Dark Blue - Save It or Sink It?

From E!Online:


It has Jerry Bruckheimer at the helm and Dylan McDermott as its leading man. Two points there. It's yet another dark cop show. Minus half a point there. (Really? Do we need another cop show...even if it's filling a summer void? Maybe. Maybe not.) One more point for the addition of Nicki Aycox of Supernatural, which is a favorite of Team WWK here.



So what does that add up to for Dark Blue, TNT's new drama about a team of deep undercover police officers? You tell us. As we do with all notable new shows, it's time for you to vote on whether Dark Blue should stay or go.


So, Reelers, Save It or Sink It?

Please save it!! I love the show,started looking for the new season dates shortly after the end of the second season. The characters in the series have a great chemistry together and I just started figuring out the dynamics of each team member (what makes them tick) Please give it another shot, take what people have suggested the show needs and kick it up a notch. I liked the storylines and was satisfied with where the show was going. Besides the fact the cliffhanger at the end of season 2 was great and fans need to see an ending (Carter was showing feelings and Dean had progressed to a great admirable member of the team)It is sad to see the great cop shows go to be replaced by crappy hospital dramas(Hawthorne)and 2nd rate cop shows like Southland that seem to make up stuff as they go along trying to imitate the original law and order. Come on Jerry Bruckheimer Do one more season of Kicked up Dark Blue.. with a little change of scenery and some brutal organized crime villains. I do agree that it would be difficult for even an underground rogue team to arrest so many heavy hitters and not have someone recognize them as cops when they are undercover. Fix it(a few things) and make it better than ever. I had everyone I knew watching the show. and Please Please don't do the same thing to Leverage and The Closer. Don't sacrifice the viewers great cop and bad/good guy shows in the future for the new upcoming trends of families with superpowers and heroes that fly around saving cities (The Cape). I saw a few comments on "The Shield", now that was a great, edgy dirty cop show for the first 3 seasons then it became stupid because everyone wanted Vic Mackey to go clean or pay for his bad deeds. Some of us like the nitty gritty dirty or underground rogue cop shows because they are interesting. When you mess up the "vision" of the character and do not improve it by making the characters a little dirtier or they mentally evolve (like Carter, Dean, Ty, and Jamie were doing at the end of season 2) I have watched all of season 1 of Dark Blue and found the storylines of how the members of the team were in the beginning and what they had become (organized and had each others backs)like a undercover team should be (still leaving a few secrets between the characters) to be a step in the right direction (they each still had a few dark moments which could have been a little more edgy). Please do another season and finish the story that was going on. Then decide if you must to end it if the ratings do not pick up (I believe more viewers will become fans LIKE ME.. ) I watch Dark Blue over and over because it is a great show.

That it's a cop show, is true you can never have too many cop shows. But this show itself? hmmm I don't know is not off the hook show is just an OK show. I expected more from Jerry Bruckheimer.... so to me if it goes I wouldn't be too sad about it.

never ask 'do we need another cop show'. I am hooked on cop shows. And I certainly like this one...

The show has just enough mystery and intensity to make it interesting. But in some ways it's sort of a non-scifi version of the now canceled "new Knight Rider" series. Whether or not the show has a future is up to the masses, as for me...it's interesting enough.

I like this show because it's different than the others. It's about deep undercover work. To my knowledge, there are no other cop shows about this. The great thing about this subject (deep undercover), is the thin line between undercover agent, and criminal (for lack of better term; sorry it's kinda late), as well as the psychological toll it takes on the agents. You can see the struggles of each character during each passing episode, and that, along with the new/unique vibe (at least to me), is what I think makes this cop show stand out among others.

I.m a cop. You can never have too many cop shows. The reason.....wait for it.......the crimes keep getting more interesting and the cops investigating keep coming up with more interesting ways to catch the very interesting criminals. There is so much material to use.

Hmmm...well The Shield has concluded its run now but that was supposedly an amazing cop show. Other older ones: The Wire and NYPD Blue. There's also Southland which just started this spring, all of the Law and Orders, the now canceled The Unusuals, and I am sure I am forgetting a bunch!
