Dark Blue: The Complete Second Season

 Review by Suzanne Lanoue 5/25/12

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 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 better.

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.

Here is more information about the MOD release of Dark Blue: The Complete Second Season ( 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…
