Storyline

Being police officers has stripped Max and Donny bare, to the point where they're about as morally ambiguous as the criminals they chase. Max has developed his own methods for dealing with bad guys, having lost interest in conventional police work, while Donny has become slightly unhinged by the job yet remains faithfully optimistic. The partners' paths cross with local drug dealer Carlos, who's caught in a turf war and whom Max uses to infiltrate the neighborhood's criminal underworld.

smart, funny, thoughtful and complex
26 February 2009 | by thisiswonderlandSee all my reviews

I've seen the first episode of this show and it's smart, funny, thoughtful and complex. The characters are rich and surprising. The dialog is terrific. It has an energy and pace unlike anything else on television. Although it's about cops and drug dealers etc it doesn't remind me of anything we've come to expect of this genre. Clearly this is an ensemble drama with a large, very interesting cast of performers. It's not clear from the pilot where the show is going but that's the best kind of television... I get the feeling that it's not the kind of show where things are wrapped up neatly. Hopefully it continues to get more and more complex and rich. Can't wait to see where it goes.
