A jumping-off point for many
30 March 2011 | by (Wilton, NH) – See all my reviews

When you look at the cast list for this show, and realize what most of them have become, you have to wonder just what the heck ABC was doing when they canceled it. Hilary Swank - won two Oscars, has been in several monster movies. Christopher Meloni - star of "Law & Order: SVU". Melina Kanakaredes - star of "Providence" and "CSI: NY". Ron Rifkin - star of "Alias" and "Brothers & Sisters". Lorraine Toussaint - has been in numerous huge series, including "CSI:" and "Ugly Betty". Anne Haney - "Chicago Hope", "Dharma & Greg" and others.

But forget all of that - this was a good show. A little quirky, yes, but good. A ton of shows out there that show cops (or scientists) solving crimes. Quite a few shows dealing with the coroner's office (think "Quincy"). But this was one of the few shows showing the entire process, and what happens during it all.

Even better, this show had heart - the characters were easy to relate to, even if a few of them were just a bit odd. Just as nicely, the characters meshed - they worked well together, and they played off of each other well.

This was a fun show, but they never gave it a chance.
