Fun time
Had a great time watching this short-lived series. Sorvino as a bulky, over-the-hill cop becoming a rookie again. The guy's got more charm than his daughter Mira. One great episode involved a group of visiting Japanese cops whom Sorvino had to escort around the city, while a series of burglaries occur. The leader of the group notices Sorvino's frustration from not being where the action is, so the group goes on the chase for the thieves and were mistaken for a roaming band of neighborhood vigilantes, scaring the crooks with their display of karate and jujuitso (I prefer they be called ninja vigilantes). Though it was cut short, the series did offer the best fun I had compared to those other high-profiled shows that flopped.
