It's all about The Board and The Box

First, watch this:


Doesn't that jump out and grab you? It's simply the best title sequence ever devised for a mere TV show... and you can see it again - and again - and again - over the next few weeks. Better still, there's a poker-faced, scabrous, sharply-scripted 50 minutes of drama attached. That'd be "Homicide: Life on The Street" then, Barry Levinson's highly distinctive 90s Baltimore cop show. It's - sorta - a predecessor to "The Wire" - same backdrop; same shared pool of actors; even the same sets in some cases - but with more mordant wit and (a little) less grim grind.

ITV4 have just started reshowing the series from the beginning (...they've never yet made it to the end, but better luck this time eh?...). Better have a recording device of some kind ready; it's only on in the wee small hours (next episode - Thursday @ 02:00am, and most nights following). "Midsomer Murders" it ain't... sample this moment where Dets. Munch and Bolander apply lateral thinking to the extraction of a confession:

Oh, and what was that about The Board and The Box? You'll have to watch to find out...
