Jack is a by-the-book detective whose habit of undermining himself has resulted in a dead-end position with the Police Dept. His partner Dan, a drunken, lecherous veteran hangs onto his job only because of one heroic act years ago.
In a scene in the first episode, Agent Chamberlain and Detective Agnew are talking to some gang members on a street corner. The street sign reads "E. Emmett St.", which actually exists in Battle Creek, Michigan, where the show is set. The tall building in the background however, is not in Battle Creek. See more »
While federal agencies have resident agents in local police departments, the agents perform the tasks of the agencies- such as Secret Service for counterfeiting cases. The FBI does not investigate homicides unless they are of a significant nature, such as a serial killer or murder for hire. See more »
Though all the initial episodes were fine, they were not special by any means. With each episode, as we get to know the characters, the show seems to be growing on me. The friction between the two main characters has been played out well and with each episode dealing with past secrets or personal lives, the show gets interesting and promises to be special. The supporting characters have not yet been fully involved and some of them seem promising enough. The performances of most of the cast is fine. But, Dean Winters and Josh Duhamel have been very good along with the girl who plays Holly. I like the way the show does not limit itself to being only a comedy or drama.
