Enjoyable action comedy
13 December 2001 | by (Montreal, Canada) – See all my reviews

This busted t.v. pilot was carefully crafted and slickly scripted.

We follow different groups of cops, competing ambulance companies (pre-Scorcese's Bringing Out The Dead) and assorted floatsam from L.A.'s busy Night streets as they cross and collide with each other.

McClure keeps the tone of his character light as he disguises his voice to flirt anonymously with his lady dispatcher (the one with the sexy voice) and initiate his new partner to the crazyness of the Nightside.

Anyone who has ever worked nights will get it.
