What it’s about: Gritty series about homicide cops in The Motor City (that’s Detroit, y’all)
What I thought about it: I haven’t seen James McDaniel since NYPD Blue. He shows up here on yet another police procedural. This one just didn’t keep my attention. Besides its cool retro soundtrack there wasn’t much to keep me engaged. Detroit 1-8-7 is a very by the numbers show. There is nothing unique about it. The characters didn’t really draw me in and neither did the case they were working on. 1-8-7 is cop code for murder. I predict a similar fate for this show.
