THE PILOT // TAKE 49 - HILL STREET BLUES vs CSI LAS VEGAS

baa baa baaaaaaa baaa baaa baaaaaa baaa ba baaa ba ba ba baaa ba baaaaaa. No, we haven’t let a herd of sheep into the studio (though one of the hosts IS called Shepherd), those baaas above belong to the Mike Post penned theme song to Hill Street Blues, the grandaddy of gritty cop shows. We pit this old timer against the flashy nuances of CSI Vegas with its fast cuts, zooms into wounds and pretty faces. The BIG question is though… which is the better pilot episode? Has HSB aged like a fine wine, or is it simply blown out of the water by the superior effects of CSI that can take the audience to places Hill Street Station can only dream of?
