Recognizing a Hit SHow
3 April 2011 | by joval2011See all my reviews

I love the grittiness of this show. The story lines are real, they do not need the crutch of fancy special effects like all of the CSI shows use. Detroit 1-8-7 deserves respect. There are other shows that are also good but unfortunately too many bad shows stay on the air because they appeal to the masses. Give them more good shows like this one and the networks will have a whole new audience.

If this show is canceled because some network executive cannot recognize a quality show then I hope it gets picked up by one of the cable channels with more vision and respect for the viewers.

In summary, this show has all the ingredients for a hit. It has well-developed characters, drama, grit, humor,and the best acting in its stars.
