If you've been following the making of "Homicide: The Movie" in these pages, you know that the premise has Lt. Al Giardello, the larger-than-life chief of the homicide bureau played by Yaphet Kotto, running for mayor of Baltimore. The event that brings most of the detectives, past and present, to the squad room for a "super-red-ball" investigation is an assassination attempt on Candidate Giar-dello as he is about to speak at an Inner Harbor rally. The assassin's bullets leave Giardello, one of the more empowered and complex African-American characters on television, fighting for his life in a hospital emergency room.

Last year at this time, the consensus was that "Homicide: Life on the Street" was starting its last season on NBC.Tomorrow, the critically acclaimed cop drama based in Baltimore will start its seventh year, and the end is now nowhere in sight.As the Emmy-Award-winning Andre Braugher put it in an interview last week, "If the quality of the writing is sustained, I believe the show has the potential to go on for many, many more years."And this, despite the loss of Braugher whose Frank Pembleton character handed in his badge last May after a shootout that left his partner, Tim Bayliss (Kyle Secor)

Stanley Bolander (Ned Beatty) is retired and living in St Michael's. Frank Pembleton (Andre Braugher) is teaching at a Jesuit college. And Tim Bayliss (Kyle Secor) is standing in a river fly-fishing while taking an extended leave from police work. Those are the places that "Homicide: The Movie" finds some of our favorite detectives during its opening minutes. I know it is early to start beating the drum, with the NBC movie not airing until Sunday, Feb. 13, but the screening cassette arrived one recent morning and, of course, I put the rest of the day on hold and raced to the VCR to see what executive producer Tom Fontana and his colleagues have done with the "Homicide" crew since last we met in May. Is it worth marking your calendar?
