Goofs

While 1963 gas prices at gas stations was correctly shown on station billboards as being 25 cents, the boards all read 025. In 1963, no one believed gas prices would ever hit a dollar. Most gas pumps could not even sell gas for over 99 cents, so gas prices would never be displayed with a "0" before the 25. See more »

Quotes

Lt. Mike Torello: Where were you Monday night, Pauli?
Pauli Taglia: Home, watching skin flicks with my wife.
Lt. Mike Torello: Spend a lot of time with her, because you're going away real soon.

Great Acting
31 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

How they can cancel this show after only 2 short seasons is mystifying to me. It's just too bad they don't have this high quality of television programing today. Now I am quite aware that the "Law and Order"/ "CSI" shows seem to be very popular and I certainly do not wish to demoralize those of you who are faithful viewers of these programs. However, even with the addition of Dennis Farina on "Law & Order" and the inclusion of William Petersen on CSI, still in the genre of Crime story dramas, it doesn't get any better than the 44 episodes of "Crime Story". Mr Farnia's and the late Mr. Ray Sharkey's acting skills are quite event in those programs. How sad was my world when it was cancelled. The world of TV programing is all the worse for the loss of this excellent crime story drama.
