Believable, without the "filth"
on March 24, 2013
I'm amazed that the story lines, and characters can be so true-to-life, current, and relevant without bombarding the audience with scantily-clad actors, and soft porn. Rather than trying push the censorship envelope with shocking language, over-the-top violence, or nudity, this show strives for excellence in character development, dialogue, and interpersonal communication, while, at the same time presenting action-filled, intriguing, "ripped from the headlines" police and city politics stories set in New York City. Well-written, superbly acted, the show comes to life around one family in service to that city. The family is like a character all in itself --and the best part, is that "family" always wins. I, personally, applaud the photography director who HOLDS THE CAMERA STILL. It's one show I don't get motion sick watching as the cameras swing wildly, and bounce around. TV is a visual medium; I enjoy being able to SEE this outstanding show.
