Eddie Torres and 'J.C.' Williams are two detectives of the 4th precinct of New York City. In their job they fight against the worst of the society infiltrated like the bandits who try to stop. Their honesty and good making shocks against the lawless world of the criminals and the lawyers who serve to the own criminals. In their work they have the help of their boss, Lt. Virginia Cooper, a hard character woman who knows the streets like no one that she cares that their agents don't use illegal ways in their cases, at the same time that she watches other couple of good agents, Tommy McNamara and Nina Moreno, who often times they work with Torres and Williams. All together try to clean the streets of the criminal plague that invade the city. Written by
Before production on the third season, Michael DeLorenzo and Malik Yoba staged a walkout of the show. They refused to return to work unless they received higher salaries and better accommodations. Production was shut down for a few days. Executive producer Dick Wolf threatened to fire the two stars and wrote a script in which their characters are killed. DeLorezno and Yoba returned to work but DeLorenzo left at the end of the season. See more »

This was one of those unique shows that should have acquired more praise. While white-dominated cop shows seem to be the norm, this show broke new ground with a diverse cast and minority related issues. Sadly, the whiteness of Hollywood was far too much to overcome in regards to the shelf life of this show. Malik Yoba and Michael DeLorenzo were especially excellent in this series, demonstrating their talent as they were constantly torn between race, culture and the police force. I especially felt the opening montages to the show provided quite a trademark within the series, using no words and only the pulsating beats of contemporary hip-hop and R&B artists to tell the story in a neo-silent film fashion. Whenever I can catch this show at 1 a.m. (and this is only on the weekends), I am rarely disappointed.
