When ABC produced a less than an impressive pilot early last year, complete with a different cast (with the exception of O'Mara) they took it apart and started all over again with a new line up of noteworthy talent who stopped the show each week. Michael Imperioli was made for the role of the New York snarky detective Ray Carling. Jonathan Murphy was eye catching as the sweet young Chris Skelton. Gretchen Mol was a tough yet lovely Annie Cartwright, and Harvey Keitel was riveting as Gene Hunt. We won't see another great cast like this on television for a while. Long may they live on DVD.
Can't wait to see how this all ends tonight - on ABC at 10:00pm et/ct.
Later than Night...
Well, that was interesting. Fabulous episode, but what's with the ending? Sounds like they didn't write same conclusion as the original UK version. American Sam wasn't in a coma. He was on a mission to...Mars? 2008 never existed? Oh dear, I was hoping for the coma.
