Goofs

(around 9 min) into the show the young actor who is working in the morgue with Dr. Cox (Michelle Forbes) is taking pictures of the woman victim lying on the table. Right after he counts to three and takes his last picture, the flashbulb is so bright that it causes the supposed "dead woman" to blink, even though her eyes are shut. It happens quickly, but if you look closely, it is clearly visible. See more »

Worth watching, if nothing else, for some hilarious banter courtesy of the unusual Pembleton (Braugher) / Lewis (Johnson) partnership, Diener also features two points of interest.

First, it's one of the few episodes in the series where the character of Dr. Cox (played by pretty, talented Michelle Forbes) is used well. A subplot about a member of her staff stealing valuable items from the morgue and involuntarily tampering with the investigation feels fresh and realistic.

Second, to ponder how, in spite of its high-quality writing (not considering the last two seasons), one of Homicide's flaws was the scarce attention to the ongoing continuity. Here, the character of Jeff (Glenn Fitzgerald) appears out of nowhere, pretty much carrying a big "I am the thief!" sign over his head. Think how more compelling the subplot would have been if Jeff had been introduced a few episodes ago. This was a constant in the series: possibly because Homicide was often on the edge of cancellation and long-term plans felt complicated, characters' introductions and send-offs (with a few notable exceptions) felt abrupt.

7/10
