We love this show!

My husband and I watch it evertime it comes on. My sister's daughter is staying with us and we get together and watch it.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
Great messages
Great role models

dhonna in jerzee luvzit ... it is obvious that ' children ' are not the target audience ... however , it can give mature women a realistic view of the job description and if it is something that an individual may want to pursue ... thumbs up here

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (1 ):

Whether you like the show or not will depend on how much you like reality cop shows. The storytelling is good, if not overwhelmingly exciting. And the voices of the women are distinct -- it's hard not to get caught up in their stories and feel a lot of sympathy for them.

Still, while one episode might be interesting as a glimpse into this most difficult of jobs, it's hard to imagine watching week after week of drug dealers cursing officers out and perps getting busted. After all, a lot of crimes are surprisingly petty, and after awhile it can feel the same old, same old.
