Hill Street Blues was one of the most decorated TV series of all time, and just happened to be where Mark Frost got his first taste of running a major network TV show.
Join us and our special guest Stacy as we take a quick survey of the show, analyzing it for its historical impact and context, as well as the major threads that connect it to Twin Peaks. We also took quite a few dives into vaguely connected topics including the joy of 80s sweeps weeks, the Reagan administration, "The Great Imposter" Barry Bremen, and David Mamet, for good measure. Does this once-lauded show hold up today? What was Mark Frost's impact on it? And what does it reveal about Twin Peaks? Join the Bicks to find out!
