Storyline

There's no crisis situation they can't handle... unless it involves each other. Matt Flannery and Emily Lehman are the top-ranked negotiators in the FBI's Crisis Negotiation Unit (CNU). They're trained to talk their way through volatile situations. They're experts at knowing what makes other people tick. They're also sleeping together... a secret that they agreed to keep to themselves, until Matt revealed it to the entire world during a tense hostage standoff. The public revelation causes friction between Matt, who doesn't take much seriously and relies on gut instinct, and Emily, an academic who analyzes every move. Their relationship also gets them into major trouble with their boss, Cheryl Carrera, head of the Los Angeles CNU, and raises eyebrows among their CNU colleagues, including intelligence officer Lia Mathers. While Matt and Emily should be split up for being romantically involved, they're too valuable as a team. Together, they're among the best in their field; Cheryl knows ... Written by Anonymous

User Reviews

 
Grade A Entertainment. Not to be missed.

I know a lot of people don't enjoy this show, but we are already into the 2nd episode, and I find this show really great. The chemistry between the two lead characters are just plain great, and the rest of the cast is excellent. And the situations these people are put up against are not your average crisis, these are ones with point, and interest.

This is a great show. Anybody who thinks differently should catch the reruns and rethink their critique. If you give it a chance then you might actually enjoy it. This show is not a bomb like some people say. I can see this show having more than 1 season. Maybe more than 2 or 3 for that matter. I've got my fingers crossed.
