Not bad but familiar
It is like HBO's "The Wire," or past TV series about the intrigues of cops and robbers like "EZ Streets" (1996), "Wiseguy" (1987) or, to a lesser extent, "Big Apple" (2001). The trouble is that so far it looks better than "Big Apple" but not quite as good as "The Wire" (though it is probably easier to follow) and not as good and lyrical as "EZ Streets." The point is that, except for "Wiseguy" and the one on HBO, the most recent of these similar series have been canceled after very short runs. I would like to see more of this show before deciding, but the pilot seems fairly good. I just don't see why, if viewers didn't watch a show like "EZ Streets," they would watch this one. I agree that David Paymar is an unexpected choice to play a villain. I don't think he's played one before. He is a good actor, though, and seems to pull it off so far.
