I think this is one of the best New TV shows in 2011. I heard NBC has pulled the plug and this first season will be the last. Watch it while you can. The characters are real life and not hokey, the script is original and fresh, and NBC is full of a bunch of idiots.

One of the best and most realistic female cop shows on TV. An show where the police woman actually does not wear make-up, keeps her hair pulled back and wears sensible clothing to a crime scene. If the network pulled this... it is obviously because they can't risk funding a series that doesn't promote a barbie doll or a handful of Ken's as backup.

After NYPD Blue, and The Shield, and just too many good cops and crooks shows to list, I just didn't figure a new one would be any good. But I was watching the ending of Season Seven of 'The Shield' and saw this one was coming on tonite, and figured I'd give it a shot.

I had seen Helen Mirren in the British version, loved it, and had read some other reviews today, that said the feminist hassles that *that* show's hero faces just didn't fly anymore, and I agree...but they didn't really push the feminist angle that much: more just the new cop on the block trying to take an older well-loved cop's place, and that is believable.

A lot of Prime Suspect *was* somewhat predictable, hell, it's an NYC cop series, what did I expect...but the show itself, and the plot, quickly caught me up, and some great NYC movie shooting scenes , as we all know, The City becomes a huge part of the show, if it's any good, and this one used New York's streets to great advantage.

Maria Bello was a serious tough cop, and by the time of the funeral in the early part of the show, she and her partner seemed to be taking each other's measure in a more favorable way. I'll have to see a few more shows, but if you do like NY police series, hardboiled cops, and yeah, Maria Bello, you'll probably like this one. Way better than anything else of it's ilk now showing. Yeah, I'm burntout, but I"m going to give this one a try, as it does seem well made. I'm waiting to see some other shows first, and see how some of the others liked it.

Being a big fan of the original series with Helen Mirren, I didn't expect to like the American version, but this show is great! I can't understand why it wasn't picked up for a second season. The characters are complex and interesting, the plots are captivating, and the cast does a great job. It's sad there aren't more episodes.

So "Prime Suspect" and "Revenge" have these two really great women in the lead roles and both episodic shows are on the chopping block........regardless of the fact that both are bursting with SMART writing, great directing, and smash-up acting. The male producers with their male gazes have a wickedly short attention span for capturing audiences when it comes to women in lead roles. For example something like 'ALPHAS', though worth giving a second season, gets that second chance, testosterone and all. And please, don't think I'm a feminist; I'm a female realist who knows talent and good story telling when she sees it. NBC, get some perspective, you're falling behind the times, this show is on the cutting edge....... it shouldn't be on the chopping block. Viewers, check it out, see what I mean.

This is a great cop show. I am so sick of these so call "reality" shows. We finally get a smart, entertaining cop show with a strong female lead and NBC wants to pull it. I understand that it's up against "The Mentalist" --- so move it to another time slot--give it a chance to get an audience. At lease finish out the season. Good thing I bought all the episodes from amazon.

This was one of the very best crime dramas we've ever watched, and we did watch from beginning to end. It was only on for one season, just 13 episodes, unfortunately. Prime Suspect with Maria Bello had everything a great detective series should have: outstanding acting with memorable characters who actually developed as time progressed--flawed but all with redeeming qualities and the ability to grow and mature with each episode. The lead actress, Maria Bello, was the perfect person to cast in that role, as were all the supporting actors. Each one was somehow able to `be' the character they portrayed with such finesse and without going overboard. There wasn't a lemon among `em. It made us happy to know that at least once each week, we would be able to enjoy an entertaining, thoughtfully put together drama which wasn't the usual drivel which the networks try to force-feed us. We looked forward to the next episode to see how the characters were dealing with the every day routine of being themselves. The writing was excellent, with dialogue that captured your attention but wasn't melodramatic. I want to especially compliment the writers who did a fantastic job of combining humor with the drama--an element that is so lacking in most of the other dramas on t.v. these days. It gives a healthy balance to the stories and rewards the viewers with some comic relief, which is essential when telling a dramatic story. Clearly, the directing was also excellent. He/she wove all the performances of these very strong, gifted actors into one well thought out and beautifully choreographed experience. I loved how the characters on Prime Suspect interacted, how they didn't start off as 'perfect' co-workers; some were even rude and insulting.Read more ›
