I’m a little behind on TV, so I just watched TNT’s The Last Ship. Really a great premiere setting up what should be a fantastic series. There’s some more good stuff on tonight, including several premieres, so to help you narrow it down, check out our picks for the night.
NBC’s latest cop drama, Taxi Brooklyn, stars Chyler Leigh, from Grey’s Anatomy. She plays hard-as-nails Det. Caitlyn “Cat” Sullivan, a woman hell-bent on finding her father’s killer. After she’s demoted to foot patrol for reckless driving, disobeying orders, and personality conflicts, she meets taxi driver Leo Romba (Jacky Ido). A highly skilled driver, Leo is a charming French African from Marseille. Realizing Leo lied on his immigration forms, Cat offers him a deal: In exchange for his driving skills and taxi, she will help Leo with his immigration problem. In order to stay out of prison and avoid deportation, Leo agrees to partner with Cat and quickly becomes her personal driver, consultant, and friend as they race through the streets of New York solving cases and trying to uncover the mystery behind her father’s murder. It also stars Ally Walker (Profiler, The Protector) & Jennifer Esposito (Blue Bloods).
I love the premise of this, and the preview looked really good. Plus, Chyler Leigh is adorable, and I love Ally Walker and Jennifer Esposito, so I’m excited about the cast. Just like I’ve been jonesing for a good action movie recently, since the regular season ended, I’ve missed a good cop show that isn’t quite as focused on relationships. Hopefully, this one will fill the void.
On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” when Det. Caitlyn Sullivan is demoted to foot patrol for her reckless driving and a propensity for disobeying orders, she is forced to make a deal with a former wheelman turned taxi driver named Leo to help her solve the murder of her father.
See how Det. Sullivan handles her demotion tonight on NBC at 10:01/9:01c.
I’ll also be watching/DVRing So You Think You Can Dance, Young & Hungry, Mystery Girls, Restaurant Stakeout, Hot in Cleveland, Motive, & Jennifer Falls.
