nothing new, save the J.Lo stamp
5 March 2016 | by blanche-2See all my reviews

One of the people reviewing on the board thought this was an original idea. She never saw The Shield, I guess.

Like Shades of Blue, The Shield was about a group of crooked cops, led by Michael Chiklis. Here, it's Ray Liotta as Matt Wozniak, working with a group made up of Harlee (J. Lo), Tess (Drea DeMatteo), Michael (Dayo Okenyi), Marcus (Hampton Fluker) and others.

Harlee is a single mother with a daughter (Cristina Santos). She is having some financial problems. She is approached by the FBI in the person of Robert Stahl (Warren Kole). She can cooperate and help them get Wozniak or she can go to prison given what they have on her. She reluctantly cooperates, but Wozniak is so paranoid and nervous, she has to be extra-careful. Plus she is torn because of her loyalty to Wozniak.

This isn't a bad show. I think people are hard on Jennifer Lopez and here's why: She's a high-profile celebrity who has a lot written about her personal life, she shows up to awards shows in some flimsy fashions, and she's a singer and dancer. When people look at her, they see Jennifer Lopez, diva.

None of that means that she can't act. I thought she was wonderful as Selena, and she's good in this.

The problem with the show is that because it's Jennifer Lopez, we constantly see her taking off her clothes, working out at the gym, having sex, showing cleavage and then being a tough-as-nails cop, all the while with perfect hair and make-up. And did I mention she's 46 years old. Also, all the guys want her. It's too much, and as a result, the show is criticized.

Lopez needs to lose herself in this role a little more and be a female cop and less dishy - a little less makeup, some unstyled hair, a few less love scenes and a few less times she strips down should do it. She would still be beautiful but a little more human. Then I think people might be more receptive.

The rest of the cast is very good -- Ray Liotta is terrific - he looks and is terrifying; Drea DeMatteo from "The Sopranos" is very believable as a policewoman with personal problems; Warren Kole seems young for his job but he's okay. A good cast has been assembled.

There's nothing wrong with being a derivative show - most shows are. For what it is, it's dark and pretty good.
