Good Show Love the Actors.
1 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are so many cop shows on TV now days, but a lot of them are over the top. I like that Prime Suspect is written around the main character and everything is played off of that. It's just a straight forward cop show nothing fancy like CSI and stuff like that. The actors are really good and at times the show is funny. I like it, it's simple and I am a simple person. The main actress which the show is based off of does a fantastic job, she is a really good actor. I love her personality on the show trying to make it in an all guy department, she holds her own. I also like how at the end of the day she shows vulnerability and emotion from the stress of her job as well as her personal life. I have never seen the British version and don't really care to. I know some might compare it to not as good as the British version; but being I have never watched that version, the show is great. Give it a chance and see for yourself.
