Is It Any Good?

Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This sanitized, predictable police drama focuses more on the professional and social interactions of the new police chief than it does on actual crime solving. Edie Falco delivers as a tough police officer and reluctant feminists icon, but the series' main characters feel underdeveloped and two-dimensional. Despite the attempt to introduce timely and provocative plotlines, the writing isn't strong or compelling enough to make them worth investing in. As a result, Tommy isn't all that entertaining or memorable.
