Incidentally, I just watched “Bop Gun” the other day. What an amazing showcase of Robin Williams’ range as an actor. They say comics often succeed in serious roles and this is certainly true for Williams in this second season outing of Homicide: Life on the Street.
I urge everyone who is a fan to watch this episode. Be prepared, though, as almost every scene is like a punch to the gut.
Aren’t they adorable? I always loved this brief moment on the Trilogy Concert DVD (I attended the original show in 2002, by the way), where The Cure frontman Robert Smith and longtime colleague Simon Gallup share a fleeting smile during the intro to “Pictures of You”.
There’s so much genuine friendship, joyful musicianship and lifelong camaraderie compressed in these few frames.
I love those guys!
