A.P.B. - FOX Monday




Series Premiere

S01E01 - "Hard Reset"
Monday - February 6, 2017

Description:
More:
Sky-high crime, officer-involved shootings, cover-ups and corruption: the over-extended and under-funded Chicago Police Department is spiraling out of control. Enter billionaire engineer GIDEON REEVES (Emmy Award and Golden Globe nominee Justin Kirk, “Tyrant,” “Weeds”). After his best friend is murdered in a botched attempted robbery, and the killer remains at large, Gideon demands justice. Putting up millions of dollars of his own money, he makes an unprecedented deal to take charge of the troubled 13th District – and reboot it as a technically innovative police force: better, faster and smarter than anything seen before. With Gideon himself having created the department’s cutting-edge technology, this eccentric yet brilliant outsider challenges the city’s police force to rethink everything about the way they fight crime.

Re: A.P.B. - FOX Monday

This premiere wasn't good at all.

This series is supposedly a true adaptation of a District's police department taken over by a millionaire.

A lot of cliches were used throughout the hour, with no payoff that wasn't expected.

I'll watch another couple episodes to see where it goes, but I wasn't impressed with the pilot.

I'm sorry to say, but this episode was worse than the first.

I'll give it another, but I ain't promising.

Re: A.P.B. - FOX Monday

Hate of Comrades, was only slightly better than the previous episodes.

The procedural portion of the episode was totally bogus.

Bringing in a "lie-detector-chair" almost forced me to change the channel.

What I did find interesting was the backstory of Ada, the tech-savoy young girl.

We found out last episode, this young girl, who can't be more than 21 years old, already has a doctorate in computer science. But, in this episode, we found out in order to help a young boy in a tough situation, she's willing to do anything.

Whoever she called, who was also a computer genius, was also on the wrong side of the law. And, what will be her repayment is only left to the imagination.

Re: A.P.B. - FOX Monday

Didn't like this episode either. To predictable!

Gideon devises a way to keep an undercover officer from having his wire found during a search. I'm sure you can determine what happens in the episode from its title. Signal Loss!

I only watched a short while of this show. It was during the time when someone cut off someone else's fingers very graphically. Too much so for me. Then the dialogue was cheesy. I quit after about 5 minutes.
