      I missed the first 15 minutes, but here's my take:

      What I like: interesting storyline formed by mixing and overlapping the point of view of each character. I also like how they include the bizarre sense of humor, like the r***ing the one cop got for his little swim in the LA River (which is a heavily polluted waterway [Eek!] ) as well as his partner nicely telling a woman (whom he's just crashed into) that he's "chasing a very bad man."

      What I don't like: way too much cop cliches. Officer safety tactics learned from the "TJ Hooker" school of cop show screenwriting, particularly the combination foot pursuit/vehicle pursuit scene (yeah right, I'm gonna leave my partner to run after a suspect by himself in a crummy part of LA).

          I watched, and liked it. The end was pretty messed up. And yeah, the show took every Hollywood license with police procedure it could, but it was still entertaining. Better than watching the Man Show or something...

            I agree... I mean... like someone is going to have a vehicle pursuit driving BACKWARDS??? But hey, it was good for entertainment.

            I think I'll tune in next week.
