Kyra Sedgwick as Brenda makes the most of her quirky role so full of contradictions. Sharp tongue, sweet tooth. Firm sense of direction at work, less so away from it - especially when driving. At times genuinely scatterbrained but at others this a ploy to reel in the suspects.
13 episodes. 13 intriguing cases. Those interrogations usually the highlight (NOT needing the accompanying music that so distracts). Not everything works (the comedy sometimes forced and the heroine occasionally irritating), but there is much to please. Particularly enjoyed was the season's finale. Influential enemies have ganged up to engineer Brenda's departure. Grudgingly they will settle for a grovelling apology. What happens next? Something to treasure.
Don't expect shoot outs galore: there are action sequences throughout the various series, but this show is all about the interaction between the characters. It's also one of the funniest police shows on television as the characters grow and bounce off each other. This is a class act.
I was surpised that a couple of reviewers criticise the leading actress, as she is great given what she is given to work with (then again, lots of folks mistake an actor/actress with their character)!
Overall, relatively predictable for me, but with some nice comic touches :-)
