News & Interviews for Public Morals: Season 1
It's easy for a director to fall in love with his décor to the detriment of the storytelling.
Public Morals is engaging enough, with a jazzy pace, assured direction and a number of fine performances.
All the stories are connected, and the cast is universally great.
The action in this drama is there to serve the characters, who are always unique and engaging.
With its '60s look and its vintage '60s musical soundtrack, I like to think of it as a formerly undiscovered 10-hour cop movie from that era.
Even if subtlety isn't going to be part of the equation, Burns makes up for it with his wiseguy humor, rapid-fire dialogue and a high volume of plot.
The show gets its energy from its wonderful character actors: the wheezy-voiced, fast-talking Burns, who gives the no-bullshit Muldoon a sense of cheerful relatability... Michael Rapaport as the mushy-hearted veteran detective Charlie Bullman.
The series isn't like most other cop shows currently on the air. It's gritty at times, sure, but it's also very funny, and it never comes off as formulaic.
Public Morals blends somewhat predictable plotting with decent character development and recognizable period, cultural flourishes.
While there's never a shortage of cop dramas on TV, Public Morals proves it has something to offer.
