In a dystopian mega-city on Earth in 2070, David Hume's a smart dedicated human and his partner, Ian Farve's an android of mysterious origins. The two detectives of Citizens Protection Bureau (CPB) who investigate crimes related to a few powerful companies who control the world.
By no means am I saying this was bad series or anything, but it copied alot. It did have a neat sense of techno style that to me seemed taken from Phillip K. Dick's other famous movie adaptation: Blade Runner, and not entirely from the movie Total Recall. It also reminded me alot of the series TekWar with its future cops trying to thwart criminals that use the future's techno devices to commit their crimes and spread chaos in the uncertain times of the 21st century. Its a shame it was cancelled so early when we have bonifide sci-fi crap hogging our screens. This show at least proved refreshing in the old cops and robbers game can be dressed up to look new.
