Storyline

This dark and moody cop show focused on Rose "Phil" Phillips, the only female homicide detective in an otherwise all-male precinct in Portland, Oregon. Not only did Phil have to fight crimes, she also had to deal with the sexist attitudes of many of her fellow detectives, most notably Missing Persons Det. Barbini. Her confidante on the force was Vitelli, an internal affairs investigator with whom she had an on-again off-again romantic involvement. Having lost her original partner and mentor, Frank Fusco in the pilot episode, Phil initially worked alone, later teaming up with Beck and Papadakis. Written by Annomous

This film was too much for the "Survivor"-crazed-americans
16 January 2001 | by villoutajmSee all my reviews

I saw this in Cinemax Latin America. It wasn't billed as a TV Series, it was billed as a movie. I guess it was the pilot, and it was superb.

I usually watch american tv series, and this has been one of the best tv episodes i've ever seen. The lead actress is simply greeat. I wonder why she is not a celebrity in Latin America. That woman knows how to act. BEsides, this is (was) a new perspective on detective shows. It was extremely well written, extremely well directed and it was an intelligent show. Maybe too intelligent for U.S.A (Survivor, Temptation ISLand, BAywatch, Friends, etc)....and it was AS GOOD as PRime Suspect....It kept me biting my nails the whole time... That script should've been a movie. (what runned opossite this serie in american Prime Time Television? why they cancel all good shows like Murder One)
