Andre Braugher is, with this show, finally able to show the dark side we got glimpses of with the Homicide series. Nick is not so ruthlessly attached to being in control, and shows some emotion that we Homicide buffs thirsted for from Det. Pembleton.

He is, as always, convincing as hell, but now has a much more human spin to his character that makes his magnetism even more powerful.
I intend to keep up with this series for as long as the TV gods let us have it.
