Is It Any Good?

Anderson brings a lot of heart to his role, and it's nice to watch him inhabit a starring role, especially after he's played so many silly peripheral characters. As Boulet, he fights to keep his family intact despite his wife's move to Atlanta, where she lives with their young daughter (who, like many children who were living in New Orleans during Katrina, suffers from traumatic memories and has difficulty sleeping).

With plenty of conspiracy theories and political resentments on tap, K-Ville can be heavy viewing. Car chases, flying bullets, bloody injuries, and devastating flashbacks to hurricane scenes make the show an iffy choice for younger viewers, but older teens may be able to handle the violence, which is pretty standard cop show material. Scenes from present-day New Orleans are alternately upsetting and gorgeous.
