"the 'shield" who?
"wanted" is a unique cop show. All the comparisons to "The Shield' are getting to be a bit much. "Wanted" is a show unto it's self...it stands on it's on. So, okay, "The Shield' is an edgy cop drama. So were "Homicide: Life on the Street", "NYPD Blue", and the "Law and Order" franchise series. Most of those series came before "the Shield". So, who's copying who? "Wanted"is an edgy show that pushes the envelope and makes no excuses. It's in you face, and i love that about the show. The team is full of wonderfully eccentric, bad-ass, tainted, lovable, hateful, charming, and crude people.
All the actors in this drama are FIRST rate. My faves are Ryan Hurst, Gary Cole, Lee Tergesen, and Josey Scott. Actually, i adore them all, but, these 4 guys just make the show perfection. Ryan is an immensely talented actor. He's made Jimmy McGloin a deeply intriguing and sympathetic character. He's got an innocence about him, yet he's a ball of rage. He's a very flawed character, but he always has his heart in the right place...even if his methods may shock you. He's the heart and soul of the team. Gary Cole makes Conrad Rose a force to be reckoned with. He's the boss of the team, and his underlings damn well better tow the line. He's tough as nails, and all in your face when you screw up...but, he's loyal to a fault, especially with members like Jimmy. He knows who he can always count on and trust no matter what goes down...and, that's usually jimmy and eddie. So, even when they're wrong or make mistakes, Connie has their back. He'll chew 'em out...but, no one else had better mess with his people. He's the daddy, and he's tough...but, true. Lee Tergesen plays Eddie Drake. He's crude, off the wall, and a real ass sometimes. But, he's a lovable ass :) Lee really makes the character likable, and oh so funny. Josey Scott plays Rodney Gronbeck. He's the teams wisenhiemer computer geek. Only, he ain't geeky. He's hard-core, heavy-metal cool. He's really the more level headed of the team, and the one that usually gets the best lines. The dialog between he and Jimmy, or he Eddie is priceless. The best partners on the show are Jimmy and Eddie. The show doesn't really have regular partner pairings of the cops, but Eddie and Jimmy do work as a team a lot. And, they are awesome together. They are so different in personality, life style, and beliefs. But, somehow, they're best friends. They'e like the ying&yang of the team. They argue, rag on each other, but they both have the same cop out-look. They both employ the same methods when it comes to getting the job done. Ther're loyal to each other, and everyone on the team, even if they don't like 'em. It's difficult to put into words, except to say, they're just an entertaining pair to watch..,great chemistry there. I haven't enjoyed a cop pairing this much since "Homicide: Life on the Street's" Frank Pembleton and Tim Bayliss. That's saying a lot.
It's rumored the show has been cancelled. i really hope not. I've grown to love it, and will miss it like crazy if they take it away forever. I love these guys. I love this team or angsty, imperfect characters. They're so real, so vibrant. I don't want to have to say good-bye to them or this edgy, full throttle show. Live 'Wanted"...LIVE,
