Quotes

Det. Bobby "Fearless" Smith: It's not understandable. Knowing this is being done to you by your fellow human beings is a betrayal of everything that is human.
Det. Joel Stevens: That's because it wasnt human. These guys crossed a line. I'd call them animals but animals wouldn't even do that.

User Reviews

Powerfully acted
23 April 2003 | by (Lexington) – See all my reviews

This is the best crime drama on television and the best in recent memory. The changing perspectives are not what sets the show apart. In fact, this aspect is hit and miss. One week it might add something, the next week the story could be told in sequence with equal force. What sets this show apart is the performances of the cast. Neal McDonough is awe inspiring as talented but tragically flawed Deputy DA David McNorris. His performance is more intelligent and nuanced than anything else on network television. It is an incredible combination of a man with positive attributes who is constantly on the edge of self destruction. Donnie Wahlberg and Mykelti Williams also play roles of a lifetime. This is an addictive show that is a must see on Sunday nights.
