Did You Know?


Sean Catherine Derek and Laren Bright created the original story for the show. Sean Catherine Derek and Laren Bright wrote the original script based on their story. But BS&P didn't approve the script. Director Altieri recalled the script was much more complex when he received it: "We cut out flashbacks to Montoya's youth when she was called a liar. And flashbacks to Bullock's youth when he was playing high-school football when his dad yells at him because he was using teamwork: 'Don't be a team player, be a star. Being a team player is for losers. Go out for Number One, Pal." Many of the Scenes were taken out. Most of these informations can be seen in Animato Magazine Issue # 26 and #27. See more »

Almost Like A Film Noir
1 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Story-wise, this was the first one I saw that wasn't anything to rave about. It was okay; a little different in that it was a straight crime story, almost like an old film-noir from the 1940s, but no fascinating villain character that usually makes these episodes fun. It's basically three cops telling their version of what went down at a sting that went awry. One of the cops, the obnoxious and anti-Batman guy, "Harvey Bullock," is the liar of the three. One annoying PC aspect: the bravest, strongest cop, of course, is the female one. Puh-leeze, that tougher- than males-cop has been so unrealistically overdone every since "Charlie's Angels." Here, the woman literally a throws a big guy across a room. Sorry, it doesn't happen

Nonetheless, the thing that makes this episode worth watching is the stunning art work. If ever a cartoon from a comic book ever came to life in animation, this series is it and this episode gives the best example I've seen. The drawings, especially the facial close-ups, look like a big version of something straight out of a Batman comic. Unlike other drawings I've seen (the animated Superman series, for instance), the artists here truly make you think you are looking at a comic book that has come to life
