It's an old-style police drama about homicide detectives. Nothing fancy about technology, no impressive huge projector (could somebody turn on the light?), no vast computer monitor (it would take you 3.1415926 seconds to walk from end to end of that monitor), no incredible multi-touch screen (ain't your hands tired?), no Windows-7-like gradient or translucency filter (my eyes hurt), no RSA-encrytion break (give me a break really), no tap-in into analogous CCTV (how on Earth they could do that, psychic?), just simple and straight into the point of a show like this should be.

I was wondering recently, why would so many police drama shows have to make up a lot of sci-fi equipment/interface stuff? It's not as if you can't have hi-tech stuff, but they really over-do and ridiculous exaggerate.

The first one I saw which has been under control is Chase. It has a great start, especially the first fight scene. I noticed the actress also played in Past Life, which I only watched the first episode. The bad guy was from The Beast, good show, but he looked more like bad guy in The Beast. Anyway, after starting, it became average.

Then Hawaii Five-0, a re-imagining version, its pace was too fast for pilot episode, I felt they rushed to put everything into place in just one episode. I don't know if that's what the original does, but it just don't make sense to me. In the end of first episode, they were cleaning up the office, where the heck those documents from? Those were like records or reports after ten years work. The leading actor, you should know he is the doctor from Three Rivers, cancelled, it had a lot of fancy stuff and the characters settings were really strange, but I watched whole season.

Back to Detroit 1-8-7, since it goes back the most important element of a show, it all depends on how the actors act. I think they are good. The only flaw in my opinion is the thing that Det. Finch has for Det. Sanchez, that really ruined the first episode. Why would writers always put love affection in every show?

Is it true that you can find many different caliber casings on a bridge in Detroit?
