I love this show; Anastasia Griffith is beautiful and plays smart well, I am a fan of Cliff Curtis, and I have sort of missed Jamey Sheridan since Deakins retired on "L&O: Criminal Intent".
But it bugs me that lacks the intensely researched hospital setting of "Scrubs", the procedural accuracy of the police investigations on "Starsky and Hutch" Or the gritty and hardcore legal milieu of "Ally McBeal".

Not every show or movie can go on location or afford to research all relevant social aspects like "Star Wars".
