The police also find a threatening email addressed to high tech entrepreneur Erich Blunt, CEO of Applsn, demanding $50,000 or Neyers will "go public". Blunt denies ever having seen the email or knowing Neyers. The police however contact the parents of Neyers' old girlfriend, who died of a drug overdose some 22 years ago, and learn there is definitely a connection between Neyers and Blunt. Meanwhile, Blunt is dealing with a major lawsuit that accuses him of stealing someone's computer code. Both Hildy and Terry have complicated lives.

Great beginnings
10 June 2014 | by (France) – See all my reviews

I always loved Hill Street Blues and knowing Bochco in commands of this one, I was curious and after seeing it, not disappointed.

No murder case solved (and then some) after 40 minutes, taking time developing the characters, putting in place the delicate interactions...

Many interesting second-line roles there waiting to hatch.

Hope to see many many more episodes of this one. It could easily become with Justified and Longmire one of my favorites (True Detective is very good but it contains a little too much "implied fantasy" for a crime TV show).

Just loved it.
