'Ironside' series premiere: Will you keep watching Blair Underwood's return to TV?

Blair Underwood's new NBC series "Ironside" has finally premiered Wednesday night (Oct. 2). The cop drama follows the titular character, Detective Robert Ironside, as he continues to work for the police after a traumatic shooting that left him in a wheelchair. Ironside constantly bucks authority and fights crime his own way, and in the pilot he ultimately chooses to investigate a case to punish those responsible for a woman's suicide despite the fact he had realized her death wasn't a murder. It's Ironside himself who is the most interesting part of the show's pilot. It's eventually revealed that his former partner Gary Stanton (Brent Sexton) who hit Ironside with friendly fire and left him injured. Though it hasn't kept Ironside from the field, it's clear that he's dealing with some demons from that accident. Maybe that is what caused him to take such a dark turn and walk the line between being a risk-taking detective...
