Guybrush? Is that you?
Though I am a shaven ape,
the secret of my island still eludes me!
I... Okay.

Sorry, my man Mannion, couldn't resist.
Now, to change subject completely...
If I may make a suggestion,
I'd love it if you were to write a post (or even a series of such) about "Homicide: Life on the Street".
I've loved reading your reviews/interpretations of severeal movies/tv-shows, and I can't help wondering what you'd have to say about my favorite one.
Especially since I read your Law & Order posts,
a show I used to love and which had, I think, two crossover episodes with Homicide.
Which must have been a bitch for the respective writers
of the shows to come to terms on.
One show, Law & Order, was, and still is,
all (or at least mostly) about the crime and the procedure,
(hence the "Procedural" tag appended to many current shows)while Homicide was about the cops themselves;
how they related to eachother, to the crime, to the criminal, to their city and their community.
As you've no doubt figured out,
I consider Homicide the far, far, better show.
Not that it didn't falter... it did.
But only when it was already on its last legs.
Ach, I hear myself rambling... Sorry.
But consider what I said.
