TV show description:
This crime drama has a unique twist in that it doesn’t focus on who committed a crime, but why the crime was committed in the first place. As the mystery unfolds, winding between revealing flashbacks and present time, viewers navigate the twisted and complicated maze of each murder, solving the puzzle alongside the detectives, piecing together more of the mysterious connections that drove the killer to commit murder.

When a murder is committed, Detectives Angie Flynn (Kristin Lehman) and Oscar Vega (Louis Ferreira) are on the case, looking for clues that will lead them to the killer.

Sexy and feisty, Angie is a thirty-something single mom from the wrong side of the tracks who proves that appearances can be deceiving. Oscar is intelligent, thoughtful, methodical and confident. He comes from a wealthy family and turned his back on an expensive Harvard Divinity School education to join the police force (a change of heart from his initial choice of joining the priesthood).

Others on the homicide team are: Doctor Betty Rogers (Lauren Holly), a medical examiner with a quirky sense of humor that belies the grimness of her daily job. Staff Sergeant Boyd Bloom (Roger Cross), the Squad Room Supervisor who was sidelined from the streets a few years earlier by a bullet. Detective Brian Lucas (Brendan Penny), a young eager beaver detective and newlywed who’s eager to learn and is fascinated about the often grisly procedures.

Angie doesn’t suffer fools or authority figures lightly. At home, Angie only wants the best for her teenage son, Manny (Cameron Bright), who is one of the few things in life that she feels she did right. But as far as Manny’s concerned, being the son of a cop is not the easiest gig in the world.

DO NOT CANCEL THIS SHOW! Everytime I like a TV program, it gets canceled. This show is more true to life than Law and Order et al, they they are showing those rerun upon rerun.

Fantastic show with a unique plot evolution. Beginning each show knowing the victim and killer, leaves the viewer to watch intently for foreshadowing, or any clue, in an attempt to outguess the plot twists to reveal the “why” (the “Motive”) before it is revealed on the show. This unique presentation sets this show apart from, yet not above, all other dramas of this genre. I can only hope the “powers-at-be” will keep something new and different, with a great cast, and not leave us with just the old and same, repeated daily in various forms, with famous titles and also great cast members. Keep this show!
