User Reviews

LOV this show
20 January 2011 | by (austin, TX) – See all my reviews

I look forward to seeing Detroit 187 each week. The characters are so well defined & interesting. The show is more about them..then any crime they are solving. I love the way they follow each partner on their separate investigations and the interaction between each character. I really do not have a favorite character because each one is so well defined. I look forward to finding out more about each one as the show progresses.

Also love seeing the views of a City that was once Grand..the Old Mansonsthat are now in need to rehab are so interesting.

BUT where is my show? It wasn't on last week and I am worried they might have moved to another time...or were canceled. Please keep this show on the air.
