they've been showing it again, from the beginning, on itv4 but appear to be finishing at the end of series 3 (next week)
i've been writing down the names on the board as i spot them but figured it'd be on the web somewhere. a quick google for "visciglia liddell" (2 of munch's cases from 1994) gave me:
http://members.aol.com/jimking/ which is stunning.
(the last 3 i've seen have had Steve Buscemi, John Waters and Tim Russert guest starring / cameos). but the way they are showing them out of order bugs me (end of season three was episodes from before the shootings / bolander's scar, for instance.)

I have been thinking of watching this when I finish S5 of The Wire. How does it compare?

For its time, it was really about as good as it gets. C4 UK passed up on the final season, which is probably where the rot set in for them.
Having recently seen a BBC2 piece on The Wire, but never watched it, I'm in the opposite situation of feeling I should really catch up with a box set.

I don't know how much it compares as I haven't seen much of the Wire, but it's generally considered about as realistic, but more episodic. Nearly everyone I've come across who loves one loves the other.

Everyone needs The Wire in their life.
I'm just worried that Homicide will be like The Wire, only not quite as good. Only one way to find out, I guess!

well, according to the current Tivo listings, on 4th october itv4 here in the UK is showing "La Famiglia" which is episode 1 of series 7 and i think is the first time it's been aired on english tv. (is, as usual, 2:55 in the morning but...)
(last night's was 6.16 The Abduction which is roughly where they stopped the last lot of repeats)

In anticipation of this placing on the '90s poll, just thought I'd point out that Amazon at this very moment has an insane sale on the complete series. 60% off, dudes!!!

Pretty much best show ever created.
My husband would agree. We're only through season 1 and started watching s2. But he's hooked. And thinks it's the best show evah.
Me? I really like it. S1 was good, S2 seems even better. I did not like the Gyllenhaal directed ep, I have to admit. Hated it. Not the storyline, just the style of directing was totally off (imo)
