i watched the first two episodes out and it really surprised me. its one of the best shows i've seen in a while, especially since i'm into law enforcement and i live near los angeles. anybody else seen it?

I caught the first two eps a couple days ago, and only after two episodes, I think it might be the best cop show on network television. "The Wire" is still the GOAT, but this show I have high hopes for.

You can watch the first two episodes there (if you're in the U.S.).

i love it, i love that is has zero music. everything in that show feels like something bad is going to happen.

one of the few shows that im actually on the edge of my seat. i like how they dont change the cussing to something else and just bleep it, way more real.

I see faith in your eyes
never you hear the discouraging lies
broken is the promise, betrayal
the healing hand held back by deepened nail
follow the god that failed

EXACTLY and the ending doesn't always end good, like in other shows.

i also like how they shoot the camera. its not stationed in one position so it contributes to the intensity of the situation.
