Started great, went Matlock
25 January 2012 | by (Portland Oregon) – See all my reviews

This show aired on a Pre-CSI CBS. During the 90's CBS had a formula for tough Crime shows that appealed to fans of Murder One and Homicide: Life on the Street. Shows like EZ Streets, Feds and the Donnie Brasco miniseries. All were short lived.

Fall 1997 saw CBS pairing the David Caruso vehicle "Micheal Hayes" with this Danny Aiello show. The first 3 episodes hit it out of the park. Punch-in-the-face tough. With episode 4 the show softened up. And by the 6th episode it had turned into a Matlock clone.

It appears they retooled the show to appeal to an older demographic. KInd of a reverse Encyclopedia Brown. Hey look, old people can solve crimes too.

I think I gave up before the end series, but the end was not far off.

As badly as they messed up this show, I would love to see it again, as well as these other shows.
