than the other DVD collections of "Homicide" available up to now. The movie isn't even available on DVD.

For those of you who are unfamiliar, "Homicide" was an original crime drama that aired on NBC between January 1993 and May 1999. It was based on David Simon's book, "Homicide: A Year on the Killing Streets", which was based upon Simon's experiences in 1988 when he spent a year as a civilian assistant to the Baltimore Police Homicide Unit so that he could document what life was like in a big city homicide squad. His extensive notes, interviews, and observations were eventually published as the book.

Much of the cases chronicled in the first two seasons of the show are adapted from actual events in the book. The first two seasons focus on rookie Tim Bayliss's first case - the murder of 11 year-old Adina Watson whose murder is never solved and haunts him for the duration of the series. The original cast was truly brilliant, but to get a third full season the show's producers had to delete veteran actor Jon Polito (Crosetti) from the cast and pretty up the cast by adding Isabella Hoffman as shift supervisor Megan Russert.

The fourth season of Homicide is packed with all the things that make it great television; intelligent writing, complex characters, top-flight acting and unique photography. However, the drama is ratcheted up a notch, removing it somewhat from its book-based, slower-moving roots in the first season. It is also the year of the Dynamic Duo (Pembleton and Bayliss, plus Lewis and Kellerman.) Meldrick Lewis has been without a partner since the suicide of his former partner, Crosetti, in the show's third season. Enter Mike Kellerman (Reed Diamond), a hotshot detective from the Arson Squad who impresses Giardello and is transferred into the unit. Lewis and Kellerman find that they are a good fit and their light and breezy chemistry is a breath of fresh air in an often dark atmosphere. The two bring a spark of fun into work, as evidenced by such episodes as, "Full Moon," "I've Got a Secret," and most notably, "The Hat," in which they allow a seemingly harmless suspect to escape from custody over a dish of rice pudding. But the two have their differences as shown in, "Scene of the Crime," when they clash over the role of a Muslim neighborhood patrol group in the murder of a drug-dealer. Lewis and Kellerman would also have their first encounter with ruthless drug lord, Luther Mahoney in, "The Damage Done." Mahoney would turn out to be a major villain and would start a running plot thread that would last throughout the following two seasons. Meanwhile, the more philosophical, serious pair of Frank Pembleton and Tim Bayliss would face their own difficulties throughout the year. Bayliss is haunted by the unsolved Adena Watson case from the first season in, "Requiem for Adena," when he finds himself working on another child murder.Read more ›

I will warn you that this review contains spoilers.

This is the collection that every "Homicide: Life on the Street" fan has been waiting for - and got - back in 2006. For some reason it is being rereleased and repackaged. It includes all 122 episodes of the seven seasons of the original series, the Law and Order cross-over episodes, plus the movie "Another Homicide" that aired in February 2000 and was the last we fans ever got to see of our beloved series.

There was an entire episode, perhaps the best of the series, dedicated to detective Crosetti's suicide at the beginning of season three. Crosetti left no note, and apparently had no huge looming problems in his life.
