Storyline

In an unnamed, broken-down city somewhere near the Canadian border, three violent men seem destined to come into conflict. Detective Cameron Quinn is searching for the man who killed his partner. Vicious mobster Jimmy Murtha may be the killer, but he's busy looking after old friend Danny Rooney, who just did three years in prison for a crime Murtha committed. Written by Alan Sepinwall <sepinwal@force.stwing.upenn.edu>

23 April 1999 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

CBS was the death of this show. Paul Haggis demonstrated true genius in writing and directing this intense, thoughtful drama that came off like a motion picture in every episode. Whatever folks loved about "Wiseguy," Haggis took and raised to the next level, and always presented a thought-provoking portrait of crime, family, broken homes, betrayal, passion, despair, and hope. We were all blessed with the episodes that were made, but gypped forever by the bottom-line networks.
