Danny Franks June 14, 2022 Share June 14, 2022 I just watched the first episode of this, and I'm hooked. The reveal of the second police tracker on Anderson's Jeep was great. This case seems to be similar to the one I saw a Netflix documentary on - New York narcotics cops in the 70s who started shaking down drug dealers for cash and drugs, and made themselves rich. Jon Bernthal is such a compelling actor to watch. The barely contained belligerence, the anger simmering behind his eyes, but a level of charm that can fool people when he wants to. He's perfect for a role like this. Josh Charles is really good too, as the thuggish, openly brutal cop. His entire outlook so far reminds me of that "Killology" bullshit that's taught to police, conditioning them to see members of the public as the enemy, as threats that have to be dealt with. He turned two encounters that didn't even need to occur into confrontations, and one of them ended up with a guy in hospital. We're already seeing lots of signs of cops covering for their own. But, by the end of this episode, it seems there are limits. 1 Link to comment
