I thought to give this a try even though I’m not big on procedural shows, if you’d call this that. To me there are already too many cop dramas on in various forms and I normally save mine for Wednesday & Friday nights, in Lethal Weapon and Hawaii 5-0. That later for me is a 1 hour vacation of beautiful landscapes and I don’t have to pay to travel for. I like the 5-0 chemistry, especially Dan-O and McGerrit they crack me up when they start to argue. There’s also the chemistry of Lethal Weapon’s characters, and like Hawaii 5-0 its not all seriousness. Yes they are very similar and why
I gave a chance to APB, because I wanted to see what it would be like with the cutting edge technology in it. Would it be full drama, or would we have some funny moments like with Hawaii 5-0 and Lethal Weapon.
As far as the first episode goes, there was the drama of Precinct 13 not having the funding they need to do their jobs so it’s an incredibly bad area. Billionaire Gideron buys the precinct, and when the APB app comes out, the war on crime takes a turn in the cops direction.
(why isn’t there an app like this in real life? I mean you can’t always make a verbal call, especially when a text won’t get you shot! Just make sure you put your phone on silent mode if they haven’t seen you yet!)
Wow those cops fight great! They don’t fight like the cops on any other show, that looked like there was some martial arts thrown in. Oh yea and fast choreography. So we not only have some cool fast fight scenes, chase scenes as well. I do like those jackets but I thought they were fully bullet proof. Also they look a lot more comfortable and moveable in.
After watching a few weeks (it takes the time slot of Lucifer which I think had its season finale) I find the angle of the technology in it interesting.
Its a crime of the week sort so I wouldn’t call it binge worthy, but should definitely watch the first 3-4 episodes.
