Dylan McDermott plays Lt. Carter Shaw in Dark Blue on TNT and I think he’s pretty good looking. He’s been acting for years and I first remember him from The Practice in early 2000. In Dark Blue he leads a team of under cover cops that are so under cover his team isn’t even supposed to exist. The FBI has a file on him and believe he may have gone bad, but they soon discover that he’s running the streets turning in the bad guys.
The team he puts together works with criminals acting as criminals so often there is a gray line of darkness leaving them sometimes wondering what is right and what is wrong. I haven’t completely finished the season but I’m excited to see more character development and back story on Dylan’s character Lt. Shaw. Seems that once upon a time he had a woman in his life that he cared for deeply. Now, he’s in so deep any personal relationships would just put the female danger. This past relationship keeps him on top of Ty and keeping Ty’s wife safe. In one of the very early episodes Ty goes home to visit his wife for her birthday and endangers her life because he was in the middle of bringing down a case.
Lt. Shaw keeps all of the other characters in line and there isn’t anything he wouldn’t do to protect one of his own. It is that loyalty that keeps his team bringing down the bad guys because without it, one of them would be sure to turn. Jerry Bruckheimer creator of all things CSI, Without a Trace, and Cold Case also put together this edgy and dark cop show of undercover LAPD.
I’ll finish Season 1 and then probably watch Season two on Hulu or fancast if it’s available. I really like it and was looking for a summer show to watch! Order DARK BLUE: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON on DVD now on the WBshop.com or on Amazon.com. Dark Blue: The Complete First Season
