Review by Suzanne 3/21/05
At first I thought this was a stupid premise for a show. How can a cop
be blind? It sounds like a bad joke.
Somehow, they make it work. I guess if you have great acting and
writing, almost anything is possible. Ron Eldard stars as Jim Dunbar, a
police detective who loses his sight. He relearns how to live with his
disability but then gets his job back. He is such a good detective that he
doesn't need to see to solve the cases. He uses his brain, as well as his
other senses, to help him. Having a good partner doesn't hurt, either.
Eldard has been one of my favorite actors for many years, ever since he
starred in a quirky short-lived sitcom "Bakersfield, PD". He went on to do
many dramas and movies that proved what a great actor he is. The show is
created by Steven Bochco of "NYPD Blue" fame, so you know it's well-written.
The other actors in the show, especially Rena Sofer as Dunbar's wife, are also
top-notch. Dunbar may be a great cop, but he still has to struggle with
martial problems and disrespect from some of his fellow cops, who are skeptical
about a blind cop, as well as his own doubts.
I will be interested in seeing how the series progresses and keeps our
interest. Check it out!
