Homicide: Life On The Street Season 2 in July
Fremantle Home Entertainment have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Homicide: Life On The Street – The Complete Second Series on 16th July 2007 priced at £39.99. Currently broadcast daily on ITV4 having originally been broadcast in the 1990s on Channel 4, Homicide: Life On The Street captures the gritty reality of life for a team of homicide detectives in the front line of crime fighting.
The second series* features a trilogy of episodes bursting with drama "The City That Bleeds," "Dead End," and "End Game" in which three detectives are seriously wounded as a result of a gunman's ambush, two of them almost fatally; meanwhile, the rest of the unit grapples with this reminder of their own mortality as they hunt for the perpetrator. The second series sees the Baltimore Homicide Team further mixing their personal lives with their professional ones, including several affairs among the department's officers and Lewis and Bayliss deciding to buy their own bar.
*It should be noted the episodes included here are more commonly referred to as the third season, but as Fremantle released the first two seasons under “The Complete First Series” banner the numbering system will be at odds with the USA box-set releases of the show.
All 20 episodes are included, spread across five-discs.
