Sooooo...we see in the listings this title on a Saturday night on CBS here in the States...we assume (wrongly?) that this is either a summer replacement show or a tease at something coming in the fall. We realized 10 minutes in that it was one of the shows with an unnamed city, no name of city on police cars, fuzzed out license plates, etc. This, alone, made us suspicious. Then, as to the plot: we were frankly confused as to who we were supposed to root for. Yes, we GET it -- cops are sometimes portrayed wrongly by the press and public. But this seems to be out to make cops look incredibly whiny and pathetic. A walk out??? We honestly think that kind of action here in the states is illegal. We have heard of a "sick out" to protest something, but for cops to just walk off the job because they don't like something or they don't get their way is too weird. That's when I got up from the couch, came to computer, and checked out IMDb on this show. I needed a little background, and I got it. Not sure what CBS is going to do with this -- it just wasn't very appealing. Acting wasn't great, situations were just odd, and oh by the way, any woman in a uniformed service here in the states has to have her hair up off her collar. Being military, this irked me! Can't explain why -- it just looked so weird to see all your model-quality policewomen with their hair flowing down their uniforms. And when old cop died -- yeah, doubt if he would get a formal police funeral here in the states, no matter what the union did.
Bottom line -- we GET it -- we just didn't like it. Made cops look whiny, petulant, and controlled by their union.
