A seductive show set in "The Big Easy" New Orleans
13 January 1999 | by (NY) – See all my reviews

A show that ended way before its time, it wasn't properly nurtured by USA Networks. If it had, this show, seductive, sexy and well acted, could have been up there with La Femme Nikita with the fans. The show, like the movie, had Remy McSwain, a New Orleans detective, solving mysteries with the help of Northern DA Anne Osborne. One of the best things about this show, was that there was more emphasis on the sexual tension between Remy and Anne, then there was "love" as so many other shows have between the two male and female main characters. Well scripted.
