Involvement is natural. Survival is for the smartest.
11 November 2001 | by (Muskogee OK) – See all my reviews

This is an interesting above average made-for-TV crime drama about a Miami cop(Jimmy Smits)who lets his career and life get entangled with homicide, mobsters, a singer(Markie Post)and a sleazy ex-con(John Diehl). This should broaden Smits' fan base and for Post, she needs no help in using the best of her talents. Also appearing are Madison Mason and Robin Strasser.
