Alicia has been a good wife to her husband, a former state 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.
Charlie Crews and his partner investigate the apparent carjacking and murder of a young woman. Her husband was wounded in the attack and has only limited memories of what happened. When they arrest the likely carjacker and the victim refuses to identify him, the police wonder what he may be hiding. Charlie also visits the retired police officer who investigated his case, Carl Ames. The man remains convinced that Crews is guilty but Charlie now has evidence that the fourth member of the family he was falsely convicted of killing, Rachel Seybolt, was in the house at the time of the murders and not at a sleep over as the investigator claimed.

When Crews and Reese are questioning Manny Umaga in interrogation, Manny hits his head on the table and accuses Crews of causing the injury. It appears that Crews could have pushed Umaga to the table by the position of his hands on Umaga's back. Seconds later, a security camera replay of the incident is shown by Lt. Davis. In the replay, the position of Crews hands as he touches Umaga are obviously different and seem innocent. See more »

Damian Lewis (Band of brothers, An Unfinished Life) gives a great performance in this new cop show about a man who was unfairly prosecuted and imprisoned for a crime he did not commit. I started with this episode, as I was not aware of this series. I am glad I got tuned into it.
Lewis is ably assisted by Sarah Shahi (For Your Consideration) and Adam Arkin (Halloween H20: 20 Years Later, "Chicoago Hope"). The three of them really make the show worth watching as they add humor to the drama. It is a slow show in that the characters are more fully developed than is usual for the typical cop show that focuses on action. Action is essential, but not overwhelming.
It also reminds me a lot of The Fugative as Lewis search for clues as to who really committed the crime he was incarcerated for.
Got to catch the first two episodes before next week.
