Future cops? A dreary trawl through modern-day misanthropy
14 January 2000 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

A plot summary: The conflict centers around Eddie Longshaw (Keith Barron) who has taken a group of Russian immigrants hostage in an elevator, blaming the immigrant population for an outbreak of tuberculosis that took the lives of most of his family. Detective Chief Inspector Billy O'Connell (Liam Cunningham) is in charge of the nightshift force brought in to resolve the situation. However, he and a colleague, played by Rachel Davies, are both up for a promotion and they are being watched throughout the crisis to see who performs better, their superiors taking advantage of the situation to pit them against each other.

Against this backdrop, we get to see that cops in the year 2020 will be the same hateful, moaning misanthropists that British viewers have got used to during a decade of 'the Bill', with none of the wit that makes _Homicide: LOTS_ so great. The plot lacks basic logic in places - maybe some of this could have been ironed out had it gone from a pilot to a series.

A big disappointment to anyone who looks to the future with any optimism. It's a shame because there's obviously a lot of effort gone into it from the cast.

Feel free to disagree
