This seems to be a repeating theme in all the previous comments. This show is all grit and grim with absolutely no flashy gimmicks. It has a really dedicated ensemble cast. Given a chance to thrive (with everyone growing into their respective roles) The Line will be the 'dark horse' show to watch out for.
What draws you in are the characters - rogue burnt out cops, a self-loathing legal aid, a fearless no-nonsense janitor and an anxiety attack ridden, drug dealer caught up in the middle of two rival gangs. The show in essence is a police drama yet there are no heroes here - just emotionally, psychologically and physically scarred human beings 'just trying to make a living' as Hector the drug dealer states in the second episode.
No flash, no pizazz - no putting on of shades trying to look cool between takes - just pure drama. From violent heartache to disturbing humour, this show makes no apologies for what it is.
Good solid entertainment!
