I find the acting to be above average and the writing be about average. So far the show depresses me a bit since all of the cops seem to be dirty to one degree or another. They explained the lack of policing of victimless crimes as controlling those crimes rather than stopping them. I honestly don't know if the NYPD was really this bad back then but it is depressing if it is true. I certainly hope today's NYPD is at least measurably better. The show is OK, but it seems to me to be just one more of the usual cop show formula. Full Review »

Though the actor does his best, it is immediately obvious that he does not have the correct accent, therefore greatly hindering the authenticity that the producers wanted seeing as Spanish is the major language in the series. The mixing of Colombian actors who have the proper accent with Pablo just makes the difference in the speech more noticeable. I cringe a little every time he speaks. Overall the cast is alright and the acting isn't bad, but the casting director was wrong by choosing a non-native speaker to play arguably, the most important role in the series. Full Review »

The cast played their parts well, The story (mixed of real life events and fiction) is well done. Gonna be hard to see the show carry on for multiple seasons though, They could probably pull 3-4 seasons and that'd be it. Still, It's been good so far and I will re-do my review once I am further into it. Full Review »
  5. Wow, just wow. Season 3 has become the most irritating watch of a tv series for me....and I watch The Strain!! Literally, the characters areWow, just wow. Season 3 has become the most irritating watch of a tv series for me....and I watch The Strain!! Literally, the characters are now all bipolar, switching from this to that JUST to make the story create the drama and continue on. I'm sorry, I like Stephen King and his writing but what they've done on this tv show is just crap. I would have rated this a 1 but out of respect to King and his creations I added 2 points.
