    Happy to see so much love for my favorite show of all time! I’ve watched it embarrassedly watch it at least half a dozen times. Currently watching again and listening to the pod. Perfect show. But now I can’t help but wonder what it would look like if Lance Reddick (RIP one of best) was cast as Bubbles!

I love to hear about how the series got started and about the message it was trying to convey of the culture and the struggles of Baltimore. I’m a fan of Homicide, and We Own This City, painting a clear picture of decades of life on t... more
