Awesome
23 December 2010 | by See all my reviews

I'm thoroughly impressed with Detroit 1-8-7. This show is much more down to earth than any other cop show out there. The attention it brings to a true American ghetto like Detroit is astounding. It sounds ridiculous, but I truly believe that shows like this one that encourage people to take back their city can really make a difference. I've even heard that this show is really boosting Detroit's economy.

Coming from the Rust Belt myself (Milwaukee native), I love seeing a setting I can actually relate to, instead of flashy cities like New York, L. A., or Miami all the time. Plus, the Fitch character is freaking fantastic.

ABC better not cancel this show. It's awesome. I think it'll catch on for sure if they give it enough time.
