Ironside: Season 1 (2013)
Critic Consensus: Ironside is an unnecessary, lackluster remake that could be a decent police procedural if it wasn't so mundane and monotonous.
This remake of the 1960s crime drama of the same name follows paraplegic police detective Robert Ironside (Blair Underwood) as he solves criminal cases in New York City. In Season 1, Ironside deals with a mistake from his past when a suspected murderer is released from prison. Other series regulars include Brent Sexton, Kenneth Choi, Neal Bledsoe and Pablo Schreiber.

As much as I like Underwood, the plot is all rather routine and most of this series wouldn't have looked out of place in the 1960s.
Ironside tries to be "not just another cop procedural", but it actually is, and it's not as special as we wanted it to be.
While Underwood does his best to add bite to the title character, he can't overcome the recycled feel of Ironside.
