In several episodes, cameras and equipment attached to the police cruisers and ambulances are visible in reflecting buildings and passing car windows, as the camera view shows the cast member in the far seat of the vehicle from where the camera is mounted. See more »
Third Watch will be remembered as NBC's secret stunner. For 6 seasons this show persevered through several slot changes and a lack of promotion by the network. While NBC spent most of their time promoting all of the Law and Order Series, their must see comedies, and lack luster reality series, Third Watch remained largely in the shadows of the network. Still, this show managed to bring viewers to the edge of their seats every week and kept their plot lines fresh, intriguing, and emotionally appealing. The cast went through small changes but remained mostly intact up until it's fifth season. Regardless, the talent on this show would rival any other on NBC or any network, even cable channels which are usually known for their own breakthrough television. Third Watch was a fish out of water on a network that never realized what it had. The faithful fans followed the show relentlessly and hopefully after the series ends more fans will be gained through release of the seasons on DVD. I recommend this show for those who not only love good television, but also love great film making. The show is visually stunning and puts new angles on the traditional cop show format. Maybe it wouldn't be as special if NBC had ever given it the recognition it truly deserved. Third Watch, I believe, will go down in history not as just another cop drama, but as a show that encompassed what it really means to be a police officer, fireman, and paramedic on any street in America and also show everyone that not all of those people are perfect and righteous. On Third Watch, as in real life, there are good guys and bad guys. This show gave you a view into the worlds of both groups.
