Storyline

Being police officers has stripped Max and Donny bare, to the point where they're about as morally ambiguous as the criminals they chase. Max has developed his own methods for dealing with bad guys, having lost interest in conventional police work, while Donny has become slightly unhinged by the job yet remains faithfully optimistic. The partners' paths cross with local drug dealer Carlos, who's caught in a turf war and whom Max uses to infiltrate the neighborhood's criminal underworld.

True Grit
12 March 2009 | by DarkATXSee all my reviews

This seems to be a repeating theme in all the previous comments. This show is all grit and grim with absolutely no flashy gimmicks. It has a really dedicated ensemble cast. Given a chance to thrive (with everyone growing into their respective roles) The Line will be the 'dark horse' show to watch out for.

What draws you in are the characters - rogue burnt out cops, a self-loathing legal aid, a fearless no-nonsense janitor and an anxiety attack ridden, drug dealer caught up in the middle of two rival gangs. The show in essence is a police drama yet there are no heroes here - just emotionally, psychologically and physically scarred human beings 'just trying to make a living' as Hector the drug dealer states in the second episode.

No flash, no pizazz - no putting on of shades trying to look cool between takes - just pure drama. From violent heartache to disturbing humour, this show makes no apologies for what it is.

Good solid entertainment!
