Storyline

When a police officer is found shot to death, Elizabeth Wu writes an article praising his dedication to the job. An informer calls her with a contradiction: the cop was shot when he demanded his money back in a dope deal. Her source later reveals that he was the shooter but claims self-defense. Meanwhile Kellerman's rogue brothers show up and he winds up in a jail cell with them. Lewis and Julianna to the rescue. Written by jeaneva

poor casting, for journalist
10 August 2016 | by ayadstoreSee all my reviews

'homicide: life on the street' is one of my favorite TV series of all time (joined by groucho marx's 'you bet your life,' sid caesar's 'your show of shows' and 'moon over Miami'), but this episode really suffered from a poor choice for the role of the journalist -- the actress wasn't at all credible as a crime reporter -- how could she be a journalist for a top u.s. newspaper when her English wasn't very good, she sure didn't dress for the part, nor did she behave like a crime reporter -- she just didn't pull off the role

all i can think, is that the network wanted another pretty woman, and somebody wanted to include another Asian

disappointing, for a top-notch show
