One of the most critically acclaimed shows in TV history Homicide: Life On The Street re-invigorated a tired genre by focusing on the grueling work of solving murders instead of an endless succession of bloody crimes and car chases. Inspired by David Simon's Edgar Award-winning account of Baltimore homicide detectives and brought to television by director Barry Levinson (Rain Man Oz) and writer Paul Attanasio (Gideon's Crossing) Homicide boasted a powerhouse cast featuring Ned Beatty (Deliverance) Yaphet Kotto (Alien) Richard Belzer (Law & Order: SVU) and breakout... star Andre Braugher (Frequency). The critical response was overwhelming: Homicide won multiple Emmy and Writer's Guild of America Awards and is one of just two shows in history to claim three Peabody Awards. Now Homicide debuts on DVD with this collector's set featuring all 13 episodes from the first two seasons. Episodes Comprise: 1. Gone For Goode 2. A Ghost Of a Chance 3. Son Of A Gun 4. A Shot In The Dark 5. Three Men And Adena 6. Dog And Pony Show 7. And The Rockets' Dead Glare 8. Smoke Gets In Your Eyes 9. The NIght Of The Living Dead [show more]

Series one of the gritty detective drama. Homicide featured a no-nonsense look at the workings of a tough homicide department. As perhaps the first cop show in television history to boldly portray the life of an inner-city detective as it really is-repetitive, spiritually draining and completely without glamour, but a social necessity-Homicide developed a trademark feel and look. For example, the series was filmed (using hand-held 16mm cameras) almost entirely on location in Baltimore. As such, the city became something of a character, itself. Episodes included: 'Gone for Goode', 'Ghost of a Chance', 'Son of a Gun', 'A Shot in the Dark', 'Three Men and Adena', 'A Dog and Pony Show', 'And the Rockets Dead Glare', 'Smoke Gets in Your Eyes' and 'Night of the Dead Living'.
