Wasn't "Hill Street Blues" based on LA (in spite of the el that seems to dominate some of it?) Isn't there a police station in central LA on Hill Street?

My Comment on "the Shiled." The producers and writers seem to be trying to do for dirty cops what HBO does for organized crime, and I don't think it works.

It's hard to sympathize with cops who: kill other cops and try to stash drugs to "seed" their crime fighting.

I've given up for "the Shield."
