Of all the police shows I have seen, and there are a lot, this one seems the most real and the most gritty. It's shot almost like someone documenting an actual day with the LAPD, meaning it's not like a set and everything's perfect.
This seems the most realistic of any police drama out there. There are people with problems and seemingly real situations. It is Uncensored so not one for young kids but it, in my opinion, makes it more real. The biggest problem is once you get hooked season two, three, and four are all one set.
