This series follows a single case from beginning to end for each season. It's produced by Steven Bochco, the granddaddy of modern TV cop shows. It lasted 3 seasons on TNT. Terry English (Taye Diggs) and Hildy Mulligan (Kathleen Robertson) are San Francisco police investigating partners. In the first season, they're investigating internet entrepreneur Erich Blunt (Tom Felton) after the deaths of his father and the flight attendant of his private jet.
As a police procedural, there isn't anything ground breaking or anything that Bochco hasn't done himself countless times. Following a single case for the whole season is not necessarily new either. It's good enough for a TV show even thought the genre is saturated. The two leads are capable TV actors but there was a few missteps. They try a romantic subplot which crash and burn. It's a little bit of a struggle but I think they start developing chemistry after they drop the romance. Tom Felton is still not a big presence and he's sometimes overshadowed by the bigger actors. That works sometimes but I think he needs another gear which is still beyond him for now. This promises to be a proficient procedural but not much more.
