I liked it. Very witty and "tongue-in-cheek". I felt it wasn't as "gritty" as similar shows like CSI:MIAMI. Plus the "csi/cop/FBI" guy tactics seem a bit off. But I'm interested to see more.

I enjoyed this one too. The lead actor is well cast in the part and the somewhat loopy plot was fun. The confrontation scene with his partner was a bit uncomfortable, but it showed the darker/edgier side of his personality.

Was the VOD in HD by chance?
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

I didn't notice that it wasn't. But my 5-yr old Toshiba picture tube type HD set seems to do a pretty decent job of up-converting SD.

A&E cancelled the show. Too bad it ended with a serious cliffhanger.

Sorry to see this one go.  It wasn't great TV, but it was certainly very good.

That was one I recorded every week. It is different than most cop shows. Sad to see it go.

Well, that stinks. I had a few left on my DVR. While I liked the show, one thing that always got me was how he would arrest someone for the crime and then let them go just to arrest someone else. And in many cases, he would end up arresting the same person multiple times during the show.
