This is one of the best TV series' ever
20 February 2005 | by kiddglockSee all my reviews

along with "Profit". It's ironic that they both came out in 1996, at about the same time. Neither lasted very long, which is possibly a commentary on popular taste.

The premise was that a semi-disgraced cop would go undercover in his old neighborhood to bring down a low-level but rising gang of hoodlums. Joe Pantoliano as the crime boss was wonderful. The whole cast was uniformly excellent and included the old master-Rod Steiger. The setting was great. Everything about the show reeked of quality. It only lasted a few episodes and then was gone forever. Could the quality have been maintained in the long haul? I doubt it, but taken on its own with no consideration of what might have been, this is one of the best series' ever.
