Back Burners - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: When Poot first jumps up after Snoop rakes the corner, the blood stain his shirt has absorbed is much larger, and singular - consistent with lying in a pool of blood not coming from your body on a flat surface. When the frame changes, there are now three blood stains, each much smaller. (00:51:52 - 00:52:56)

Dennis 'Cutty' Wise: The game done changed.
Slim Charles: Game's the same, just got more fierce.

Slapstick - S3-E9

Question: What does ISD stand for in Baltimore police? It is mentioned by major Colvin to Carv after police officers correctly guess that somebody (Carv) has moved the dead body (Internal affairs is called IID during the show). It is mentioned again in Season 4 episode 8, when Herc worries about how to get back an expensive camera that Carv helped borrow to that ISD department.

Answer: ISD was the Inspectional Services Division, a controversial intelligence arm of the Baltimore PD which operated from 1966 to 1976 and reported directly to the commissioner, Donald Pomerleau.
