    "This is a spin-off of Law & Order so i have high expectations with it and yes i was impressed from the get go. Yeah it actually followed the basic premise of the original show but it was more loose in terms of format and execution. The entire cast is magnificent in portraying their roles. Now I know many people will disagree with me that this show is in no way better than the original but for me it is!!!! So deal with it!!!!"

    "I'm such a big fan of Brooklyn Nine-Nine so when I heard that this year was its last season after Fox canceled it i was devastated but then in just less than two days NBC announced it will renew the show. Thank God!!!! This is the new age police procedural comedy show with an excellent cast and spectacular production. Okay so i might have been biased because ya know i super love the show. :))))"

    "This HBO series The Wire is like the epitome of cop dramas due to the fact that is not just about cops but it also showed the inner workings of a police department. This is like a show that is near to reality that you will ever see. And it will be a long time before another one does it or surpass what a great show it was. "

    "Hill Street Blues is the show that combined the grittiness of ’70s crime thrillers with the loose and natural feel of an Altman production. I also think it became the deining example of how TV shows could be the same with the scope and depth of a cinema. "

    "Am always been fascinated by forensic science, so this was tailor-made for me!!! The show was intelligent and literate, with intriguing stories and also cool crime-fighting toys. Too bad though that it has already ended. But the good thing though I can rewatch it whenever as i have a dvd copy of this. "

    "First of all let me just say that the second season of True Detective sucked. But then that's not a big deal since i believe that the first season was incredible although it does remind me of other detective/procedural tv series it is so much more subtle and its acting is much better. "

    "The only show that i find to be good from the beginning to the end. I salute the writers on how they were able to seamlessly interwove the characters’ personal lives with the cases they were investigating. Plus this show will bring you to a certain maturity about life. *sigh*"
