Watchseries; I love cop shows. Been watching them a long time. I'm particularly fond of Chicago PD right now. But East New York is kind of different. In a good way. I really like Amanda Warren in this role. And Jimmy Smits is always great. Olivia Luccardi and Ruben Santiago are standouts as well. It's fast paced but also takes time with the characters. It has the usual 2 to 3 situations the officers are dealing with per episode. It's got a good vibe to it. I hope the writers stay true to the storylines and characters. I'm impressed so far. Give it a shot. Looking forward to episode 3. Go East New York!!!!!

East New York watchseries. The plot is good(ish). All the stereotype elements are there, all the plot characteristics are there, all the actors showed up on set, and then... everyone decided to "act" like they're on a crime show and "act".The acting is just plain terrible. Every single actor, ESPECIALLY JIMMY SMITS, ACTS like they're in a cop drama. Everyone is posing for the camera every second, everyone is stiff and wooden and the plot muddles along despite the acting. I was able to make it through the first episode but seriously, it took a lot of effort not to just guess what was going to happen because this is television and everything needs to have a resolution.What's the point of making something with "locations" if the camera jerks around and "catches" various elements of the background for nothing more than to make sure you know you're in Brooklyn?BTW, I've NEVER seen a dollar van that clean.
A police series is always pleasant to watch with interesting stories, so I was eager to experience this new tale. The first episode was okay and introduced some of the characters. But not knowing East New York I did not expect it to be a racial show across the spectrum with bickering, antagonism, etc. We have enough of this in real life, so we don't need to be reminded of racial tension in mock up stories. Rather give us positive stories about crime, whoever commit them, and have experienced policemen and women and detectives investigate such happenings without bothering to be political correct. I am now satisfied that this show is not meant for me.
I like the characters but the location should be East Side New York City for me. Stories of the super rich is more to my liking. Not eastern section of the borough of Brooklyn. It more real especially in the upper ranks of the police department, where political influence is obeyed by those in high places! I only watched the 1st episode and a commander(Deputy Inspector)wanting to serve in the poor sections of the city is ridiculous in the 2022 era of NYC. There are way to many cop shows and movies showing the poor neighborhoods of Chicago, NYC already. The ranks above captain is a political influence/controlled by all the elected officials of the city, where the mayor is the head. The upper ranks in the police department are board line politicians to in many cases.
I'm a senior citizen, and I really appreciated the mature characters in the show.... It has the makings of a great show..... It has intelligent dialogue, interesting plot lines, and characters the viewer actually cares about.....That being said, the dialogue doesn't clearly reflect the storyline.... It required the viewer to painstakingly follow every word or you may not understand the ending.....which I didn't. For example, I had to go back a view times to understand the conclusions of the crime.....Again, needs work to make storyline and hence, ending, less muddled. Glad to see that it didn't descend into a soap opera drama as so many crime dramas do.
Not without flaws but I felt some solid emotions out pilot. Nice diverse cast. So far i like all the characters which is rare. A cop show that just feels different in a good way. Hopefully it does well. I like the cop deputy/chief/I'm not sure if I got the title right. She's tough but shows emotional consideration. And just has a personality i don't see that often. I can see this show going places if it paces well and avoids predicatability. I'm curious about where the characters will go. The pilot has set up a lot so it will be interesting how they unfold going forward. I'll be watching and seeing if it meets up.
