This entertaining mid-season sci-fi action show was just not original enough to keep viewers. Yancy Butler (who would star in the vastly superior "Witchblade") played Eve, an android, the first of her kind. She is recruited to the police, where she is partnered with Detective Mann. Together they fight crime, but she's super strong and that gives them the edge.
The parallels with Eve and Commander Data from ST:TNG were far too obvious. Both characters were trying to find their humanity, but Star Trek just happened to explore that first. However, Butler did very well to show a child-like innocence and vulnerability in Eve, without completely imitating Brent Spiner's Data.
Unfortunately the stories were routine, and the lead "Mann" was very flat. It's a show that would have made it if Gene Roddenberry created it.
