An Unnecessary But Nevertheless Fond Farewell
13 November 2003 | by See all my reviews

In the UK Channel 4 used to show Homicide but gave up on the whole project about four years ago and never showed series 7 or the movie. Now, thanks to the Hallmark Channel, UK viewers have had a chance to see the whole series from beginning to end and the final movie.

To me, the movie doesn't really work. The story is just an excuse to bring the characters back together and frankly misfires a little, having one of the show's best, Giardello, out cold for most of its length and unable to interact with anyone. I was also a little uncomfortable with the appearance of Adina Watson, given that the case was based on a real life tragedy. Still, it was nice to see Jon Polito and Daniel Baldwin back from the dead.

Season 7 turned out to be far better than I was expecting, having read some fairly awful things about it on the internet. The final episode wrapped things up beautifully, mirroring and reversing the events of the very first as Tim Bayliss packed his things and quietly walked out of the Unit. The movie just wasn't needed.
