Jesse L. Martin,
"Feds" is probably one of the first dramatic television shows that I ever really got into, and I only wish that it was still making episodes. Made by Dick Wolf, Jody Milano and several others that bought "us" Law and Order, I will admit that plot-wise, Feds was probably not astonishingly different from L&O(but it's not like they ever copied each other), but Feds had...that certain something. Maybe it was the cast. Wolf bought what was sort of a theater lovers "dream team" in the form of Blair Brown, Dylan Baker, John Slattery(both of the NY theater group "The Drama Department"), Regina Taylor(who is a strong force behind Chicago's Goodman Theater), Grace Phillips and Adrian Pasdar. Not only had they all had an impressive number of theatrical credits, but all had had some experience in other dramatic TV series. Maybe that's what paid off. Whatever it was, Feds never failed to capture my interest for the entire time it ran...all six episodes. If only it had been longer. If only I had thought to tape some of them...
