Review of APB

APB (2016–2017)
Great idea but taking a bad turn
6 April 2017
Warning: Spoilers
The first episode of this was so exciting for me. An 'Elon Musk like' character who decides to use his powerful ideas and technology to change policing seemed like a great way to showcase the best of both policing and science.

Sadly, after the first five or six episodes it has become a platform for The Fox Network to show how brutal police tactics are far better than genius or technology. SPOILER A good example of this is how his non- lethal weapons are discarded after the flimsiest reason possible. The writers didn't even try to explain why police prefer killing over disabling suspects. END SPOILER

I've kept watching because the acting is quite good even and because there are a few nuggets of joy among the rubble leftover from the car chases.
