A police homicide investigation unit investigates violent crimes in the city of Baltimore.
Characters were often named after grunge musicians (i.e. Layne Staley and Krist Novoselic).
Det. Frank Pembleton:
You're Mrs. Nawls, Darryl's mother?
Mary Nawls: I'm his mother.
Mary Nawls: Where's Darryl? Is he in trouble? Is he okay? Has he been in an accident or something?
Det. Frank Pembleton: Mrs. Nawls, I'm a homicide detective.
In a number of episodes, in-vehicle shots with a "back seat" perspective often show that the vehicle being filmed in is in fact a Chrysler-produced sedan. Note the older star-in-pentagon emblem on the steering wheel instead of the Chevy Cavaliers that the detectives drive. This is likely due to the lower headroom in the Cavalier, making it difficult to film that perspective.
