Originally 13 episodes were ordered. ABC cut the episode order to eight, but canceled the show after only four episodes. The remaining four hours were "fired off" on Saturdays, months later. See more »
When I saw the preview for the primer of The Evidence, I though, "Oh no, not another cop show," but by the end of the hour, I realized this is definitely not just another cop show. I loved the playful banter between Orlando Jones and Rob Estes. The dialogue was quick witted and often times very funny. The over all look of the show was very contemporary, without being pretensions. I am usually disappointed when a show tries to look edgy and new. Often times this means a shaky camera and pointless cuts. While The Evidence was very "cutty," in the end it all added up to a very cool style.
I was also very drawn into Cole's (Rob's) back-story. His wife's unsolved murder reminded me of Molder's obsession with his sister's abduction in the X-files. I hope, like the X-files, this story thread is recurring though out the season. I'm intrigued keep them coming.
