    There was a 30min "behind the scenes" feature that was on a while back. It looks interesting.

    This looks phenomenal. No BBCA HD on DirecTV though. Will be getting this through alternative means.

    Check again. BBCA went HD on DirecTV at 6AM today. You might need to add it to your favorites list.

    Barry Levinson and Tom Fontana together again. Homicide is one of my all time favorite shows. I'm in.

    Almost had a rude awakening. I set my SP for Copper before it went HD. I don't have the SD channels set to display in my Guide Data. Turns out my DirecTV DVR was recording the SD BBC America. Had to delete that SP and create a new one for BBCA HD.

    It's a local thing. Both DirecTV and Comcast Houston have BBCA-HD.

    I thought it was pretty good, although I had a little trouble understanding some of the dialog due to the Irish accents. I watched it last night and then stayed up until 2am reading about Five Points and Tammany Hall on Wikipedia.

    Not to add to your frustration, but Comcast in San Francisco has BBCA HD. :D

    I liked it. I like the primitive forensic techniques. I look forward to more of that.

    I really wanted that rich bastard to at least get a good beating for killing the little girl. And his one legged friend also.

    Since his wife came to Copper at the end and made it known she wanted him to pay for his crime, I wonder if the storyline will continue. Like he keeps trying to catch the bastard in other crimes or something.

    Is the boxing match still on? Will Copper still referee?

    What's wrong with Tracy? It's a perfectly fine place to drive past on your way to, well, anywhere.



    :p
