Dark Blue - not hitting the spot

When I watch Dark Blue, it's dark, it's moody. But it's dull. The acting is fine, but the scripts are limited. I mean, how many big drug busts can one undercover unit make in the same city?

When I compare it to Southland, the other big cop show to have opened recently, the differences in quality become even more obvious. Even given that the plot possibilities in Southland are more open, it's just a much more watchable show.

Now don't get me wrong - I'll make a real effort to watch Mr McDermott in just about anything.

But ultimately, unless it finds some magical ingredient really soon, Dark Blue will just become Dark Bore.
