Storyline

In spite of his inability to abide by common sense and the laws he's sworn to uphold, he, with the help of his partner, work together to hunt down the most wicked and vicious criminals on the streets.

excellent first episode, but the rest of the episodes are not as good..
23 April 2004 | by (California, usa) – See all my reviews

the premiere 2hr episode of this series was excellent, it was intense in your face and takes no prisoner, well worth the hype. but now that the show's been on for a few weeks, the stories are not as intense and interesting anymore, just your basic formularic cop show with creegan doing random weird things.

some critics compares this show to law & order: criminal intent, because of the quirky main character, but story-wise touching evil falls short when compare to Criminal intent.

the show's Star jefferey donovan is great actor, and the rest of the cast are just as good, but the story doesn't live up to the show's potential.

hope the show improves back to the quality of the premiere episode.
