Prime Suspect (US)

NBC 2011

A look inside a New York City homicide department. Tough-as-nails NYPD homicide Detective Jane Timoney is an outsider who has just transferred to a new squad where her new colleagues already dislike her. Jane is confident and focused—and also rude, abrupt and occasionally reckless. She has her vices, and rumors about how she got the job follow her everywhere—but at the end of the day, she is an instinctively brilliant cop who can not be distracted from the only important thing: the prime suspect. The series allows us to plunge into the life of Jane Timoney as we also investigate New York crimes and uncover intriguing mysteries.

Based on a UK series and produced by Peter Berg, Prime Suspect is a gritty New York cop drama starring Maria Bello. Season 1 follows homicide detective Jane Timoney as she tries to break into the old boys club of her squad and deals with the drama between her boyfriend and his ex-wife. Unfortunately the antagonistic setup between Tmoney and her co-workers hurts the show, as there’s not a lot of team work to solve cases (which is kind of a staple of police procedurals). Still, the writers come up with some interesting cases-of-the-week and do a good job at creating suspense and intrigue. And Bello gives a strong performance, making Timoney an exciting and fun character. Yet Prime Suspect wasn’t able to find an audience and was canceled by NBC after 13 episodes.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
