Critic Reviews

  1. Lost in all the plot and character contrivance is any sense of the city--a few gumbo and bourbon references are most certainly not enough.
  2. All the gunplay, pedal-to-the-metal action and cartoon villains cheapen any serious talk of what's going on in the city.
  3. Filmed in New Orleans, the show does have an authentic look, but as a cop drama, it's so hackneyed and ham-handed, it's not even funny.
  4. The show squanders any high-mindedness with ridiculous shoot-'em-up scenes reminiscent of any cop show circa 1979.
  5. 25
    A badly acted, clumsily constructed "Starsky & Hutch"/"Miami Vice" revival that imposes fictional clich├ęs on top of harsh realities.

    Why is it so hard for the media to properly capture New Orleans on film? As a resident, I think I am not alone in saying me and my neighbors Why is it so hard for the media to properly capture New Orleans on film? As a resident, I think I am not alone in saying me and my neighbors are not watching this. We may have all tuned in with high expectations for the Pilot, but that was enough. Horrible cliches, bad writing, emotional angles that are meant to be deep but come off pathetic... The South is a gold mine of odd balls and unique characters and unexpected situations, but this show falls flat on its face when trying to depict it. What a shame, because New Orleans (pre and post Katrina) is still an ideal city for a great show... like Sex and the City did for New York, or The Sopranos did for New Jersey - this city could easily be a major reoccurring character. But Nooooo.... they screwed us in the media once again. Full Review »
