Against the Wall turns out to be first-rate drama. It's one of the best new shows of the year.
Against the Wall is all about putting women in charge - even those who are visibly pregnant - and that certainly makes it stand out in a flooded sea of crime shows that tend to pair strong secondary female characters up with stronger male leads.
I can't fault Against the Wall for not being as ambitious as The Chicago Code, but I can fault it for not being ambitious enough to have a clear idea of what it wants to be.
It might provide grown-up drama for women of an age more often served by sexist sitcoms. If not, Lifetime may be delivering just another old-fashioned family drama with nothing new to say.
There's a warmth to the characters and their relationships that should satisfy Lifetime's core audience.
