Tom Selleck plays top cop for the NYPD
on December 24, 2010
I was drawn to this series by Tom Selleck. It looked stronger than other series coming out of the starting gate, incorporating elements of Charles Bronson's Family Of Cops as well as Hill Street Blues, one of the best police series ever. The dialogue and acting will become more natural as the cast and crew gain experience. Some of the police work is absurdly miraculous. One senses that the original scripts called for a couple hours per episode, and someone gave the order to snip them down to twenty minutes, thus robbing stories of smoother development. This feeling is particularly strong in an episode that pays tribute to officers affected by the tragedies that occurred on 911.
I like the inter-generational aspect that touches on issues pertaining to the changing nature of police work. If you like police drama with some "police humor," check it out!
