Cagney is mean
30 January 2019 | by jodi-44528See all my reviews

This isn't specific to this title, but over the past couple of seasons, the character of Cagney has gotten very mean to everyone around her, especially to Mary Beth. Cagney is loud and spoiled and pushy. She won't listen to anyone. She is always unreasonable and always thinks hers is the only opinion that matters. She rushes to judgment and makes questionable decisions. After she earned the rank of sergeant, she let the power go to her head and rubbed it in Lacey's face as often as she could. She regularly makes snarky remarks about Lacey's life as a mother and wife. If I was Lacey I would have gotten a different partner years ago. (And Lacey has her own issues, but overall, I think she tries to be a good and honest person and be the best cop she can.) I remember watching this show when it was on the air, when I was growing up. But I don't remember all the yelling and the anger involved between the different characters. I'll finish the series, but I am not enjoying it to the point I had hoped to.
