Good premise, terrible execution. Why? Three major writing staple are all but ignored: 1) Stakes: What happens if this experiment fails? Considering the 13th precinct by itself only comprises about 4.5% of Chicago's law enforcement cache (per the show)... not much. Why does this matter? If the show doesn't give its characters anything to emotionally invest in, why would we (the audience) keep watching? Even the weak pull of finding Reeves' BFFs killer is solved in episode one. Why wasn't it a serial killer? Or the Mob? ANYTHING that posed a bigger, more significant and longer lasting threat? 2) Character Motivation: Why does Reeves even want this? Because he sees a problem he thinks he can help solve. Ok, that's good. Why are the cops and Mayor opposed to this? Because... reasons. This defies logic. If Reeves is offering the funding and tech to improve law enforcement, there is NO ONE who would oppose it. So all of the dissension here feels artificial for no reason since they COULD HAVE given the characters proper motivations for their feelings. Reeves could have walked in disrespecting them, calling them stupid, saying they're the reason crime happens and fired everyone who didn't "shape up" fast enough, replacing them with hired merceneries. And then over the course of the season, Murphy and Conrad could have helped Reeves see that they all needed to work together, merging old school and new school tactics to get the job done. 3) Conflict: This is when two characters either want different things, or when they want the same thing, but have different approaches to a solution. As far as I can tell, everyone wants the same thing here, but everyone opposes Reeves anyway. Just because. Reeves' conflict with the Mayor would make more sense if, say, another billionaire was backing the Mayor and planning to propose something similar but Reeves beat him to it. Reeves' conflict with the cops would make sense if they (the cops) felt things were working fine as is--but they didn't. So these people are fighting this endeavor for no reason, making this one of the most frustrating show viewings I've had in a long time. And, again, for NO REASON, considering I just spitballed several amateur solutions for all of those problems, so you'd think the people who are paid to do it could too. Right? Here's hoping they do within the next couple of episodes cuz I'd hate to see such a good and timely premise wasted by professional laziness.

This review is based on the very first episode, so it might change again, over time. But so far, this show seems to be off to a good start. Interesting story line with a lot of potential to expand and good characters that have lots of room to be "fleshed out" over time. This should be the beginning of a great show. I really hope they don't screw this up because I see a lot of potential in this. After watching the full first episode I have to say, I am disappointed. The show did have potential and it was off to a good start with the first few episodes but took a dive after that. It got a bit boring and stale. It did pick up with the last two episodes but I am not sure if this is going to be enough to keep the show going. I can honestly say I will keep watching if it gets another season but I won't be crying over it if it gets cancelled after just this one season.
