Reverting back to their mysteries seems to be the game for this network in 2024. This film is a new title, meaning it has zero establishing presence on the network. The cast is mostly new and I love this. I like not knowing a star’s cues and how they play the character or how a writer will write them. It gives the production a new energy and is even more interesting to see.

This sets up to be a team effort scenario that has a Magnum P.I. character with a CSI agent and Law and Order. It’s like a trio of popular crime dramas all rolled into these ninety minutes. If you like that concept, then this is something you’ll quite enjoy.

Content Notes: the film opens on a dead body, not graphic. The script is all about murder and revolves around that. There are some “danger” scenes that are “tense” and we learn about affairs.
