Best New Cop Show I've Seen In Years
Briefly, this show incorporates the best aspects of some of the old favorites: the style of Miami Vice, the dialog of, I don't know, a great buddy cop show with a serious edge, .... Also, it appears that while every episode will have a solved murder, ala CSI, there is also a through line with the main character, Sean Cole, ala Lost, where the audience will undoubtedly tune in to see what will happen with the memories of his dead wife--perhaps he will even begin to solve the case little by little. This subplot was the most intriguing part of the show for me. In fact, I watched the first episode with about 8 friends, and the thing we kept talking about most was the dead wife subplot.
One question... wait two. Does every woman on the show, regardless of her job (from the cops to the lab dorks) have to be a model? And is this why every character on the show seems to have some sort of sexual tension with every other character on the show--even Martin Landau?
A great replacement for Invasion.
