    It never had good ratings and was stuck in NBC's Friday night lineup for it's entire run.
    Richard Belzer's character John Munch, appeared in five different TV series.
    Producers insisted that writers should live in the Baltimore area.
    The character of Tim Bayliss was obsessed with his first case throughout the entire series, and never solved it.
    The show was pretty much carried by Andre Braugher's character, Frank Pembleton.
    The poor ratings, dropped even lower after Andre Braugher left the show.
    The series was abruptly canceled, leaving many loose ends.
    Even though it was the homicide division, they pursued a drug dealer and his family for four seasons.
    It enjoyed much critical acclaim, twice being named TV Guides, 'The best show on TV you're not watching.'
    A made for TV movie addressed the loose ends left when the series was cancelled.
    In a real bonehead move, a criminal on the run from the real Baltimore Police , entered the set and surrendered to actors in uniform.
    Andre Braugher received an Emmy nomination for his performance, when his character had to rebuild himself over a season after a stroke.
    It accurately portrayed the stresses of police work, as well as the stress of the squad room.
    Despite being a show about death, it rarely had violence.
    On several occasions, it showed how Affirmative Action and political appointments can hurt an essential service such as the police department.
    It dealt with several unusual subjects, such as identical twin thrill killers and a funeral director dining and taking pictures with dead bodies.
    Staying true to real life police activity, rarely did it have a happy ending.
