Did You Know?


Several of the cops on the TV show were inspired by the real-life cops in David Simon's 1991 book: (list of Fictional Character/Real Cop) 1. Stan Bolander-Det. Donald Worden 2. Frank Pembleton-Det. Harry Edgerton 3. Tim Bayliss - Det. Tom Pellegrini 4. David Brown - Det. John Munch 5. Al Giardello - Lt. Gary D'Addario However, the resemblance between the real detectives and their fictional counterparts is not universally viewed as strong. One source said the only thing Pembleton and Edgerton had in common is that they were both African-American cops in Baltimore. See more »


Detective Crosetti claims that at the moment of Abraham Lincoln's fatal gunshot wound, the only other people in the theater box were John Wilkes Booth and Major Rathbone. He omits mention of Mary Todd Lincoln and Clara Harris. See more »


Bernard: I'm telling the truth this time! You don't believe me?
Det. John Munch: Frankly, I preferred your Jamaican story better. It had a kind of Elmore Leonard quality.

The afore-mentioned final score was from Super Bowl XXVII,which was the event that this,the premiere episode of this awesome and ground-breaking show piggy-backed on,the evening of January 31,1993.That would add this show to a select(and perhaps infamous)fraternity of shows that have gotten their christening voyage on that un-official American holiday("The A*Team", "Airwolf" and "The Wonder Years" would count among them). A little trivia for ya there.

I recall watching this show on that evening as somewhat of a curiosity,since I was more into the game that night and knew only a token amount of info about the show itself. I recall watching the first half and half-time show(featuring a bizarre lip-synching that occurred halfway through Michael JAckson's halftime show)at a local bar--The Dugout I believe was the name if I recall correctly--which was something for me because I just reached legal drinking age earlier that month,before going back to my college campus apartment to finish the game. The game was a blow-out,but I figured I'd stick around to catch the show on after it,primarily due to the small amount of knowledge about the show I'd had coming in(i.e. produced by Barry Levinson,co-stars Belzer and Beatty)was positive. When I did,I recall that while I wasn't enraptured with it,it was intriguing enough for me to want to catch the next show,which was run the following Tuesday.

I stayed with the initial run of the show for as long as I could that winter. I was impressed with the crispness of the dialog and the dry humor incorporated,but I believe the network's reticence to hold onto the show pretty much caused me to believe that the network was giving up on it(The four episode abortive mid-season filling shows the following year wouldn't inspire much confidence where that was concerned,either). Thankfully,that would SO NOT be the case.
