    I liked the second episode much more than the first. It doesn't seem like it will be much more than a typical crime drama, but last night made me want to continue watching it. Much better than the first episode...

    Yep -- looks like this will be good stuff. The Lt. Daniels character is becoming very interesting as he's pulled in several directions at once.
    As a "Homicide: Life on the Streets" fanatic, this show has a whole additional layer for me, devoted to spotting the HLOTS connections:
    - Peter Gerety (Gharty on HLOTS) playing the judge
    - Erik Todd Dellums (Luther Mahoney on HLOTS) playing the coroner [​IMG]
    - The "board" in the Homicide squad room
    - People talking about "red balls" and "stone cold whodunnits"
    Ah, if only they were driving around in little white Cavaliers instead of Crown Vics, it would be just like the good old days.

    I saw a little preview on HBO and it seemed that it had its priorities out of whack
    "All cops are not good guys, and all dealers are not bad!"
    What kinda crap is that? I know there are bad cops but if any show wants me to feel bad for dealers they gotta be kidding me!
    Ill watch Cisco Pike for a drug dealing hero.
