Dark Blue: The Complete Second Season
Review by Suzanne Lanoue
I really loved this show and watch every episode of both
seasons. The acting was superb and the writing was
pretty fabulous. I have no idea why it didn't do better in
the ratings. Perhaps it was the title, which doesn't really
tell you what it was about: undercover cops in L.A.
I love Dylan McDermott, the star of the show, and I'll
watch him in just about anything. If this show hadn't been
canceled, he probably wouldn't have done this past year's
show "American Horror Story", which was great...so... it's a
trade-off. But I liked Dark Blue a whole lot better.
The other actors were great, too, and in the second
season, Tricia Helfer (most known for playing Six on
Battlestar Galactica) joined the cast, so it was even
It is really too bad they canceled, but I'm very grateful
that they put the show out on DVD. It has lots of great
drama and action.
The DVD has no features or extras that I could see, which
is a shame. I would have liked to have seen some interviews
with the cast and crew.

from Warner Archive.
Season Two of Dark Blue continues to thrill as Dylan McDermott stars as Carter Shaw, part of a crack undercover team of police officers so covert, many of their own colleagues are kept in the dark. The strong-willed Carter often pushes the limits of the law in his efforts to bring down bad guys through complex undercover assignments. His team includes Ty (Omari Hardwick), whose commitment to his covers have left him struggling to define the boundaries between work and his home life; Dean (Logan Marshall-Green), a shoot-from-the-hip cop whose activities make his fellow team members wonder which side he's really on; and Jaimie (Nicki Aycox), a green patrol cop brought in for her shady past and excellent skills in lying, who's out to prove that she has what it takes. New to the team this season is Alex Rice (Tricia Helfer, Battlestar Galactica), a sarcastic and ambitious, Berkeley-educated FBI agent brought in to oversee these covert cowboys. But it's Carter she really has her eye on…
