At last, a real NY eye candy
The only reason I am not voting 10 for this masterpiece is because I don't want this review to seem too rash, but believe me, this one is the new, if not a better - third watch. For those of you who enjoy the fast pacing, fresh, almost intoxicating feeling of the New York jungle style police\action drama shows, and miss the writing and acting style forgotten in the scripts of "third watch", "ER" (though set in Chicago) and a likes - you are going to feel that "thing" again.. I almost fear of liking this show too much as unfortunately the TV crowd these days have succumbed to the vampire\zombie trash (no offense)and cannot take in the amazing atmosphere this great show has to offer. Atmosphere, that's what it's all about, and it's back!
story wise - I can say for sure it's started out quite good, giving the viewer the usual point of view of the inner works of the police precinct, the usual good and bad guys, which will soon surprise us (or not..) as being the opposite, but that's a good thing, that's what we are missing today, something old and comforting, almost womb like, but still fresh and new.
Actors - I had good hopes for this show solely after looking at the casting, and they delivered; Adam Goldberg, with his Jeff Goldblumish feel is amazing as always, Leelee Sobieski we all know and love is a bit slow at the beginning but catching on, the new skin's are quite good as well, especially Harold House Moore which shines and promises a good, stable and confident acting role.
watch this one, you'll see what I mean, this one should be with us for a long time.
