Television needs yet another procedural crime show just about as much as it needs more reality TV. You can't turn the dial without hitting some form of CSI or NCIS or L&O or one of their lighthearted cable cousins. So when "The Glades" popped up on the A&E, I was pretty hesitant about giving it a shot. It definitely falls into the comic caper category popularized by the USA network or TNT in too many shows to enumerate. But I'll be darned if it just doesn't work here as well for two primary reasons. First, the locales within the Florida glades provides some pretty scenic areas for bodies to be dumped. In fact, the opening segments are usually quite well done and kick off each episode's mystery with a visual flair. But second, and most important, is the star making turn by a very charming Matt Passmore. As a Chicago cop relocated to a small local police force, Passmore hits all the right notes. With humor and intelligence, he cracks the cases as he cracks wise--but his verbal banter is genuinely amusing and not overly precious.

As with most procedurals, oftentimes the case solutions are fairly obvious or secondary to the journey of arriving at the finale. Most of the drama and comedy comes from Passmore interacting with the suspects as well as his team. He enjoys an easy chemistry with Carlos Gomez as his primary confidante and the two play off each other well. Of course, the show provides a requisite love interest. Kiele Sanchez plays a local med student raising a son alone while the boy's father is locked up. Sanchez has a genuine appeal and starts off the season as a terrific romantic foil. Passmore plays the surrogate father, naturally, and this element can be overplayed at times--but, for the most part, it works. The initial banter between Sanchez and Passmore has real heat and fire.

As of right now, four out of the six reviews were written before the series came out on DVD. Some of them did a great job synopsizing the series, so I'll skip that step. One quick note though: I don't recall too much swearing as the show aired, but it is evident on the DVD (it didn't bother me at all, but I know some people are sensitive about language).

It's refreshing to watch a Florida show that does not take place in Miami. There is a very brief (8 minutes) special feature devoted to filming on location. In it, something very important was brought up: no matter how hot it is in conjunction with high humidity, TV characters don't sweat.

Another interesting special feature is on the casting. All of the major characters and the show people have a say in how/why they were cast, and what they think about the characters. This short feature makes it pretty clear that the cast meshes very well off screen, which explains why the show is so much fun to watch. This was about 15 minutes long.

Usually, deleted scenes on TV shows aren't really worth watching because they are really short and don't stand alone, so don't make much sense. This is so with some of the deleted scenes here, but others are very interesting. It's pretty easy to see why they were cut, but they give a glimpse into some of the ideas about how the show might have progressed - especially the deleted scenes from the pilot episode.

The only other special features are commentaries on the Pilot and second to last episodes. There is also a gag real which, refreshingly, is not taken up with countless mess ups followed by giggles.

It would have been nice if the special features were more extensive, but all in all, I'm really glad I bought the DVD. I hope there will be many more seasons to buy - hopefully with expanded special features. :-)

Jim Longworth (Matt Passmore), a hot, smart, new cop in central Florida. Is the headless body murder or just hungry gators? Longworth is a golfer with normal ability. He's much better with women and crime investigation.

This new A&E crime, homicide, cop drama is American fresh, laced with comedy and a bit of romance. Worth seeing. It's reminiscent of Britain's TV series "Midsomer Murders" also filled with murder, humor, and love; but the Florida location is different, not countryside England, and the characters are at least a generation younger. Will "The Glades" experience the longevity of "Midsomer Murders", lasting years and still going strong? Well time will tell, but it has a very good start. Try a set of "Midsomer Murders". Murders as delicious as chocolate.

Meet the rest of the cast too. Callie Cargill (Kiele Sqanchez); Carlos Sanchez (Carlos Gomez); Callie's son Jeff (Uriah Shelton); and Daniel Green (Jordan Wall). Then Randy Cromwell (Alexis Martinez), a new detective, & Colleen Manus (Michelle Hurd).

It's got all the trimmings of a popular cop series; the dead bodies, the love interest with requisite roadblocks, the clever repartee between partners, and lots of T&A. But, Jim Longworth, the displaced Chicago detective, has that cavalier rapid fire style, replete with loaded questions, innuendo, and a little purposeful distance that serves to confuse the suspects into thinking that he's not really all that interested, that he'd rather be golfing. That, of course, makes them give up information that they might not have intended to. He's reminds me of a combination of "Monk" and "Columbo" on speed.

It is amazing to me, though, that someone; producers, some obscure rating board, or the network, finds it perfectly acceptable to show a graphic series of mutilated bodies and body parts, week after week, but any kind of nudity is strictly forbidden. We are exposed to beaten and strangled women, head shot exit wounds, and digested human remains from a slaughtered wild boar's gut, but not even one nipple ever makes it past the censors. Maybe that's more of a comment on society than on the show. Whatever.

At any rate, the show is "formula," with its handsome wise cracking super cop that solves every case, the hard working girlfriend with the felony convict husband, the archetypical 12 year old kid that thinks everything mom says is "lame," but shooting guns and seeing a dead body is "cool." Oh, and the obligatory über-geek intern who can magically fly past computer passwords, initiate instant phone traces, and identify the mating habits of any insect, reptile, or mammal the cops uncover in an investigation.

Lastly, there is an almost criminal overuse of one particular plot device.
