Hill Street Blues creator Steven Bochco passes away

Relevant because JMS always cites it as a turning point in TV History, a show with 'memory' and extended narrative beyond the stand alone episode. I believe it had an impact on B5's arc structure.

Hill Street Blues is the most frequently mentioned television series in all Joe's early pitch documents for Babylon 5. Bochco was a revolutionary in the medium.

And from a science fiction perspective, Steven Bochco was a co-writer for "Silent Running", one of my favorite movies.
