Deputy Police Chief Brenda Johnson runs the Priority Homicide Division of the LAPD with an unorthodox style. Her innate ability to read people and obtain confessions helps her and her team solve the city's toughest, most sensitive cases.
Women's Murder Club was the good surprise of the season.
it's well-written, well-acted, has beautiful cinematography and engages the viewer intelligently.
In other words, it's a far cry from the umpteen bad shows that the networks introduced this year.
Sadly, it was never promoted heavily by ABC and thus still hasn't reached its full commercial potential. Regardless, it's been doing extremely well in the ratings and won its night regularly. What more can a network want? The characters are all very real and engaging and while the personal stories have a danger to fall into soapy, they've so far remained engaging and have been balanced very well with the "crime of the week".
The creators have all been fired by the network, and I hope the new people ABC will bring in won't turn this into another unwatchable soap opera.
