While it boasts street-wise accuracy and decent dialogue, NYC 22 doesn't differ enough from the standard police procedural template to guarantee a promotion in rank.

Brings street-side context to conversations and confrontations.

April 15, 2012 Full Review Source: PopMatters

Its pitfalls result in a rookie series that doesn't warrant much attention in television's already crowded cop-show department

It's clear almost as soon as the young police officers hit the streets in pairs, as they begin talking to one another in language and in tones recognizable as those in which people actually speak to one another... the enchantment process has begun.

Wall Street Journal

An incredibly generic, cliche-ridden series about rookie beat cops in the NYPD that too often feels like its main inspiration was other cop shows.

April 15, 2012 Full Review Source: HitFix

Very much a prototypical CBS show - it lacks ambition but it's not terrible.

Bona fide NYC flavor.

We have walked down these mean city streets so many times before, almost always in more interesting company.

The dialogue is crisp, no scene lasts too long, and despite the large cast, we can follow what's happening.

Given some time (admittedly, an unlikely prospect in today's instant-gratification world of broadcast TV), NYC 22 could develop into a dandy show.

While the show's vision encompasses a touch more character than the average procedural, this latest case of the NYPD blues is hardly a reason to start spreading the news.

April 15, 2012 Full Review Source: Variety

Isn't the best or worst show you'll ever see.

Nothing really jumps off the screen here.

Its greatest flaw is it's too familiar and predictable, but there's always been a market on TV for the familiar and the predictable.

What's needed is a little more courage and a lot more original thinking.

While the broad strokes tend to remind you that you're watching a fiction, the finer details are well done - the bits and pieces are satisfying, even as you note the rivets and seams that join them.

What works is the real atmosphere of the streets of NYC, and the acting, which, for the most part, is first rate.

Not very successful attempt to find a new angle in an exhausted genre.

Pretty much a by-the-numbers cop show.
