Not great but I liked it
3 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A pretty good cop show by Steven Bochco. It got a lot of controversy at the time because the pilot show had (for TV) a pretty graphic scene where a man gets shot in the head.

It started out with fairly good ratings but slowly sank till it was canceled. It was was no masterpiece but people kept comparing it to "NYPD Blue" which was a better show--there was no way they could compete. Still it was well-acted and written--I especially liked Jon Tenney as one of the main characters. Towards the end (in a desperate attempt to get higher ratings) they had an episode where Tenney showed his butt and publicized it a LOT. Unfortunately it didn't save the show.

So, a pretty good show that deserved a better chance.
