Somchai Ruang Script is excellent, there are a lot of details filled up. You can feel how each one connected to others. The dialogue is realistic/funny/rational. (I can watch over and over again) Casting and Acting are great. All leading roles & Supporting actors/actress are perfect well done to the roles. It is so good to bunch of characters in police department, well perform on each role.Cinematography is superb as always. For "Long-Shoot Take", you can find it in most of Edward Burns films. This can take much more effort to do including talented acting. Everything else in this film are outstanding, such as lighting, costume, etc."Thank you" to all staffs and crews that made this happen. Your work is excellent...
zekeblack Predictable Ed Burns... Love it or Hate it. This was a real ego-work. It was like he wanted to cartoon the era he was portraying. A collection of stereotypes, hookers with hearts of gold, long suffering wives, most of all men, men, men. The good guys are clear, the bad guys are clearer. Worst of all, by my consideration, was the dialog. Each line was classic James Cagney style, predictable--cliché -- and therefore boring as hell. It was classic Burns. I should not have expected subtlety. I am torn on how to rate it. I did not like it. I watched 10 episodes, hoping for redemption. But it was clearly written for Burns' ego, not for the sake of being a true period piece. I lived those times, although not Hell's Kitchen. This is no more than a cartoon from his imagination. Most of all men, men, men--- with relentless clichés. if that was what he wanted he succeeded wonderfully. I really disliked it immensely. Not my style.
mikasparky The objections I have to this work are many, and they are technical in nature. The scripts are poor--they don't resonate. The parts are too broadly played. Further, the costuming is even worse--full of anachronisms. The cars on the street aren't even right. The series likes to pretend it is accurately representing the era, but anyone who was alive back then knows better. How hard is it to hire someone in their sixties--or (gasp) their early seventies with a little attention to detail? Or simply check the DATES on things? This is a bad production that gets worse with each episode, and there's no reason that it had to be so awful. If you spend a lot of money on a series, at least try to find someone who won't put 1970s cars in a production that takes place in the sixties, women dressed like they are ready to go to the disco in the seventies, present-day 'five o'clock shadows,' and plastic- looking leather coats back in the sixties when these things were not part of the scene. This could have been good--instead it is dreadful. A crying shame.
MamiyaPress I really wanted to like this show a lot more than I did. Found the characters to be rather one-dimensional and stereotypical. Acting is spotty and production leaves something to be desired. Writing is uninspired, dialogue is cliché and story seems predictable - not expecting too many surprises going forward... Hope they can turn this one around 'cause it actually could have the potential to be an interesting a new twist on the ubiquitous "TV Cop Drama" genre if it were done right... Not to mention, (and now I'm just nitpicking) how do you start a show about the police "set in the early 1960's in New York City" with a song by The Doors?
