Advertisements While not nearly as good as the original BBC series, this one has started to grow on me and seems to be finding its stride. This episode had a lot of really good humor. Bello is settling into the character, her sarcastic quips were also quite funny throughout, as well as some of her reactions to her male co-workers. (Their sexism was played for laughs in this ep and it really worked.) One of the great things about the original was that the guest stars in each ep - the victims and perpetrators - were just as well-acted as the principles. Unfortunately that hasn't been the case with this version, the two actors playing the suspects were mediocre, at best, which really detracts from the overall story, imo. Another problem is that the original, unless I'm mistaken, lasted 90 minutes for some episodes, while others were several one-hour eps covering one case. This gave them time to develop the story and characters. This version is 42 minutes without commercials, considerably shorter, so they don't have nearly the same luxury, and it feels a bit condensed. But, for a U.S. cop show, which I generally don't much care for ("Justified" being the rare exception) this one has real potential. Assuming they don't cancel the darn thing before it has a chance to find an audience.
