Centers on Robert T. Ironside, a tough, sexy and acerbic police detective relegated to a wheelchair after a shooting who is hardly limited by his disability as he pushes and prods his hand-picked team to solve the most difficult cases.
The premise is distinctly American with a hearty dose of perverted Christian ethics and a hint of social Darwinism. Granted, the initial story arcs are a bit contrived and tend towards the pedantic... "Oh my gosh, what are we getting into??" becomes "I always thought poor people were people who couldn't get their acts together but now I know it is us rich people who are living lives of fantasy!!" and eventually into the aspect of "I've learned so much from these noble plebes!!" But we ought not forget the aspect of the master coming home in the night--the good will be rewarded with cold hard cash. Not uninterestingly, there appear to be no people of ill will in these impoverished neighborhoods. It is not immediately clear if this is because the bad people are out hustling for cold hard cash money BLING! or if the state of being destitute naturally imbues humans with the goodness that only poverty provides, but really, the point to be gleaned here is that Aaron is a huge douche and this show is going to take off big time.
