I love this show. It's Southern California with all it's bloat and gas and warts,with all it's beauty and it's fugly. It's the frustrating limitations that law enforcement officers come up against. It's flawed, imperfect and good, decent human beings who happen to be police officers. Regina King is perfect as Lydia and she has some of the most beautiful eyes I've ever seen. In fact, the casting couldn't be better in my opinion.
