Some reservations, which I will mention later, notwithstanding, I continue to like this show. Some of the one liners are a lot of fun. For example, the other cops in the squad refer to Annie Norris (Gretchen Mol), the female officer, as no nuts and I laughed out loud when Detective Carling (Michael Imperioli) told her to come with them to tell the widow that her naval officer husband had been murdered so she could do that do do that you do so well. Later, when Sam told the lieutenant that the murder looked like a hate crime, the lieutenant asked, What, as opposed to an I really, really like you crime? Funny stuff! By the way, I like Mol, she is a sound actress with a lot of range.
I was less impressed with how the writers dealt with the dead naval officer's old friend, who they referred to as having been his squad leader. The dead guy had been a surface warfare officer, and no surface warfare officer ever had a squad leader, at least not in the Viet Nam era. Trust me on this.
Despite the writers' sloppiness about military matters, I continue to think that this US version of the BBC original is a worthy successor, which I will continue to watch.
