Jack is a by-the-book detective whose habit of undermining himself has resulted in a dead-end position with the Police Dept. His partner Dan, a drunken, lecherous veteran hangs onto his job only because of one heroic act years ago.
Am so happy with this show. It's funny the actors can act and there are twists and turns that keep your interest unlike most of the other simplistic idiot violent shoot-em-up and show as much sex between Barbie & Ken like non actors. I hope it lasts. This and The Good Wife are the only two non-cable shows I will watch (except for old re- runs of shows when networks actually hired WRITERS who could write!!!)
Today most of the "hit" shows promote violence and hatred or concentrate on a world gone wrong where desolation and war are everywhere. A few try to recreate the old "family" morals of past years (fake of course as they never existed that way in real life) and kind of preach to the viewer as in some of the newer police shows. It's nice to watch something where the people are diverse not heroes, but not necessarily monsters either. I'm so sick of serial killers and pedophiles being portrayed in black and white cowboy vs. Indians pseudo dramas where there is no question as to who must win and that the ends justify all the means.
