Storyline

This dark and moody cop show focused on Rose "Phil" Phillips, the only female homicide detective in an otherwise all-male precinct in Portland, Oregon. Not only did Phil have to fight crimes, she also had to deal with the sexist attitudes of many of her fellow detectives, most notably Missing Persons Det. Barbini. Her confidante on the force was Vitelli, an internal affairs investigator with whom she had an on-again off-again romantic involvement. Having lost her original partner and mentor, Frank Fusco in the pilot episode, Phil initially worked alone, later teaming up with Beck and Papadakis. Written by Annomous

Another quality show killed by networks
24 December 1998 | by missluSee all my reviews

At the time of release, critics simplified this as an Americanized version of Prime Suspect. While that should have peeked interest, it did the series no justice. Well-defined, flawed characters did not make it an easy, mindless program to watch. It was very complex and more human than series are generally allowed to be.
