Just finished watching the season premiere of Dark Blue and decided to do a quick review over the show.
Dylan McDermott... Just isn't right for this role. Every other movie I've seen him in, he naturally plays the part, but in this... I don't like him. Something in the way he acts is different. This may be construed as a minor complaint, but if it's with the protagonist, it foretells of other evils to come.
Aycox wasn't seen enough in the pilot to really form an opinion over. I'm hoping for the best, but gearing up for the less-than-best.
The other two actors are really in their element, aside from the fact that this is basic cable. It seems to me that if the show had been on HBO, they'd be using systematic foul language and vulgar terms. But the censorship doesn't detract from the pilot as much as you'd think.
All in all, a decent show to watch. It's not as good as say, the original Law & Order, or the original CSI. But it's definitely better than all the crap TNT has been spewing out lately, such as Bones and Charmed.
Perhaps this series could develop into something more over time, with the actors fitting into their roles more comfortably (especially McDermott) and a certain style developing. But my prediction is that the strong first season will be epically ruined in the "shocking new season" which usually happens with modern TV shows. Do what I did with this series: Hope for the best, but expect somewhat worse.
