Storyline

Based on the British crime drama of the same name, 'Touching Evil' centres around David Creegan, a detective returning to work after surviving a near-fatal gunshot wound to the head. Creegan is a man on the edge with a flair for understanding the criminal mind but also has a tendency to bend the rules when it suits him. When he is assigned to the Organized and Serial Crime Unit of the FBI, he is partnered with no-nonsense Susan Branca, who is determined to do things by the book. Although the two clash on many occasions, they are determined to work together to bring down the psychopaths who torment the streets of their city. Written by Melissa J

Great start
24 April 2004 | by (Sandgate) – See all my reviews

So what this is a stolen show from England, who really cares? I'm not a copyright lawyer and earnesty has nothing to do with me getting entertained. Im sure the limeys have stolen from us at least twice.

Creegan is a cool lazurus man cop, back from the dead, and at different faculties than normal folk without shame or ego. Here, he and his apprehensive partner, Branca, track the dissapearances of children and deal with the kidnapper/pedophile without the usual procedure and tact, hit the truth with a sledgehammer and it will freed.

Taut for a two hour pilot fraught with blue, green and yellow filters, slow camera movements from strange angles, switchpans and long distance, out of focus shots. The best of modern film-making on TV. It has fluid scene transitions of the San Franciso area in clouds, moon phases and other symbolic items that heighten the value of a production. The series is better because the characters have become developed and Taylor Pruitt Vince becomes the staple for the two realms he lives in, on Alpha 9 (his reality) and Earth. (his fantasy)

Great pilot and strong interestingly different cop show, that makes me vomit when I watch Cold Case or the ten billion other police dramas.
