Based on the award-winning Qu├ębec series of the same name, 19-2 is a richly-nuanced and character-driven drama surrounding the daily lives of two unwilling partners of the Montreal Police Department, Officers Nick Barron and Ben Chartier.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

19-2 is the patrol car for 2 Montreal beat cops . The senior officer, Nick, watched his former partner get shot in the head. He takes care of him until he dies. New partner, Ben, arrested his drunk father after he hit a 10 year old boy and fled the scene. He transferred to Montreal.

In the first season, the patrol room has a barely functional drunk cop and another who beats his wife and sexually harasses his female co-workers. One big happy family they ain't.

The characters are well developed and the writing is excellent.
