Trivia

The title of this series is the reason why Microsoft unsuccessfully tried to renew the trademark of the fighting game franchise of the same name in 2012. However, in early 2013, Fox and Microsoft signed a Trademark Coexistence Agreement, which would allow both companies to use similar branding. See more »

Really Thrilling!
28 October 2005 | by (Kansas City, MO) – See all my reviews

Killer Instinct is a really good show filled with a lot of suspense! But I hope this show lasts long even though FOX put the show on a tough night which is Friday. But I think this show might do well since some of the writers are the same writers who did some of the popular CSI shows! Killer Instinct is a bizarre, edge to your seat, thrilling cop show that centers around Detective Jack Hale (Johnny Messner) of the S.F.P.D's deviant crime unit. Hale has chosen to be on the front line of the city's toughest division after taking a hiatus from the force following the death of his partner, whom he had a personal relationship with in the line of duty. Intesnse and Private, Hale is haunted by his own personal demons and fights to save his sanity and career but continues to solve these crimes along with Detective Danielle Carter (Kristen Lehman) and Lt. Matt Cavanaugh (Chi McBride). This show premiered on FOX, September 2005.

User Rating: 9/10

BOTTOM LINE: THRILLING!
