So, I've just watched season one (yep, I'm on the cutting edge) and I have to say I was massively disappointed.
The first 3/4 episodes were pretty good and then it all went too shit.
Too many comic interludes, other than Mackey the rest of the Strike Force were shit...Shane is a cunt and would blatantly never be picked to be a detective (yes, I know it's not real), Lemonhead was a dick too and the other guy who had about 5 lines in total was toss too.
The whole Mackey-Gilroy-Aceveda corruption/investigation storyline was rushed and seemd cobbled together too.
So, does it get way better in Season 2-5 or am I bettre off selling Season one on ebay and having no more to do with this show?
