Bulletproof follows two cops, Bishop and Pike, as they chase down hardened criminals in London's East End. On the surface Bishop and Pike have a lot in common they are cool, smart, unapologetically street-wise and tough; they share a deep, fraternal relationship - and are always there for each other. However, they come from very different backgrounds and their personal motivations and emotional lives outside the police force differ as a result: Pike is an aspirational family man, the son of a decorated police officer who's determined to follow in his father's footsteps, but not be in his shadow. Bishop grew up in care homes and on the streets, and never knew his father. Despite these differences Bishop and Pike are bonded by the same moral code and work brilliantly well together even when the chemistry between them looks set to explode.
This show had a great Pilot in my opinion, giving you an understanding of both the main characters and their partnership together. It was action pact, not overly dramatic, moments to laugh and really captured the culture of London and what it's like to be from there. I recommend giving it a chance to watch and for it to develop before you criticise on the way it is just because people may not understand the culture behind it.
