  • Really bad.

    4.5
    And it had potential... I won't point out the impossibilities concerning the ICC etc, I watch too many supernatural shows for that.



    But the acting, the lines, the predictability are awful. The cases could be interesting, but it is one of the least captivating shows I've seen. Too bad, because the casting is great, so I guess it has to do with directing. I endured the first four episodes, but it felt like torment.moreless
  • A fresh angle on a police drama

    7.0
    Two episodes in, I like the concept of a criminal drama show without the US backdrop. Fichtner who plays Carl Hickman does a great job portraying a broken character.

    I don't mind the fictional police setting - I'm open to fiction in TV-series.



    I'll probably change my rating during the seasons. For now I'll stick to a 7.
  • The jury is still out

    5.0
    The jury is still out for Crossing lines. On the down side, it is very stereotypical and for a show that happens in Europe, it completely misrepresents the Europe. I mean, a procedural drama in Europe should at least have some degree of resemblance of how police forces work in Europe and what interstate criminal police and justice departments exists. But no, this show invents a completely impossible to exist task force based on an institution (the ICC) that in reality couldn't have one! And the ICC is not even an European "thing", its a affiliated with the UN, a completely different kind of "animal".



    So the show can be watched as one watches an alternate reality. In a parallel universe, it could happen.



    On the up side, if we accept the impossible premises and suspend the disbelief, some episodes are good. Not the pilot nor the second one, but they are improving.moreless
  • Didn't like at first... definitely grew on me, hope it's renewed!

    8.5
    Initially I didn't care for the show and thought it was your typical cookie cutter procedural drama like NCIS or Criminal Minds, or whatever it is people watch on primetime, with a European spin for Americans. However I kept with it after the first few episodes and half way through the third episode I became hooked and I'm glad I stuck with it. I especially enjoyed the seventh episode, what with the NY cop stuck in a Netherlands bank heist... which ties into later episodes. It's definitely grittier than the typical shows and I worry that with the euro focus, the grittiness and the slow hook that it might not be renewed... but I'm glad I watched it.moreless
  • "Not a chance"? "Won't last the season"? Think again!

    9.0
    I agree that the pilot was a bit predictable and that none of the characters gave the best performance of their lives, but this show just kept getting better and better all the way up to the final episode! Donald Sutherland is fantastic, and the rest of the cast really came alive right around episode 7. The last two episodes are award worthy -- yes -- it's that good. This better be coming back!moreless
