Re: Have we witnessed the death of intelligent TV?

Dragnet might have gotten some technical details right, but its colorless cops who always solved the case were as realistic as anything else on TV at the time. Which is to say, not very.

Which is not to praise the modern shows you have identified for realism, although I would praise Homicide: Life on the Streets and (more so) The Wire.
