I've enjoyed that. Carving dude's detective work in ep 3 pays off in ep 4. Didn't need to follow it closely, but a nice through-line if you did. Just. His first appearance was a big deal, his second... just to let us know he's coming back. Love how he's better at this than the cops.. I don't have any of the names, really. And a few of the characters who only show up from time to time, I'm not really clear on exactly who they are. The story always makes the relationships clear, but exactly which person is which isn't obvious beyond the main cast. I'm still not totally clear on how the judge has so much authority over everything...? Another piece of what makes it work, and why it relies so heavily on plot, is that it feels like a documentary. It is convincing as a portrayal of the "real" police. Which was part of why the Pryzb. little plot was disappointing - could a real cop be such a screw-up? But then, the show actually gets some lee-way in its story-telling, because it's so plausible the rest of the time. I can imagine the writers talking about what they had to tone down, so people would believe it. Does anyone know of any interviews or commentary where the realism is discussed?
