Hack Season 1
3 May 2003 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Michael Olshansky(David Morse) is an ex cop he was busted for stealing money, while there were others involved he took the blame himself, his marriage to Heather(Donna Murphy) is over and he is a taxi driver.

Mike often gets involved with his passengers even though he is not a cop anymore he still tries to help people.

Mike often gets his former partner Marcellus Washington(Andre Braugher) to help him on missions.

Marcellus also took money but since Mike won't rat Marcellus is a free man and still a cop.

As the season goes on Mike must prepare for his trial, while trying to get his life in order.

Rest of the cast includes George Dzundza and Matthew Borish.

Bebe Neuwirth does a few guest spots.

Hack was created by David Koepp who wrote Spider-Man.

The previews for Hack looked really bad and the critics slammed the show, so i decided to watch the pilot too see if it was as bad as the critics said and how the previews looked.

And while nothing groundbreaking it wasn't so bad.

For the most part Hack was good it had a few boring episodes.

But i continued to tune in and did enjoy it.

David Morse is outstanding in the lead role.

I give Hack Season 1 6/10
