Trivia

NBC executives disliked the character of Officer Dewey Dudek and wanted him to be killed off when the show was airing on NBC. See more »

Goofs

Throughout the series, real Los Angeles thoroughfares or sections are named (e.g. Rodeo, Florence, Vermont), while scenery is nowhere near the real life locations. Even fictitious addresses aren't within the range seen on the real street (e.g. 1024 Rodeo Rd. can't exist on a street that only goes as far east as the 2000 West block). See more »

Well done!
12 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I work in the field, and I was genuinely impressed. Based on the pilot this show looks like it could be excellent. What strikes me is the focus on the very real impact of the job on the officers. In the real world, an officer doesn't fire his or her weapon at another person and then respond in a cavalier way or crack one liners (as you might believe from watching other cop dramas). The normal reaction is actually shock, and a massive adrenaline dump. and it takes time to process and deal with it. And as for language, I agree that I would rather see this show on cable where the realistic language wouldn't have to be bleeped out. Real officers and real bad guys don't say 'shucks and darn'... But bravo for NBC for putting something like this together. Can't wait to see more!
