Goofs

A couple of times, reference is made to the other shift of the Homicide detectives as being the "night shift". However, at the time, the squads of the Homicide department regularly rotated shifts so that no one group of detectives would routinely have the night shift. See more »

True crime.
11 June 2002 | by See all my reviews

I have never been a big fan of police serials, but this is my all time favourite. I have nothing to add to the earlier comments, other than that in a time with complicated racial conflicts, poverty induced crime and the problems stemming from social inequality, this show tried to comment on the real problems facing the modern society.

And it was exciting too.
