I was skeptical about yet another cop show, but I decided to give the pilot a try. The cast looked interesting, at the very least. It wasn't an easy decision since it's been a busy season for new shows and there is a lot of competition for my DVR's time. I watched the pilot and knew that this was not only on my list for the season, but was possibly going on my favorites list. I really don't want to see it canceled.
Even though the episodes deal with serious issues, there's this great, twisted sense of humor and camaraderie between the detectives that makes this fun to watch. And right from the beginning I couldn't help but root for Maria Bello's Jane Timoney. I want her to succeed because she's tough, passionate about her job and not afraid of getting dirty. I enjoy the other characters, too, which may be as much about the quality of the actors as the writing. They are a good fit.
