"Stalker" review by Suzanne
Airs Wednesdays 10/9pm on CBS

I tend not to like cop shows where the cops are violent or abuse their power or break the rules. Unfortunately, that means there aren't too many cop shows I can watch, especially nowadays. This one is no different. It's a shame because I like the actors who star in the show, Dylan McDermott and Maggie Q. Neither character is very likable in this show, despite their charm and acting abilities.

She plays Beth, who's in charge of the Threat Assessment Unit in Los Angeles (they handle stalker cases).  He plays Jack, a cop who was just transferred there from New York City. They both have odd, offbeat senses of humor.  They also both have secrets and hidden pasts, which is a bit contrived.  Beth has been stalked (and may still be now), and she ends up threatening and physically assaulting a guy. Jack cheated on his wife, and perhaps was also physically violent. His wife and son live in Los Angeles, so now he's kind of stalking them. 

We're supposed to see, I guess, that there's a fine line between being in love and being a stalker, and that even the police that hunt down stalkers are kind of stalker-like themselves. I'm just not sure I buy the premise, or that I care enough about these two messed-up people to want to keep watching.

If you like shows that really shock and surprise you, and keep you guessing, and you don't mind some violence or lack of heroes, then you might like this one. I'm not saying it's terrible; it's just not my kind of show. It's a little too dark and kinky for my tastes.
