Norman Buntz, the gruff (and somewhat ethically questionable) detective from "Hill Street Blues" (1981) leaves the anonymous inner city and heads to the sunny climes of Southern California ... See full summary »
An outlaw, a waitress and her misfit neighbor come upon a baby in the midst of car wreckage. With his former partner in crime out to get him, the outlaw and his new friends put their lives on the line to protect the infant from danger.
Detective drama set in New York has two NYPD detectives, the veteran Mike Mooney, and his partner Vincent Trout, whom are forced by the FBI to work with them by teaming them up with agents Jimmy Flynn and Will Preecher to bring down crime and corruption in the city involving Russian mobsters, murderous drug dealers, and former police informant/contract killer Terry Maddock whom plays all parties against one another.

Very disappointing that CBS didn't give this show a fair chance to find a larger audience. With its interesting and talented ensemble of players and curious plot quirks it was certainly as fascinating to watch as NBCs "West Wing" or HBOs "The Sopranos". As far as O'Neill goes, well, it has always been difficult to watch him work without remembering his wonderful comedic antics as Al Bundy, but his Mooney characterization was in a whole different league and deserved to be judged as such. This was a good show. Too good for TV maybe.
