A fresh, old story
27 October 2011 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

With all sorts of shows coming out this year featuring a strong female lead, this one by far has the strongest. She's head-strong, unrelenting, ambitious, driven, willful and carries a duffle bag full of vices which brings a depth to her character rarely seen in cop shows, but makes her very likable as well as human.

The show is gritty and feels a bit more realistic than most of the high-tech, ultra-forensic one- man cop shows that seem to come and go every season. It takes a team to catch the bad guys and suspects don't always willingly confess to murder (who would really?) There's tension and rivals among the police and detectives, as well as sexism you'd expect to see in a male dominate New York police force.

All in all, this show is very well done with a great cast and believable plot lines. I hope it can find its audience to gather momentum and keep going.
