Quotes

Capt. Benjamin Winship: I know you really want to nail these guys, but getting involved in Cassie's trucking business is just pushing it, Sammo. Both you guys could have been killed.
Sammo Law: Sometimes to catch the bad guys, you have to think outside of the box.
Capt. Benjamin Winship: Wait a minute. What idiot told you that?
Sammo Law: You did. The same day you gave me this badge.
Capt. Benjamin Winship: Uh, yeah.

"Not slow, just fat"

I've been watching this show from the beginning, and I think I'll continue to do so. The action is good, and the story is, as far as I can see, devoid of stupid little flaws. (Then again, I haven't been looking for them). However, the first episode of the second (?) season (the one with the new chief and Jerry Doyle as McQueen) had a small flaw that I noticed without running it on slow motion: A pair of handcuffs breaking, then being whole again in the next cut. I hope there's not a lot of these, as I will be looking forward to the next episode.

The best things about it, in my opinion, are Sammo's wit and a great pace.
