    I noticed season 2 out at CD-Wow but with no details, so went along to The Laser's Edge but there is no synopsis against either series.
    Tried a search here but nothing??

    What is it, and if it's managed a second season release, is it any good?

    Thanks,

    A very violent cop show that was broadcast on the FX network. From the reviews the first season got, it was very good.

    It's very, very good. Chiklis is NOTHING like the cop he played in "The Commish."

    The season 1 set is one of my favorite sets that came out in 2003. There are some awesome commentary tracks on it.

    It's an OK show, a bit Overrated me thinks.
    But I think I'm burning out on cop shows.....[​IMG]

    It probably bears emphasis that it's a really good show because of the storyline (which often goes unexpected places) and not the violence.

    Thanks Michael, those 3 links were exactly what I was looking for - sounds a great series.
    I thought I was searching across all forums but obviously just the one I was posting in :b :b

    Thanks,

    Really is a great show. I saw only a few episodes on cable and saw the rest on DVD. I think this one of the few shows out there worth being a blind buy for those unfamiliar with the show.
