Audience Reviews for Homicide: Life on the Street: Season 7

  • Feb 26, 2021
    With Pembleton gone, and the shot-up Homicide office completely redecorated and painted a deeper shade of blue along with plush furniture and a rushed opening credit sequence, it is quite clear the show had finally run out of steam! Most of the episodes are unmemorable, bland, predictable and devoid of soul. The young & beautiful characters on show seem to be straight out of LA Law, Law and Order or NYPD. And just like the new office they add absolutely nothing other than window-dressing. Even Bayliss looks confused and constantly in some kind of philosophical, existentialism, wandering around crime scenes and the Homicide office spouting Yoda-like observations while musing over his sexual preferences. Which brings me onto another criticism of this season: seems that the heart of the show - the crime investigations - has been put on the backburner to be replaced by dumbed down romantic teasings between the detectives. Admittedly this was prevalent in the earlier seasons but was done with subtly, coupled with good writing and not constantly smacking you in the face with a brick! Basically season 7 is like a car running on 3 wheels, the handbrake on and in 2nd gear trying to reach 70mph.
