A Lot Of Funny Little Things, But A Somber Story Overall
6 December 2006 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

This had its funny moments, as almost all the shows had, but overall left a bad taste in my mouth, perhaps because we are forced to see an unpleasant situation with a character we like...and the story isn't over.

Capt. Stottlemeyer (Ted Levine) is having marriage problems. His wife is acting very distance, strange and the captain doesn't know why. It even looks like she's seeing another man, especially after a new cop in the precinct brags about fooling around with her.

Meanwhile, there is a case to be a solved and that involves a homeless man living in a junkyard, a crime boss, two murders, a pet mouse, anger management classes and other assorted interesting things.

Unfortunately, even though that is the bulk of the program, Levine's marriage is really the issue here and it's not a pleasant ending.

Frankly, I wish these crime shows would stick to just that instead of having to including soap opera stuff here and there, but they admittedly add a strong human element to the stories and characters.
