Storyline

When a young couple -- war veteran Matt and his wife, Gwen Skokie -- are attacked in their Modesto, Calif., home, Matt dies and Gwen is left unconscious, barely clinging to life. As news of the brutal crime makes its way through the media, both sets of parents sit vigil by Gwen's bed, hoping for a miracle to keep her with them. The police investigation begins to close in on four suspects in the case, and shock waves radiate through the community, stirring up tensions along ethnic and racial lines. Written by Jwelch5742

Trivia

The peculiar structure in season 3, when several regular actors only appeared for half the season, had to be done mainly due to budget cuts. See more »

Goofs

The first season of the series takes place in Modesto, California but was filmed mostly in Texas. There are scenes when police vehicles have their lights on without a steady red light present. All police and emergency vehicles in California are required to have at least one steady red light on when the police/emergency lights on the front of police and emergency vehicles are on.

simply great
6 May 2017 | by See all my reviews

i still don't get the rating, it is one of the best series running. no cheap tricks, no "unexpected but seen a million times" turns and twists. each episode is just another brick in the wall for all the characters. and they are not black or white, they are grey. like everyone in real life. when they move to a darker or lighter shade of grey it is just life as it is. highly recommendable!!!
