Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!
There are several things on tonight that I wanted to recommend, but I decided to stay true to my cop show-loving heart, so my pick tonight is the series premiere of East New York. Not only is it a cop show, but the cast has two members who I love in everything I’ve watched them in: Jimmy Smits and Richard Kind.
Amanda Warren stars as Deputy Inspector Regina Haywood, the newly promoted boss of the 74th Precinct in East New York — a working-class neighborhood on the edge of Brooklyn in the midst of social upheaval and the early seeds of gentrification. With family ties to the area, Haywood is determined to deploy creative methods to protect her beloved community with the help of her officers and detectives. But first, she has the daunting task of getting them on board, as some are skeptical of her promotion, and others resist the changes she is desperate to make. Her team includes her mentor, shrewd veteran two-star Chief John Suarez (Smits); Marvin Sandeford (Ruben Santiago Hudson), a highly respected training officer and expert on the neighborhood; Tommy Killian (Kevin Rankin), a detective with some old-school approaches to policing; Capt. Stan Yenko (Kind), Haywood’s gregarious and efficient right hand; Crystal Morales (Elizabeth Rodriguez), an intuitive detective who can’t be intimidated; Andre Bentley (Lavel Schley), a trainee from an upper middle-class background; and ambitious patrol officer Brandy Quinlan (Olivia Luccardi), the sole volunteer to live in a local housing project as part of Haywood’s plan to bridge the gap between police and community. Regina Haywood has a vision: she and the squad of the 74th Precinct will not only serve their community — they’ll also become part of it.
On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” Amanda Warren is promoted to be boss of the 74th precinct in East New York, where she must get her crew on board — but some are skeptical of her promotion.
Check out the latest cop drama tonight on CBS at a special time of 9:30/8:30c.
I’ll also be watching Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire, SEAL Team, Celebrity Jeopardy!, Celebrity Wheel of Fortune, Family Law, Halloween Wars, Outrageous Pumpkins, & The Rookie.
