Storyline

It's a cop show with a twist. Lifetime's series explores the personal and professional lives of five very different policewomen in San Francisco. "The Division" features action, suspense, crime and cat-and-mouse chases. It also looks at the ups and downs of romance, family, motherhood and female friendships. It's good, old-fashioned drama about working women with real-life problems. Written by Anonymous

Aaron: Looking for these? There were in the hallway.
Jinny: Look, I just, I want you to know that I don't normally do this kind of thing. I had a little too much to drink at my friend's baby shower. Before I went to the bar and had some more to drink. Listen, I don't want to hurt your feelings or anything but, I can't see you again. So please don't ask for my phone number. The thing is, I'm engaged. I know, it's really complicated. At any rate.

Good premise, bad network
16 January 2001 | by Cyprus386See all my reviews

The gist: 5 female cops in San Francisco and their problems and adventures. Bonnie Bedelia, Lela Rochon, Tracey Needham, Nancy McKeon, and Lisa Vidal star in this series that is headed for doom while on the Lifetime network. Seeing the network, the episodes will most likely revolve around the whole "woman-in-peril" subplot. McKeon is a talented actress, as are the others, and shouldn't subject themselves to doing nothing except "woman-in-peril" stuff. This series might fare better on NBC, whose new season was met with insufficient failures. This show is ok, just needs a new network.
