Flawed script

The main character is woman trying to break into leadership in an all male police precinct. I don't think she would make the choices she does because she demonstrates that her career is of greater importance than her relationships. Also don't like the nudity. Not necessary to show. There are ways to have the viewer understand without multiple shots.
