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

Really want this show!
26 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really loved this show when it was originally on the air. Since then, I have been desperately searching for a copy.

Anyone have ANY idea where I might be able to get one? I'm dying to see the series again (I was fairly young when it was originally aired) and would like to know how...

For anyone who hasn't seen the show (and would like to see it), if you ever get a chance, I would recommend it highly. It's a bit dark, but the characters are good, and the chemistry between Phil and Vitelli is spectacular.

Please, please, please someone have a copy... please? =)
