Oscar and Golden Globe Award nominee James Caan ("The Godfather", "Misery") stars as Big Ed Deline, the head of the surveillance team for the Montecito Resort & Casino.

    With his protégé, Danny McCoy (Josh Duhamel, "All My Children") an ex-U.S. Marine and Las Vegas native, they deal with card-counting cheaters, costly streaks of random luck and rival casinos stealing their big-money players. If the typical job-related pressures weren't enough, Big Ed recently found Danny in bed with his only daughter, Delinda (Molly Sims, MTV's "House of Style"). Rounding out this cast of high rollers is Danny McCoy's longtime, savvy friend -- and soon to be director of special events -- Mary Connell (Nikki Cox, "Nikki"), the all-knowing valet Mike Cannon (James Lesure, "For Your Love"), sleek pit boss Nessa Holt a.k.a. "The Ice Queen" (Marsha Thomason, "Black Knight") and elusive former competitor Samantha "Sam" Jane (Vanessa Marcil, "Beverly Hills, 90210").

    A smart, stylish, sexy romp full of sizzling patter and clever chatter. Behind the glitz and glamour of Sin City are solid performances by Caan and his immediately likable co-stars. [22 Sept 2003, p.D7]

    Sometimes it takes a little while for a show to hit its stride, and watching Las Vegas for the first half of its first season was a crapshoot. ... So the series pumped up the guest-star quotient. That's when the fun began, around the turn of this year, when people as diverse as Paris Hilton, Sean Astin, Dennis Hopper, and Sugar Ray's Mark McGrath began showing up.

    Of the 36 new network shows premiering this fall, Las Vegas is among the more promising. [22 Sept 2003, p.B7]

    Las Vegas is definitely watchable; the pace is so fast that it's as if the filmmakers are fast- forwarding so you don't have to. But the plot is so tangled it's almost incomprehensible, the grace notes are laminated beneath visual slickness - and throughout, it's hard to shake the feeling that you've seen it before and don't need to see it again. [22 Sept 2003, p.35]

    Something part good and part incredibly, unforgivably smarmy.

    If Caan grabs more screen time and the writers build on the hints of sexual chemistry between Danny and Nessa, I might place a small bet on this superslick series-provided Danny learns the virtue of occasional silence.

    It's all about superficial glitz: Pretty to look at, but utterly devoid of real dramatic meat on its bones. In the pilot, Duhamel's character is sleeping with Big Ed's flirty daughter, and Big Ed doesn't like it. I could care less. [22 Sept 2003, p.1C]
