A hidden Gem
21 January 2006 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

I caught this show on HBO recently and am surprised it was done in 2000 and not picked up for a series. This wonderful, tightly shot show has lots of the powerful technique of plot convolution we now see so routinely on CSI. Miguel Ferrer does well to play the cynical and jaded senior investigator. Interesting pairing of two antagonistic partners who bitch about each other and how they do each other's wives and mothers. Really was not sure how that would sustain in a longer series but for a one time TV movie, it was quite hilarious. Why this series was not picked up then-- maybe the show was just too bold for six years ago with its crude references, racial themes and gritty portrayals. No shame asking where we can get the DVD for the show!
