Is it me or are there a lot of female cop shows on cable today? Maybe I just seem to
be attracted to them, so here is another one from last night. This show is called The
Protector and is about a LAPD homicide detective named Gloria Sheppard. She is
recently divorced with two young boys and lives with her brother Davey. The rest
of the show is pretty routine. You have a murder which she investigates, you then
have a chase scene (this one was in a car wash), some time in a bar and finally an arrest.
This week's victim was a cop groupie and it was thought that one of Gloria's co-workers
was the suspect. His wife became part of the mix too and it was discovered that
a perp from his past had set him up. All in all this is not a bad show. There is the
usual workplace flirting and home life chaos so I guess my only criticism is that
there isn't anything fresh or new about the cast of characters.
