I kind of like this show. I must admit that I rolled my eyes once or twice when I saw that Ice T was in the lead, knowing that rappers usually aren't the best actors in the business. But I soon noticed that this guy has a appealing quality: he's willing to abandon (partially) his tough-guy gangsta rapper routine and make a jerk of himself.

Something Ice Cube ought to do. Every time I see him, even as a comic relief (Anaconda), he always seems to frown and tough himself up like he's afraid he'll lose his rep in the hood or something. At least Ice T take a few risks, drops the bull, and looking appropriately goofy every know and then and I think that makes him more appealing to a wider range of people. This along with the series clever plots and direction, I can think of worse ways to spend my evening.
