Storyline

In early '90s Boston, Jackie Rohr, a renowned FBI agent, does not mind the culture of corruption or quid-pro-quo politics. But Decourcy Ward, the ambitious new Assistant District Attorney, wants to uproot the system. When an armored truck heist in Revere leaves three guards missing, Jackie and Decourcy struggle to align their moral compasses. However, the two men find themselves in a faux-alliance that may, ultimately, turn into something real. Written by SHOWTIME

Shows some promise but the pilot is a mix of good and bad
15 July 2019 | by joseph-masalskySee all my reviews

There is certainly a lot to get excited about here, a gritty crime drama with an early '90s Boston backdrop featuring a strong cast. The writing in this first episode tempered my excitement a little bit though. The dialogue is lazy and shoves exposition down your throat. Nobody in real life walks around saying "hey, remember who I am, how I got here and why I act the way I do?", especially not to people that already know all that. However, in this episode it happens a lot. I certainly would prefer to learn these details naturally over the course of the series. Hopefully after this first episode the writers have gotten that out of their system and can proceed with the storytelling, but until I see that I would give this a mild but hopeful recommendation.
