Looking back at Homicide: Life On The Street

I’m finally catching up on my HOMICIDE DVDs. Currently, I’m on the second disc of the fourth season. Just finished watching the episode “Hate Crime,” about a young man killed by two skinheads for being gay. (Or is he?!?)

In any case, two things popped out at me. The first is that the closing song was from Barenaked Ladies, a group I didn’t know existed back then. “What a Good Boy” was, of course, fitting.

Even wilder, though, was the guest appearance by Mr. Locke from LOST. He played the father of the man who was killed. I’ll grab some screenshots for you on this one. It’s a different look.

Locke As DadLocke again

    Do these Homicide DVDs come with subtitles or closed captions, do you know?

    Sadly, there is no closed captioning. It seems like such a small thing to do, but too many DVD producers don’t bother with it. It seems like a silly waste of the format.

    Interestingly, Mr. Lock has also been in West Wing numerous times, this season. He’s pulling double duty Wednesday nights. ^_^

    The actor, Terry Quinn or O’Quinn, was also in Alias — JJ Abrams has indicated that he really likes him as an actor.

    But anybody who’s ever seen the movie remembers him as “The Stepfather.” Ignore any sequels that might have come out. Find the original and watch it. THIS is what a suspense movie is supposed to be about.
