Alicia has been a good wife to her husband, a former state's attorney. After a very humiliating sex and corruption scandal, he is behind bars. She must now provide for her family and returns to work as a litigator in a law firm.
Brilliant LAPD detective Charlie Crews has survived the extreme abuse befalling an innocent cop in prison, and was exonerated for the murders and released after 12 years of hell in jail. He could retire on his settlement, but chooses to resume police work. Nevertheless, the grim experience has made him more philosophical and tempted to put justice - especially for the innocent - above chasing the presumably guilty and legally by-the-book, as his new partner Dani Reese must experience and learn to cope with.

I promised myself not to get hooked on any new TV show this season as there were a handful of shows i loved last season that got cancelled...
well, so much for that.... i hated both CHUCK and BIONIC WOMAN pilots with utter disgust and yet these two are NBC's flagship banners this season... chances are, they both will survive over the shows that had more quality: LIFE and JOURNEYMAN finally. a cop drama that had substance in it. charlie crews stroke me as the DR HOUSE of the cop drama world.
his being not attuned to the technological advancements since being locked in, provides the comic relief of the show...
charlie crews' partner has an interesting storyline as well.
the pilot episode seems to be suited to how things are going on today.
it's an irony that a guy who hasn't been in touch with the world solved a mystery that includes the word "I.M" ( a little spoiler there)...
well, just a heads up for everybody. you should definitely check this show out. my wednesdays @ 9pm are locked in for this show.
PS: NBC, please don't pull a FOX on this one.
