What is it? Not, sadly, a show designed for Michael Ironside to rove around America dishing out swift justice. Instead, this is a remake of the 1960s series (you know, the one with Raymond Burr as a detective who battles the bad guys from his wheelchair). This time, Blair Underwood is the lead, overseeing a handpicked team dedicated to taking down nasty criminals. This has come in for some flack already for casting an able-bodied actor in the lead, but apparently that’s because there will be lots of flashbacks to the days before he gets injured in a shooting. Sounds procedural to us, but Underwood’s charismatic, so it could work.
