Storyline

In an unnamed, broken-down city somewhere near the Canadian border, three violent men seem destined to come into conflict. Detective Cameron Quinn is searching for the man who killed his partner. Vicious mobster Jimmy Murtha may be the killer, but he's busy looking after old friend Danny Rooney, who just did three years in prison for a crime Murtha committed. Written by Alan Sepinwall <sepinwal@force.stwing.upenn.edu>

Trivia

In an interview with Scott Foundas that appeared in the November/December 2010 issue of Film Comment, Paul Haggis said about this show, "I wanted to do a television show that said, I'm going to show you the good guy, I'm going to show you the bad guy, and I'm going to make you hate the bad guy and love the good guy. Now watch this: you're about to love the bad guy and hate the good guy. Now you know what's what. Oh yeah? Watch this: you're about to love the good guy again and hate the bad guy again. And to just keep doing that over and over again, so we see how complex human beings truly are." See more »

Quotes

Murtha: I, I put six bullets in him. You're telling me I didn't kill him?
Mickey: It wasn't meant as a criticism.

I don't know where this show went wrong.
17 September 2000 | by See all my reviews

Like I said before, "I don't know where this show went wrong!". In my opinion (and to the opinion of many others by the voting statistics) this show was phenomenal! A 10/10! Quality t.v. for me next to the first season of Murder One and NYPD Blue. I thought Jason Gedrick had all the right moves first doing Murder One and then signing on to do EZ Streets, intelligent, realistic intriguing and compelling writing well executed by the the actors! From show one I was hooked! Not a single show in my opinion of this short lived series was boring or predictable. I don't know for the life of me why this show didn't catch on. A few hypotheses, one: the show was more a less one big story (for who knows to be the life of the series or for one season) which I guess audiences didn't have the patience for (like Murder One it took a chance, one big quality story for the long hall, at least for one season. But I believe unlike Murder One it didn't have brief preview summaries in which potential audiences who haven't seen the previous episodes could see to catch up on) two: it was in a competitive time slot with another popular t.v. series (although I don't recall any) and three: it didn't advertise itself correctly or frequently enough to get any significant attention, at least enough where a significant enough popluation could give it a chance. I thought this story rocked so hard my interest and curiousity that I am begging anyone to give me information where I can see the unaired episodes (which network) buy them (on video) and although I'm not a huge fan on reading if it is out in book format or script is for sale. Please help me if you can, I'm dying to know if that cop gets his revenge, wether Jason Gedrick gets back with his wife and makes a decent living, what happens to the beautiful seductress who's playing on both sides of the law, or the junkie mayor and the gambling contract, bring it on! Charlie.
