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

It's good to know someone remembers this excellent show
7 August 2000 | by (Cheney Washington) – See all my reviews

I saw this show in its original network run and was totally blown away by it. Intelligent scripting, interesting characters and great performances made this crime series transcend it's genre.

And like most shows that are a little to original and intelligent to be pigeon-holed into a neat little category, the network morons promptly consigned it to limbo.

Karen Sillas plays Rose Phillips, a Portland homicide investigator who gets involved in very twisty, convoluted cases. The plot developments kept her and the audience guessing until the end.

I love crime and mystery stories. The more complicated, the better. The plots of Under Suspicion (stretched out over two episodes, so they couldn't be tied up in a nice little bow) are reminiscent of the best in crime literature. This is something truly rare in TV and film. Perhaps something we will never see again.

Since this show has been cancelled, Network television has steadily declined and now hit it's nadir with the brainless fad of "reality TV". I hope someday the network would give intelligent shows like Under Suspicion another chance. But that is unlikely to happen.
