Great Show
26 April 2006 | by Maria-BelknapSee all my reviews

Wonderful early 90s show.

Full of life and with great performances.

It's really too bad that NBC changed its mind about its commitment to Dick Wolf at that time and dumped this show and South Beach into the Summer so they could kill them without really giving them a chance. Both shows were extremely well-made and would have been big hits if they had been given any support by NBC.

Later Law and Order's ratings picked up and dick Wolf became again their knight in shining armor.

It's also too bad for Yancy Butler who ended up doing awful movies and shows like Witchblade, and for David Andrews who is only now seeing a well-deserved career revival.
