One of the Best
3 April 2004 | by See all my reviews

I can't vouch for the original UK version of "Touching Evil" but I can easily say without any difficulty whatsoever that I am throughly enjoying this drama series. With so many other great shows getting the axe early on, I haven't seen one thing on television that needed my attention let alone my full, undivided attention like "Touching Evil" demanded of me. I am typically not a fan of the crime/cop genre but within only the first couple minutes of the pilot episode I was sold. I didn't even get to see the opening 10 minutes or so the first time and I was still sold. I loved David Creegan--I never knew who Jeffrey Donovan was before this series and I think he's excellent for this role. I could just go on and on about this series... I am beyond joyous for another good show to be involved with after a year of drab television. I just hope USA will prove to be more worthy of my respect than the other "big name" networks (ABC, CBS, NBC, etc). I'm sticking by this show for good. *huggles "Touching Evil" and Jeffrey Donovan* =)
