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

The TV Show, not the movie
15 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The "Sunday Herald" (Boston, 5/15/05)) had some brief commentary regarding the mid 90s short lived but excellent crime series "Under Suspicion", that CBS promptly canned after one season. That induced me to revisit the show at this site and to try conveying some thoughts based upon recollections of a decade ago. I remember watching it on Friday nights (I think) and have never forgotten the noir-ish moods it conveyed so well. After 10 years, details fade and one is left with general impressions and memories somewhat distorted by time, so I reviewed the episodes listings with their brief summaries and it was good to be re-reminded of Detective "Phil" Phillips who was always reliably relentless in her pursuit of justice on behalf of the mostly innocent victims of crime and evil that were brought to her attention. I think that "Under Suspicion" managed to avoid the clichés that today's slick, formulaic "successful" crime series with their wooden, one dimensional characters, countless trips to the morgue and neat, almost unbelievable wraps at the end, are unfortunately, sustained by. Further,it was probably too close in style and content to the British series "Prime Suspect" for it to be be picked up by American PBS, but it's interesting to wonder what might have developed had that happened.
