Dark Blue 2 Seasons 2009

Season 1
4.1 out of 5 stars (215) IMDb 7.6/10

Dark Blue takes place in the underbelly of Los Angeles, where criminals roam free under the veil of night or hide in the shadows of day. Wandering in and out of this seedy underworld is commonplace for Lieutenant Carter Shaw (Dylan McDermott) and his special undercover task force. This team understands, better than anyone, that to bring down a criminal, one must first get on their level.

I thoroughly enjoyed this show. The characters are interesting, and I never know quite where an episode will go. It's a great dark and gritty crime drama that focuses on getting to know and then manipulating criminals.

This cop show has nothing to offer about real police work or anything that real police officers job is really like. If you like the idea that cops are really all a bunch of rouges that are just like criminals, then you should like this show. If you like shoot-outs with bad guys, you'll love it. But, the writing is weak, the acting worse, and this show should never have made it to television. An example: as anyone knows, female police officers all wear high heel shoes because you can run faster when chasing bad guys down an alley. Yeah, it's that dumb.

Dark Blue: The Complete First SeasonThis is what an action-packed and suspense-laden cop and bad guys show is supposed to be like. The bad guys are so evil that I actually got stressed up during each scene where it seemed that the undercover cop was about to be discovered. I actually got scared that the cop would be badly hurt. The scenes tightly follow each other to give you a feeling of non-stop rollercoaster action. Dylan McDermott used to show compassion in his previous attorney character in the Practice series. Here, he is all driven to put really bad guys out of business. He never gives his own cops any leeway for any compassion or personal issue to interfere with catching the bad guys. Sometimes the undercover cops get close to the people they are building cases against. They become torn as the arrests are about to be carried out. I watched the first season of Dark Blue as it was being shown on cable. I liked it so much that I bought it on DVD's. When the second season is available on DVD's, I'll buy it too.

Season 1 was marvelous! Exceptional characters, damaged and gritty yet you still feel empathy for them. A claustrophobic look into the dark world of deep undercover cops on a special task force that is sanctioned to bring down the worst of the underworld. They are pushed to go the extra mile and then pushed even further. The damage it does to their lives as they become fully immersed in the gangs and organizations that they penetrate, month after month and year after year. Everything becomes lies and betrayal with the singular goal of getting the job done. Some of them begin to question who the real bad guys are, even as their personal lives outside of work deteriorate or fall away entirely.

Season 2 saw writing and casting changes that diluted it into a conventional "cop" show.
That pretty much killed it.
Apparently someone at network thought it was too "edgy" and decided that a vanilla cop show was the way to go.

I really do hope that exec was fired.

Some Episodes are better then others, but some Episodes are really good I enjoyed the season opening and ending I thought really good tv which is why I gave it 5, Sometimes I wish Seasons were shorter so they could drop the weak episodes. but in this case the weak episodes were not unwatchable which is why I gave those a 3, so average out a 4

It does have the cliche drug war view of 'drugs are the worst thing in the world' and 'police have to bend the rules to get results' but not so bad that it distracted from my enjoyment.

OK, my bad. I made an assumption that since the series had been closed-captioned on TV and was a Warner Brothers DVD that it would STILL be close-captioned. Wrong, and if you watched this series you know that it has volume extremes, whispers then gunfire and so forth. SO... it looks pretty on my TV but I have NO clue what they're saying.

If you did not watch any of this series, and if you like realistic "cop - law & order" shows, with good acting and believable plots with no sexual tension between the actors, then this is the series to get. In my opinion it was one of the best shows on and I know it had a following, but still was canceled. I feel the same way about "The Unit". Both were great shows that either did not catch on with enough people or were canceled due to our politically correct society nowadays.

I the idea of dramatizing the lives of deep undercover law enforcement operatives (although not original) was intriguing. This series creates many opportunities to develop instances where the viewer can image this undercover life. However, most of these moment are not develop with enough acuity to make them believable. Dylan McDermott, one of the actor for which I am most familiar, has a role that detaches(don't want to give to much away) him from the other characters. I my opinion his star power is not utilized to any great significance in this role.

The other roles are presented as if these police officers are living their lives in L. A. just like any other citizen. However, the people that they are pursuing have the ability to follow the officers to their homes. I can not image that undercover officers dealing in drugs and money laundering would live such normal lives once they left the office. Consequently, these actors and their roles seem too far removed from the perpetrators and police officers that they are trying imitate.
