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. Charlie's lawyer warns him that under the terms of his settlement, he is not to approach anyone previously involved in his case and that he is to stay away from Carl Ames. Written by garykmcd

Great character-driven cop show
11 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
