I love the crime show genre, and this one is different enough to stand out from the crowd and entice me to watch every episode. Too many crime shows are built from the same mold. This show contains plenty of storyline and plot development, but still has a certain amount of thrill to it...so its not just mindless guts and gore, its not just another Drama, not just another who-dun-it show. I think it dips its toes just enough into each.
Cracked is a well written, nicely developed crime show. I love the character development over time, the subtlety between characters one can pick up on if you watch every episode...
If you are looking for a more compassionate crime show, Cracked is for you. It focuses on Crimes involving the mentally ill in a manner in which I think we all wish real life police officers would.
All In all I give Cracked a full rating, because it gave me everything I look for in a new crime show.
