COULD have been great........but falls short in too many areas.
Within the first few frames of the movie, the main plot is revealed, and it's as old as the hills. I won't talk about it or my review will be classed as containing a 'spoiler'.
The acting is quite good and the sets and scenery is as well.
The casting was, for the most part at least, reasonably good but the writing.....it's SO predictable that almost every crisis-point is telegraphed ahead and ANYTHING that might later be a clue is shamelessly fore-shadowed so clearly that even a neophyte can recognize them.
The direction the 'plot' takes is so simple and singularly focused that events that would be UN-included in a serious series, are included and presented as casually as if it were a cartoon.
The first episode was not terrible but from then on it becomes increasingly predictable and at the same time implausible.
I was SERIOUSLY disappointed but then again.....why did I expect more
Don't waste your time on this VERY THIN 'you'll get what's coming to you" police drama...it's not worth it.
