I needed a show to watch after Breaking Bad and the easiest thing to do is simply not change the channel, and that's how I discovered AMC's newest drama, Low Winter Sun. The show is an adaptation of the novel, Low Winter Sun by Simon Donald and if it sounds familiar to you, that because it has already been turned into a movie, back in 2006. While the show has a great time slot and a star who is already familiar with the role he's playing, the ratings for the show have been low and it's because the show has a lot of bark, but it really doesn't have any bite.

Set in the bankrupt city of Detroit, Low Winter Sun, tells the story of two police detectives, who murdered a third. The dead man, Det. McCann was dirty and was putting the whole department at risk and they did what they had to do. The murder of a cop in Detroit is big news and the Mayor wants it solved by the two best homicide detectives they have, who also happen to be the killers themselves. The men are being watched by internal affairs and the mayor, so they have to make it look like they are really trying to solve the case, but a third party keeps getting in the way. This party who unintentionally keeps popping up, is the mob affiliated group that had McCann on their payroll. Their activities threaten the investigation which could ultimately lead back to the two detectives.

The story makes for a good movie, but if this show is somehow renewed, which direction does it go it? Much like the Killing, this show is centered on one murder, but here the two main characters are the killers. Either they get caught and the series has to start a new in season two or the same story will just keep repeating itself until nobody cares anymore.

The lead in the show is Mark Strong, who also played the lead in the 2006 film.

As much a I love Mark Strong, this series is just not one I could connect to. I tried. Several episodes under the belt and the only thought that came to mind was, "Good chance I could find something better to spend money on..." Degenerate cops going after degenerates is not new territory in TV, but I just wanted to see them all go away. A better title might have been, "No Winter Sun". I gave it a '2' for a couple of good actors who chose a bad project, IMO.

I really liked this show, but I think it's been cancelled. Lennie James is super, Mark Strong is very good, and the show has a Shakespearean quality about it, peoples lives being ruined by their fatal flaws. Still worth watching even if it isn't renewed.

I think a lot of us were optimistic about a new show from AMC that was going to air after Breaking Bad. A cop show set in Detroit with a good cast seemed like a can't miss. But it did miss, badly. The brilliant detectives were never brilliant and the dialogue felt like a caricature of hard-boiled dialogue. One thing that really bothered me was the near complete absence of humor. Look at how another tough show, Sons of Anarchy, uses humor to give some variety to the tone. LWS was just a long, slow journey to nothing.

The directors of this drama seem to believe that intimacy is achieved by shoving the camera as high up the actors' noses as possible while shooting. The partner of Mark Strong is a dreadful actor, or poorly directed. Would like to see the British version of this series show up on Amazon.,

Give it a chance, it starts out slow.

When I first became aware of the show, I though well, AMC has yet to disappoint me, for example: Breaking Bad, Mad Men, The Walking Dead and The Killing (which is very good, I don't care what anybody says) Though, I must say that, Hell On Wheels (Though a good period piece) was a bit of a disappointment. But I digress, At first, all I could think was, so it's like The Shield, but set in Detroit. No, not really, The Shield was based on the L.A.P.D.'s Rampart Division Scandal(s). Whereas, LWS is (I believe) a work of complete fiction, besides, this show has it's own vibe. Let's face it, we've all heard the rogue cop story (The heroic villain aesthetic) many times over. Where the ranking officials are more concerned with political aspirations and public relations, than acknowledging wrongdoing on the part of their subordinates etc. However; the characters in this story, particularly our protagonist Det. Frank Agnew played by Mark Strong (not Stanley Tucci) are much more complex than that. As is the giant grey area in which they live and work. A once proud industrial mecca, now quagmired in politics, apathy, corruption, budget slashed public services, poverty and uncertainty. That's a story of and unto itself. Not only do the characters pull you into their world, but so does the cinematography. You see the boarded up foreclosures, and the abandoned factories. The city is merely the skeletal remains of what is was decades ago. You'd think there had been a natural disaster. I've only read about the problems confronting Detroit, However through this show, though fictional, I experienced them. I must comment on the acting, the acting alone is reason enough to watch.
