"The Sopranos", only on the side of the law!!
31 March 2000 | by See all my reviews

"Cover Me" is one of the best shows I have seen in a long time!

With witty humor, suspenseful moods, and kick-ass action, "Cover Me" should be a winner for that Sunday night action circuit. Just like "The Sopranos," this show has that gritty, hard-nosed approach to tantilate the viewers. With a smart-alecky voice to narrate the stories, it gives you the same mood of a gangster show, except the main characters are FBI agents!

Peter Dobson is Danny, the slick, mafia-infiltrating G-man who protects his family by making them his sidekicks in busting criminals. Sure, that sounds ludricous, but that's the whole idea. Hell, another crazy idea was that this is based on a true story!
