NYPD Blue meets The FBI
The creative strategy behind this show is so similar to NYPD Blue, that I'm not sure it will attract enough viewers, as it doesn't really offer much that is different. Ed O'Neill plays a boorish character heavily borrowed from Sipkowicz of "Blue," but without some redeeming qualities.

Also, the show is very dark (visually and thematically) and humorless, to the point where it becomes tiring. Perhaps this will change with time. So far (2 episodes), there's been a lot of plot to cover.

The relationship between the younger FBI agent and his informer (also a childhood friend) is the best thing about the show, as well as the low-key intelligence that David Strathairn brings to the role of the director of the NYC office of the FBI. Unfortunately, the show is more geared around O'Neill than Strathairn, who is relegated to a Sam Waterston type role (and not the Waterston of "Law & Order."). He deserves better.

I don't think this one will make it. Milch's previous CBS outing," Brooklyn South" had a more engaging group of characters.
