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

This "Beat" could have gone on
5 December 2000 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

While "The Beat" undoubtedly had some problems, I think it could have gone on to be a hit. And despite the fact that its format similar to shows like "Hill Street Blues," "Homicide," and "NYPD Blue," it was also unique in a way: Going from film to video (the latter of which was used during the characters' on-duty scenes) and vice versa. It also looked more hip than other "semi-serial" shows of its ilk.

UPN had a good chance to have a "Homicide" or "Hill Street Blues" of its own. I would like to have seen the network keep it on the air a little longer so that it could find an audience that would stick with the show. When I first saw the show on its March 2000 debut, I liked it right away, and kept watching it until its premature demise nearly two months later.

Despite its flaws, this "Beat" could have gone on for five or six years.
