    I sure am. It sounds pretty interesting. And being right after Prison Break, that'll give it a good number of viewers.

    From the Preview i saw on the FOX website, it looks alot like Lincoln Heights on ABC Family.

    I like that show, perhaps I will like this one.

    It's just that i have been burned by FOX on many new series that were cancelled before a second season, so I'm not sure i am gonna try it again.

    I'll give it a try. I like Dark Cop shows like The Shield and this has a similar tone judging by that preview.

    I'll give it a try. Most of the shows I watch don't start until at least January, so I'll need something to tide me over through the fall. Sad to say, there don't seem to be many other shows worth checking out.

    Watching new shows on FOX is always risky, but the juicy post-Prison Break timeslot will help.

    I'm happy that Anthony Anderson is stepping away from comedy. He deserved an Emmy for The Shield Season Four.

    I will be watching this show. This one of the few shows I am excited about. I like Anthony. He is not only funny, but he is a great comedian.

    I agree with you about there not being many shows worth watching. I do hope the networks get better or I will just have to rely on DVDs of the old TV shows I like.

    Compared to FOX's other new drama New Amsterdam, this looks like a masterpiece. If this show is not a serial drama, which I don't think it is, I think the chances of survival are good.

    I also really like the Dark and Gritty look of the show.

    The only thing that seemed weird was the music used in the promos, it seems really out of place.

    I think that I will try this show. There don't seem to be that many good new shows this fall, but this seems to be the best.

    I'll give this show a chance. I love Anthony Anderson and it will be a pleasure to see him in a tv show in a serious role. By the way I watched Transformers last night and Anthony Andersen is freakin' hilarious in it

    I can imagine how this series will quickly become political in regards to "The Government" not doing enough to rebuild the city. How will the series itself do? Since its not a serial drama it could survive. I give it a 50-50 chance. As some have mentioned it looks alot like Lincoln Heights.

    Will I watch it? Probably not much beyond the Pilot episode but that could change if the pilot is good. It has to be better than all those reality TV shows out there.

    As for New Orleans itself, attempting to rebuild the city as it was by stuffing so many people in housing below sea level would be monumentally stupid. Once crack in the levee system and its Katrina all over again. Of course building a city on river silt that is slowly sinking was stupid to begin with - another winning idea from the French... Better to protect the above sea level areas (tourist and port facilities) and slowly fill in the below sea level areas an make then at least 20 feet above sea level then turn it into wetlands and forests to protect the other areas. Of course all that isnt going to keep it from eventually being wiped out due the nature of the soil and which the city is built; but it would put off the day of reckoning for awhile and it would cost big money to do it. New Orleans is basically a death trap. Id never live there.
