    The series, written by Price and produced by Robert DeNiro, has NYC cred, and it, like its characters, grows with each episode.

    It is, in its artfulness and drama, a smashing pilot and--from the evidence of the next episodes--a reliable indicator of the quality to come.

    It's a well-done, somewhat sleepy ensemble drama about newbies on patrol. [7 May 2012, p.46]

    It boasts at least a whiff of the grittiness to be found in creator/writer Richard Price's 1992 novel about drug dealer, Clockers. [13 Apr 2012, p.79]

    Has big shoes to fill and given other police shows out there, its acting is great! More than credible it lacks the "I wanna know whats goingHas big shoes to fill and given other police shows out there, its acting is great! More than credible it lacks the "I wanna know whats going to happen to that guy/girl".
