This is exactly what one would expect from Ving Rhames and Chaz Palminteri, a gritty, realistic, and heartfelt cop show.
Unlike the catch phrase spewing original, this remake was all about character development. Instead of a cop hell bent on making an impression, Ving Rhames gave us a cop bent on doing the right thing and also gave us an insight on why he was so driven. The supporting cast was wonderful, the writing was top notch, and the acting was just what you would expect from Rhames and Palminteri; top notch. Why USA cancelled this show and kept things like Monk is baffling to the mind.
