Some thoughts on the possibility of Homicide coming to DVD later this year:
A Homicide episode guide said all the episodes were shot on 16mm film and completed in widescreen (to keep the door open for HDTV), but were shown on NBC in “full-screen” format. If they’re going to transfer the video from the original masters, I would certainly push for a widescreen-format DVD. If the pending annoucement isn’t for widescreen, I’m going to make a big push in hopes that they would “reconsider.”
I also wonder how they will present the three crossovers with “Law and Order” in later seasons. There are three L&O eps out there that tie in directly with Homicide. I would certainly like to have them on my DVDs for seasons 4, 5 and 6.
