The Wife and I have finally discovered Homicide: Life on the Street.
Yeah, I know. The show went off the air in 1999. 122 episodes. And just now, we've started watching it.
I'd seen some episodes on TNT, when they'd air Law & Order episodes that crossed over with Homicide.
But that's all I ever saw.
When the show started, back in 1993, I was in Korea. And it didn't air on AFKN.
Season two, which was only four episodes, aired in January 1994. And that's when I got back from Korea. And was looking for a place to stay, after the Ex- notified me she was about to become my Ex-.
Seasons 3 when I was in the Army and working on becoming single again.
And season 4 when I was single, trying to be a non-custodial parent.
Season 5 was airing when I left the Army and moved to the Columbus area.
And I'm not sure why I missed seasons 6 and 7, but I did.
Well, recently, the TiVo suggested up an episode of Homicide, and I Googled it, wanting to see what it was all about.
That's when I found out that the episode that TiVo had suggested was near the end of the run. And, checking the schedule, I discovered that it was starting from the beginning soon on WGN.
So, week before last, I set up TiVo to record the show, adding it to the To Do list.
And last week, we began watching it.
I like it.
Yeah, I know. It's all old hat to you.
But we're getting to experience it for the first time.
Thank goodness for WGN. And thank goodness for TiVo.
