Any one else watching this? I am really getting to like it, it seems like a cross between Homicide and LOCI. Like Baltimore was as much a character in Homicide so is Detroit in this show, it is very evident that they film there and it makes it so much more interesting than been there done that LA and NYC. It follows three sets of homicide detectives and there is usually two murders per show. The star of the show though and the most interesting detective to watch is Detective Fitch a brilliant but socially awkward man who no one else seems to understand. Sound familiar? He is similar to the Goren character but also very different. He has a new partner who is new to homicide and whenever he needs to criticize him he will call him on the phone to do it, even if they are sitting across from each other or getting coffee together at a restaurant. That is pretty funny. The other detectives don't seem to understand him but the do have a lot of respect for him. The other detectives seem interesting too, the only one I recognize though is the guy who played Capt. Fancy in NYPD Blue.
I'm watching! And, as you may recall, I'm a Detroiter, which makes this show a special treat because, like you, I also find this show a great mix of Homicide and L&O -- two of my all time favorite shows. The writers/producers haven't yet lived up to how awesome the pilot epsidoe was (all that humor!) but it's definitely on my short little watch list
I just saw an aria in this show, pretty similar to Goren on doing a "by the way" closure. (those people that tell important issues after the good bye). Anyway, it was called Cold Stone or something similar and had an annoying camera man. He kept zooming and going back every second or so, I almost got dizzy... He could take a look at season 3 LOCI "unrequited" episode. I love the camera use, the staging and even some of the music in that episode. Anyway, it seems to me that the camera is closer in unrequited than the usual. It is nice, very nice. (and we also get the joyful Goren). I think I will keep seeing LOCI by now.
I already miss Goren and Eames: Non ti dimenticherò...
