    Other than having an African-American woman as the protagonist, though, this feels like any number of similar movies and series, where cops must decide how far they’ll go (do cocaine? Shoot a guy the boss has tied up?) to protect their cover and get the job done. More fundamentally, the show’s naughty bits feel particularly gratuitous.

    Rogue starts to become a little more intriguing [by the second episode], but the show only gets to that point after the clichéd set-up and almost two hours spent with a self-destructive lead character.

    Rogue has all the attributes of pay cable--rough language, extreme violence and no-kidding graphic sexuality and nudity--but little of its depth and nuance.

    None of this really clicks.

    Frequently, the mixed signals cross and Rogue seems unhinged. Stick with it, though, and you'll be rewarded with some nice moments that justify an unwieldy script.

I am however 3 episode away from the season finale so I look forward to see how I end up feeling at the end. By the way, Thandie is hardcore in this show. No nice nice no bubble gum personality AT ALL which is one of the reason why I am intrigued with her performance. She is tough cop when she needs to be and she really brings it. The nudity/sex is really as upfront as you can get and it certainly supersedes ANY premium cable channels like Showtime or HBO. It makes them tame looking in comparison. Full Review »

Yes it's sometimes a little explicit, even when it's not always sexy, but isn't that what real life is? I'm not sure where it will go from here, it's refreshingly unpredictable, but I know I want to find out. I guess that's what the critics would call "compelling" Full Review »
