I feel like they have to add that interaction just to keep it PC. Generally speaking, you can’t have a show these days without a gay character, a bad cop, illegal immigrants, and/or racists. Add in the bad priest to criticize religion (I’m not remotely religious but it always feels heavy handed). I wouldn’t care about any of this if it didn’t feel like an agenda. That being said, I do like this show. I am hoping it isn’t the young cop or Guy Pearce.
