...it must be true.
What do you, having just watched most of Homicide, think?
I'm halfway through the final (7th) season of Homicide; sidetracked only by binging on season one of Revenge, which is like eating potato chips.I don't think the comparison quite works: Homicide is about cops, The Wire is about the system they are enmeshed in -- which it views in the largest possible civic/social sense.The effect of the job on McNulty's marriage in The Wire is vestigial; it's a nod to what people still expect on a TV cop show. The effect of the job on Pembleton's strong marriage on Homicide avoids winey-wife cliches and is real drama, not melodrama.Both shows are excellent. I'd say it depends on what kind of material you'd rather watch.
Longmire, OTOH, is Wallander in Wyoming.
