Take Me as Your Hostage!
26 October 2001 | by (Albuquerque, New Mexico) – See all my reviews

One in a long while, comes a show about guys who go Undercover and solve crimes. Such is UC: Undercover, starring that guy from Homicide, and that guy from The Mummy, and The Mummy 2. And I'm sure The Mummy 3. Even though the term "Undercover" is listed twice in the title, I saw little of it in the one episode I've seen. I could easily go into how poorly creative the plot turned out to be, or how unconvincing the acting was, but I won't. I'll simply say if overdrawn, color-by-the-numbers storylines about hostages being held at gunpoint while broodingly pantaloon-laden, hyper-stylized super-cops run around "undercover" to save the day using ingenius techniques that would make even Quincy wince, then go ahead and tune in. If not, well, then, looks like you'll have to go outside.
