Love the intro- what is it from?

It is from an episode of the 90's cop show "Homicide: Life on the Streets" -- a forerunner of "The Wire" I think it's season 4 or 5 .Possibly episode 49, season 4. The voice Andre Braugher as Detective Frank Pembleton. The context is a murder investigation of a "copycat" murderer (Robie). Frank is pondering "all this repeating" and goes off on a rant about it when his order for an egg creme gets screwed up at a diner. The other cops mention the internet as something "new" and Frank shrugs it off.

I always thought this little bit was a brilliant comment on the so-called "postmodern condition" of cultural fragments floating in a chaotic, ahistorical space.
