Review of APB

APB (2016–2017)
Completely implausible, totally unrealistic...and I loved it!!!

Warning: Spoilers
Having taped the first five episodes of 'APB' on my DVR, I had the luxury of binge-watching the show like it was a streaming one (unfortunately however, with those pesky annoyances - commercials). And I was so glad I got to binge it, because after the pilot episode I just wanted more right away!

The premise? A tech billionaire Gideon Reeves (Justin Kirk), takes over a Chicago police district hoping to avenge the murder of his close friend (and his company's CEO), who was killed in a convenience store robbery. An officer he sees helping him achieve that goal is Detective Theresa Murphy (Natalie Martinez), an under-appreciated cop he has decided to team up with.

Reeves spares absolutely NO expense refurbishing the department with everything from new computers to state-of-the-art bullet proof vests to armor plated police cruisers. Where the uber-implausibility comes in are the VERY expensive drones he supplies the unit to help combat crime in the area.

As I previously stated, it's a completely implausible show and couldn't be less realistic. But that being said, 'APB' is a very entertaining hour on a Monday evening...even with those darn commercials!
