A drama about the working relationship between Assistant DA Tess Kaufman, a prosecutor sensitive to the rights of the accused, and hard-charging, gruff Detective Dicky Cobb, an old-fashioned cop with a "bust-the-perps" attitude.
I remember when this show came on the air and how it ended. It was a terrible shame because James Earl Jones is one of our country's finest actors. Finally, he gets a series of his own but the show never really gained a large following after a season and was canceled by the network. It did have a terrific cast and won Emmys for James Earl Jones and others but the show never truly caught on because it was more character based than action based. For those of us who don't care about action packed movies, I prefer a good drama with characters that you can identify with and sympathize. The series was serious and too sophisticated for most audiences today who prefer to escape from their daily troubles. Of course, good drama can still effective without car chases, violence, etc. Gabriel's Fire based on my memory was a decent show with a purpose but the network felt the audiences weren't enough for it to continue in another season.
