5.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievably only one season to be made.
This is a superb, gritty police show which is every bit as excellent as the magnificent American cop shows of the last 30 years including the brilliant NYPD Blue. The acting is superlative, the writing first class and the story lines gripping. I am appalled to be honest that it was not recommissioned for a second series. Viewers can be so fickle. Perhaps if it had dragons...

3.0 out of 5 stars Big budget production, low budget acting.
It was very hard to become immersed, because the acting was lacking emotion. I felt like i was watching a low budget cast on their first audition. And they chose the wrong person to play 'Fitch'. He didn't fit that role at all. Very unconvincing.

This show could have been great if the actors had put more effort into it.

The acting is superlative, the writing first class and the story lines gripping. I am appalled to be honest that it was not recommissioned for a second series. Viewers can be so fickle. Perhaps if it had dragons and swords and sandals like the (admittedly incomparable) Game of Thrones it would have survived.

So sad this did not get a second season, I love to watch shows that maybe others aren't watching. I saw this on Lovefilm and was immediately hooked, the cast are great and the two running stories on each episode is almost like watching the First 48. If you enjoy shows that or The Wire I would give this a watch.

I had never heard of this, but I've been searching for series from different US cities (NY and LA are good, but there are too many). I enjoyed this and compared to some other longer series, I'm surprised there wasn't at least a second series. Pity.

This was a gift for a friend so I can't comment on it. She said she like it and hoped she could get the 2nd series.
