Storyline

It's a cop show with a twist. Lifetime's series explores the personal and professional lives of five very different policewomen in San Francisco. "The Division" features action, suspense, crime and cat-and-mouse chases. It also looks at the ups and downs of romance, family, motherhood and female friendships. It's good, old-fashioned drama about working women with real-life problems. Written by Anonymous

Jinny: Oh come on, we knew that she was doing him before the first husband killed himself.
Magda: We don't know that for sure.
Kaitlyn: Well, he got married right away, Jinny's probably right. And if the stepson blame's his father's suicide on the affair, then he'd have reason to go after the stepfather. There's your motive, Shakespearian, straight out of "Hamlet." Claudius kills his brother, old Hamlet and marries Gertrude, his brother's widow.

awesome show so far!
9 June 2002 | by mapmanmslSee all my reviews

So far, the show is awesome, and hope the show gets even more awesome on season 3. All the actors and actresses on the show are just as awesome, too. Ms. Mckeon, while she may be different this season compared to last season is only because her character is now sober and having to redevelope thyself again. yes there's definitely a different Jinny as we all see her. but she's still an excellent character. Always loved Ms. Mckeon's performance on the sunday 6/2/02 episode where she's going undercover at an illegal cosmetics firm. as well as a few others this season i can't remember the names to. And we'll see in future episodes for season 2 how awesome she does. because according to the episode guide that i came to on an internet site for the division, the title names imply that the episodes will be totally awesome. So far, way to go Ms. Mckeon, Mrs. Vidal, Mr. Hamm. Keep up the good work, and may the very best be with you.
