Smart. Sexy. Tough. Karen Sisco is a United States marshal on Miami's Gold Coast. In pursuit of dangerous fugitives, Karen must pick her way through the dark underbelly of South Beach nightlife and the sunshine and glitz of Palm Beach highlife while she struggles to win the respect of her supervisor and fellow officers. Karen is a barely concealed weapon who can take down a suspect twice her size. The only man she truly trusts is her father a retired marshal with a wealth of life experience and street smarts. He's Karen's confidant, counselor, confessor and her rock when her confidence wavers which it does every time she tries to connect romantically with a man. Based on the character portrayed by Jennifer Lopez in Elmore Leonard's Out of Sight, Karen Sisco is that rare combination of action and character-drama, with a fresh and original young lead.

What more could I ask for - not only is this show witty, exciting, and well directed, it also has a remarkably hot woman playing the lead role, pushing Enterprise's T'pol off to the side for the finest lady on network TV.
Every episode is really a gem, however two so far have stood out as really kickass (the second episode, the one with the two brothers who like Leonard Skinnard, and the one about the guy who keeps breaking out of prison to get back with his stripper girlfriend). Even though Elmore Leonard did little more for the series than invent the main character, the unique touches that are present in every Leonard book are present here. I pray to God this show makes it, because it beats the hell out of most everything else on TV today.
