This show was one of my guilty pleasures in the early 90s. Half-Drama, half-action, it always had a little something for everyone. Decent dialogue, interesting story lines, and good fight choreography (one of the episodes even had Billy Blanks fighting Bryan Genessee in the final scene).
Overall, the actors seemed to have decent on-screen chemistry (the romantic tension between Malloy and Beaudreaux, the Paternal-turned-fraternal relationship with Grady and Beaudreaux) and references to Grady's checkered past added some depth to the show.
Fast and stylish (at least by early 90s standards), Street Justice is a little like "Walker, Texas Ranger" if it had been aired on the WB(though this was long before the WB came out). Worth seeing if you could find it somewhere.
