Storyline

Young uniform police officers Zane Marinelli and Mike Dorigan balance life on the force with their romantic relationships and personal struggles. Zane struggles with the fact that his father is in jail for his mother's murder, and tries to deal with his unstable girlfriend Beatrice, who burned down his apartment. Mike is beginning to get cold feet about his engagement to Elizabeth, a medical student, and his excessive drinking is creating tension in their relationship. The show's visual trademark is its mix of film and video. Written by Azure_Girl

a tv show that can't decide what it wants to be
26 March 2000 | by (Floyd Montana) – See all my reviews

Think of this show as a "gen-x" ADAM 12. One of the problems with this show is that they keep switching from video footage to footage shot on film to video footage where the chroma is too hot. This show can't decide what type of program it wants to be. The way the program was shot was so annoying, I couldn't keep watching it. The jerky camera on NYPD BLUE was always annoying but palatable....this show is almost unwatchable. They go for a ultra hip art house look and it just doesn't work. It would seem that this show is trying to recapture the style of MIAMI VICE without all the talent that made that show what it was. Sadly, this show doesn't fly and might die a quick death unless changes are made. The finished format of this show reminds me of NEW YORK UNDERCOVER.....another show that did not work.
