Right,all we need is a new cop show set in The Big Apple.But Glenn Garvin has done his homework. He feels this show has some promise and is a not a cookie cutter replica of the "zombie armies of CSI and Law & Order clones that have lately dominated the genre".
We will soon find out beginning this Friday. NYC 22 on CBS.
Here is Garvin's review.
Any thoughts of the majesty of the law are quickly banged out of the rookie cops’ heads. “Don’t get hurt,” their training officer warns them in their first daily briefing. “Don’t hurt anyone. Keep your mouth shut and your eyes open. In essence, just stand there.” However authentic, that doesn’t sound like the basis for an interesting television show, does it?
But NYC 22 will surprise you, at least a little bit. If CBS’ new cop drama doesn’t quite climb the Hill Street Blues heights it aspires to, it’s still a lot more engaging than the zombie armies of CSI and Law & Order clones that have lately dominated the genre. And given some time (admittedly, an unlikely prospect in today’s instant-gratification world of broadcast TV), NYC 22 could develop into a dandy show.
