This was a great start to the show. It wasn't terribly original but who cares? It was well done. I like all the characters in the series, especially Jack Hale. I also like his background and the fact that there seems to be more to him, other than his girlfriends/partners death. I love the relationship between him and his boss. It's not the typical hate relationship that many cops have with their bosses. They genuinely seem to get on which makes a change.
I loved the starting case. It was a good one to show what the series is going to be all about. It was different and although it wasn't all original it had some interesting twists. All in all a great episode to start off the series.
