Give It a Chance!
12 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show is like a good wine - best if savored slowly, not in one gulp. Unfortunately, most TV execs seem to think a show has to be a "10" on episode #1. There are so many shows from years gone by that would never have had their long run if today's execs had been in charge. Just think "Hill St. Blues".

"Prime Suspect" started slowly, and with many stereotypes, but has matured nicely into a better-than-average drama. The character development is good and promises to continue, and lead Maria Bello as Jane Timoney is fabulous! Great supporting cast and improving writing should guarantee a 2nd season, but we viewers have to give it a boost.

Do yourself a favor and check it out!
