In one of the early episodes, it shows him alone in a bar, there are only men in the bar. No, they are not playing YMCA on the sound system. Not every gay man is like 'Will and Grace'.
They treat it as matter of fact. The writing is good.

So you watch this character when the other cops are making sexist remarks. He is just silent. I think his character is in the closet.

was that the bar where he goes to the restroom and some guy tries to sell him drugs? I guess there might have been only men in that bar....if so that totally went over my head good catch

I will agree the writing is good on this. I have enjoyed every episode that i have seen thus far. None of this seems too over the top, since some of what goes on happens in real life and you can read similiar stories in the headlines. People really do call 911 because they cannot get chicken nuggets at McDonalds, or whatever.

And that rogue cop, thats actually C. Thomas Howell, wtf? Is he really that old or has the last 20 years not been that kind to him. He looks like shit...i remember him in a few movies in the early 80's. He plays the role well though.

he has had at 3 bar scenes, maybe more

the first one I remember was in an early episode towards the end.

he just goes in sits at the bar by himself, and then the camera pans out and you see there are only men in the bar, some paired off and in conversations

not blatant, but a clue early on

I didn't catch that either. Were they the ones that responded to the transsexual being harassed?

these scenes were incidental, at first I just thought they were trying to establish that character as a bit of a loner. You will notice he has never mentioned his marital or relationship status

hopefully you can catch some reruns and see what I am talking about.
(I don't think it is all in my head)

Well it looks like this show got canceled.

NBC gives us Leno 5 nights a week in prime time.

We have about 6? versions of CSI and how many versions of Law and Order?


This show was good but they would not even give it more than 6 episodes.

Network TV is really sucking these days.

They're still trying to find some other network pick up the show. It would do well on TNT or something like that.

I'm not losing hope yet.

And also, fuck Jay Leno.

I like to see it go to FX and get more of an edge like "The Shield" or even AMC home of Mad Men and Breaking Bad.
