User Reviews

a resounding yes
10 October 2003 | by (arlington, va) – See all my reviews

Even though there are a lot of shows about law enforcement out there, this one supports the case that there's always room for one more. Joe Pantolino, is convincing and human enough as a down-to-business FBI agent who sends people on undercover assignments, to make the show work. The plots are engaging enough to make for a worthwhile hour, and the supporting cast shines through here
