This is one of the best shows ever to be broadcast on tv. I know that is saying a lot, however this show was so well written, acted, filmed, etc., that it is hard not to say that. Yes, it is true that the first few episodes of the first season seem long and drawn out at first but if u stick with it you will not be disappointed. You find yourself falling in love with these characters, routing for the bad guys a lot of the time. This is not your typical cops and robbers law enforcement drama. in fact, this show far exceeds any cop drama ever created. Start from season 1 and keep watching, you will eventually get hooked and you will not regret it.
