Contains Some Truly Ridiculous and Painful Dialogue
31 October 2018 | by aphillips-43057See all my reviews

This show isn't really a detective show with most of the screen time devoted to the family problems of detective Jack Mowbray and the politics within the police department. Not much time left for actual detective work. A lot of the dialogue is implausible and, particularly in the case of Jack's wife's reaction to the murder case and Jack's involvement in it, completely and painfully ridiculous. IMDB has this show with a 7.3 rating. It doesn't deserve anywhere near that high. My wife and I give it a 5.0. We skipped Season 2.
