A show about post-Katrina New Orleans could be considered long overdue. But, given the quality of the pilot episode... perhaps the could have waited a little longer?

Anthony Anderson is the face that turns up everywhere. From Scorcese’s The Departed to Michael Bay’s Transformers. This is his second television series and we hope it lasts longer than his first.

But, again, it is all about the writing. The idea of a cop who drinks on the job pairing with an escaped convict pretending to be a cop is new and quite unusual. We mostly want to see our beloved N’Awlins in something a bit longer lasting than the 50’ show Bourbon Street Beat (which pretended to be in the Big Easy) and Larry Hagman’s post-Dallas flop Orleans.
