Storyline

Eddie Torres (Michael DeLorenzo) and J.C. Williams (Malik Yoba) are two detectives of the 4th precinct of New York City. In their jobs, they fight against the worst of the society infiltrated like the bandits who try to stop. Their honesty and good making shocks against the lawless world of the criminals and the lawyers who serve to the own criminals. In their work, they have the help of their boss, Lieutenant Virginia Cooper (Patti D'Arbanville), a hard character woman who knows the streets like no one that she cares that their agents don't use illegal ways in their cases, at the same time that she watches another couple of good agents, Tommy McNamara (Jonathan LaPaglia) and Nina Moreno (Luna Lauren Valez), who often times work with Torres and Williams. All together, they try to clean the streets of the criminal plague that invades the city. Written by Chockys

The Best Police Drama Of The 90's!!
3 February 2005 | by davesmoothSee all my reviews

This series was without a doubt, the best police drama made in the 90's. It was action packed, contemporary, well written, cutting edge material. The show evolved around the characters of J.C.Williams & Eddie Torres who were so connected with the gritty streets of N.Y.C., it made them naturals for the undercover work that they were assigned. Lt. Cooper was perfect as the no nonsense commander of the unit who gave them just enough flexibility to get the job done. The story lines read out of the newspaper of the day and every week, they would have whoever was the top current musical artist perform at "Natalie's", so the show stay current with the times.

The show went south when the stars tried to pull a "Friends" and demand higher salaries and wanted their contracts renegotiated. The producers responded by killing off Torres and replacing Cooper. It was a shame, because the show was a hit. After DeLorenzo & D'Arbanville left the show, it only lasted one more season, and it was not as good as the first three seasons. I'm not sure if it is on DVD, but if it is, it's worth the price.
