So I am flipping the dial to see what there was to watch. There were previews all over the place about a new cop show. It had two of my favorite hot chicks. J-Lo and Adrianna from the Sopranos. So I thought hey why not give it a shot. I mean I like cop shows. Hopefully it wouldn't be too graphic. The subtext was police corruption.
You see there is this special detective police unit that handles Brooklyn. In fact they use many actual street names and locations that I am intimately familiar with so of course that was interesting to me. It had a multi-racial cast. The premise is that J Lo is turned by the FBI who has got her on tape soliciting a bribe so she has to rat out her crew and wear a wire. And she has to betray her mentor the leader of her squad.
They establish that she is a courrpt cop from the get go because in the first episode she uses a throw down gun to make it look kosher for a bad shoot by the rookie cop that she had with her on his first day. He mistook video game noise for actual gunfire and killed a drug dealer guy on his own couch. Now this guy was a bad guy. A dope peddler and skell to be sure but he didn't have a gun in his hand. The made it obvious that she was a bad actor.
Now another bonus was that Ray Liotta played the leader of the cops. He is always good in a tough guy Mafia/cop role. Sort of like a cut rate Lee Marvin. He has a few pounds and few miles on him so he would be perfect for the role of the corrupt but loyal boss of a bunch of thieving cops. But then this happened.
Out of the blue they have him kissing the guy from Internal Affairs. The next episode they have him getting a blow job from a dude in an alley. Does everything have to be gay? I realize that Ryan Seacrest is the executive producer but enough already.
I have to stick with the "Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp" on Youtube. Enough already with this bullshit.
