Homicide was show that made you think
4 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Baltimore had safe places and places you wouldn't want to be caught dead in. The show depicts Baltimore to a tee. It keeps the people involved in the show aware of Baltimore customs, look, and dialects. Balt-i-mer..Balt-i-mo.. etc. 50's look slick hair, curlers with scarfs in Highlandtown to Dundalk. Baltimore was called Pigtown because farmers raised Pigs way back when.

The show depicts Baltimore pretty well. It makes you think and pay attention to the actors and actresses closely and in doing so draws you into the story. The show is sorely missed and I wish it was back on TV. We can only wish it will be shown on a station during prime time and not 1 am in the morning. Most TV these days only puts me to sleep.
