Tv Season Info
"At face value, it's compelling stuff, offering a behind-the-scenes look at how cops do their jobs. Plus there's a solid justification for reopening the case now, with all the advancements in technology since the '90s .
In the case of its premiere episode, an interesting mystery is hampered by over-production, scripted interview scenes and other signs of a show trying to please instead of just letting the action unfold.
Many viewers, maybe millions of viewers, will watch Rodie and fervently hope that he does find his man. They won't be able to help themselves.
This is the kind of story that builds over time, so it's difficult to tell - Discovery made only one episode available - whether the rest of the series will stay as compelling as the pilot. But it's a doozy of an episode.
Reopened gritty murder case is rough, but respectful.
