Trivia

VARDA-alarm is an acronym which stands for Voice-Activated Radio-Dispatched Alarm. It is a type of burglar alarm that, when activated or "tripped", broadcasts the type of the alarm and the transmitter location over the local police radio frequency using a pre-recorded audio message. It bypasses "911 Dispatch system" and sends a red alert to all police within the vicinity. See more »

I liked it.
17 October 2018 | by iix-31422See all my reviews

In this season off terrible TV shows like FBI, Mayan MC and Magnum P,I, This show is a breath of fresh air. The characters are in place in the first 15 minutes of the beginning. We know where we stand and how the show is going to run. The writers apparently DON'T think we are stupid like the ones in "Manifest". This is not a re-invention of TV but, god, did we need something that didn't suck in this worst TV season of all ages (I refer to "The Connors" ).
