Just watched a couple of episodes - I have to say that the original Ironsidewas way better.
It was clever without relying on the fine looks of the actors. The original Ironside was cool and held my interest to the end of each episode, this updated version just does not...at all. I think the producers were attempting to do 'gritty', fast-paced and pretty - all at the same time. I was bored and literally switched off a number of times. I only recommend this to people who primarily watch TV to see actors with good looks. Otherwise this is a poor knock-off version of the original. Blair Underwood is far too good looking, too toned and too suave to play this role.
