Wednesday Homicide

Before The Wire, there was Homicide: Life on the Street. Based on a book by Wire creator David Simon, Homicide was in many ways a spiritual ancestor to Simon's later series.

I'm kind of a Luddite when it comes to downloading TV shows over the internet, so if I can't find DVD's of a given TV show available for rent, I'll end up not watching it. Homicide, unfortunately, is one of those shows.

What I do know is that at least one joke from Homicide eventually made its way onto The Wire. First, the Homicide version:
