Dark Blue is a new “dark” cop drama centering on a squad of undercover cops under the command of Lt Shaw, played by Dylan McDermott. I found the first episode pretty ordinary. Ordinary enough that I didn’t want to see the other episodes, especially if you compare it to something like The Closer.
Just like Hawthorne, even though these shows have strong lead characters, there is something missing. The main problem for Hawthorne is that there is a better show with Edie Falco called Nurse Jackie on Showtime.
I didn’t really warm up to any of the characters in Dark Blue. Then again, I didn’t really watch that many episodes, just one was enough. Hawthorne had the same problem. If the first episode is weak, I usually tend to avoid the rest of the series. I’ve got enough series to follow without wasting time on average shows like this one.
Warning: spoilers ahead.
