Storyline

Major Crime is a metaphor for East and West, for the conscious and unconscious, for reconciliation and difference, for hope versus despair, as Malik struggles toward the sunlight while Crowley descends into the abyss. The tragedy, that the only thing that separated them was their own inability to know themselves is a universal human truth that transcends the difference between Muslim and non-Muslim Written by Kris Wyld

User Reviews

Poor English

I've seen only 2 episodes so far, but both have been very good.

Very believable acting by the main character, the Muslim police officer. I'm not really sure where the action takes place, either New Zealand or Australia.

This show is very different from US cop shows (ex. CSI: Miami or Third Watch). More fast-paced, less focus on forensics but more emphasis on the characters and how they get on with each other.

The only problem is the heavy accent of the actors. I have to turn on the text caption to figure out what they're saying because they talk very fast and half the time it doesn't sound like English (and yes I know the main character speaks arabic sometimes... that's not what I'm talking about).
