Watched the pilot for this show and, while it's not perfect, it has a lot going for it. I noticed from the beginning that both its 5.1 audio and PQ were terrific. With the exception of Anastasia Griffith, who has done a lot of US television work, and Franka Potente, of Bourne movies fame, I had never seen anyone in the cast. The show takes a look at law enforcement in 1864 New York City and what it shows us is ugly. We see everything from the exploitation and murder of children to crooked cops on the take who cover up the crimes of rich, well connected citizens. The protagonist is a tough Irish detective, who has been not long back from the Civil War.
On the down side, I have not been particularly impressed by the show's young star, Tom Weston-Jones, who plays the Irish detective, Kevin Corcoran. He may grown on me though, so I plan to stick around, at least for a while. Take a look for yourselves and see what you think.
