Storyline

A heist gone wrong. A gunman with an AK-47. Three officers trapped without ammo. His partner frozen in fear, Detective Jim Dunbar without hesitation took action of intense bravery that killed the gunman, saved the officers and made him a hero. He also took a bullet that blinded him forever. Most officers injured in the line of duty opt for desk jobs or early retirement. Not Dunbar. He's rehabilitated both body and attitude and fought his way back to active duty. His fresh start at a new precinct is threatened by the simple truth that no one really wants him there. His new partner, Karen Bettencourt, doesn't trust that she can rely on him. However, being blind makes Dunbar a better cop than he ever has been. Steven Bochco's drama stars Ron Eldard (frequent guest star of ER (1994) as Dunbar, who tackles the issue of handicapped employees head-on. Unique visual effects give us a window on what Dunbar "sees" with his remaining senses, as he learns to be a better cop and a better man. He ... Written by Anonymous

why is it not playing anymore
12 August 2007 | by See all my reviews

i thought this show was amazing i watched it every time it was on. it was an awesome show and ron eldard was freaking hott. i wish they would put it back on TV. come on HBO this is the shows that you like to produce or oxygen. i want to know what happens and that was only suppose to be the season finale and it ended up being the series finale. the show could have been as hott as CSI or ER or Nip Tuck if they would have kept it on the air. Or the next Law & Order. but the show was excellent. a perfect 10. i was fascinated with the show. it was about a blind cop who was trying to prove himself worthy of still being a cop and he was until the show was canceled. it there any one that loved the show as much as me??? if you thought this was an awesome show tell me??? if you also know why it was canceled inform me i would love to know.
