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 get lots of guns, okay? People give them to me on the street. They give them to me for birthday presents. It's like I'm the NRA or something.

Excellent series - killed by lack of support from the networks
24 December 1998 | by missluSee all my reviews

Dark, brooding show with well defined characters. The acting was above average, especially the three leads. Unfortunately, they were never given the network support that is required for television programs of this sort.
