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.

NBC did a horrible job advertising this new show and I almost didn't watch the first episode because it didn't look like it was worth watching, I glad I did. The writers thew in a great combination of humor and suspense. How often do you see a chase seen end with a cop and suspect duking it out in a knife fight? Unlike other police shows, this show you really don't know if the victim will actually turn out to be the criminal - in the last episode I watched I found myself going back and forth believing victim, no, criminal, no, victim, no, criminal......
I should point out that this show may not seem to be so great at first but once you've gotten to know the characters you'll find yourself waiting anxiously for the next episode. This is a show you grow into.
