When I first saw ads on ABC for this show, I was interested in watching but never got to check it out. So when I saw that it was available this week for review, I decided to take the opportunity and give it a shot.
What I found was that this show, unlike some dramas I’ve seen, doesn’t just concentrate on one case at a time. For me, this kept things moving pretty well, especially considering that Detroit 187 doesn’t have a lot of fancy bells and whistles that other procedurals do. I particularly enjoyed the fact that when giving the team of detectives a breakdown of how the young woman died, a dry erase board and some markers were used. No fancy special effects showing internal organs exploding with blood, just a good old-fashioned line drawing did the trick just as well. Not that I don’t like the other shows for doing all that stuff, it was just nice to see it another way.
In one case, a woman is killed and her baby was taken from her womb. The child was delivered before term but still possibly alive. The team on the case isn’t just looking for a killer, now they have to find a missing baby. I expected the entire episode to be about them tracking down the infant, so when they find it safe and sound with its father, I liked that the mystery still remained of what happened to the mother.
