Before the "Silence"
27 February 2001 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

This was an excellent show from CBS's adult night time series. This show predates "The X Files" and "Silence of the Lambs" as a specialized FBI investigative forensic team that deals with serial murders, rapists, and other dark characters. The show is both wonderfully intelligent and creepily dark. If this ever re-airs, watch it. It's one of the best, most-overlooked crime drama in the history of film and TV.
