Storyline

This dark and moody cop show focused on Rose "Phil" Phillips, the only female homicide detective in an otherwise all-male precinct in Portland, Oregon. Not only did Phil have to fight crimes, she also had to deal with the sexist attitudes of many of her fellow detectives, most notably Missing Persons Det. Barbini. Her confidante on the force was Vitelli, an internal affairs investigator with whom she had an on-again off-again romantic involvement. Having lost her original partner and mentor, Frank Fusco in the pilot episode, Phil initially worked alone, later teaming up with Beck and Papadakis. Written by Annomous

Where did it go???
7 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Am I the only one who saw this series? This incredibly well-done cop show with a really terrific, complicated female lead and a top drawer supporting ensemble cast? Not since Christine Cagney has there been a as good a female detective as this one and it still pains me that it went up against "X-Files" in its time slot and so had no chance of surviving to find a bigger audience. It's been awhile, but I would love to find this season on DVD somehow. I'd still watch it. The location was unique (Portland, OR, I think...) and the cinematography was grainy and cool and it kept surprising each week. Just when I thought I'd figured out Ms. Zamprano's approach, she'd stretch it out into another direction. And, Karen Sillas was terrific as "Phil." We were just starting to know Phil's back story when she was taken from us. Did she die at the end?

Great show!
