Agree with the Stupid Rating
4 January 2015 | by (California) – See all my reviews

I have to say this about this series. First, I'm glad it didn't continue. Secondly, if the police in Britain are this inept and incompetent, crime is bound to soar. How any self-respecting writer or producer could sketch out this storyline is beyond me. Thorne has no more business being the head of a crime unit than the man in the moon and the portrayal is an insult to the police of that country. Ms. Oh's character should have gotten a slap in the face and boot in her butt, but apparently continued on. I couldn't stand to watch this indigestible pap any longer than the scene in the car. I"m not sure why British crime series seem to take such miserably incompetent characters as realistic. Some idea that flawed characters acting out make good television? Wouldn't be too off the base except for the fact I can not in my mind picture any self-respecting police force putting up with these losers. Is this supposed to be realistic? And don't get me wrong, much American television is simply too perfect, but somewhere there has to be a meeting ground. This obviously wasn't it. "Rosemary & Thyme" "Broadchurch" are far better examples of good television.
