OVERALL: Good TV. Check out this show!
POINTS: Love the two smart, sharp, women – Kelly Siegler and Yolanda McClary – who are the focus of this show.
PITFALLS: It’s not two hours long. I could always watch more.
FEMALE CHARACTER(S): Kelly Siegler and Yolanda McClary are the show. They are experienced and talented professional women who rockin’ this show out. Watching these two heroines, two professionals, at the top of their game is exhilarating and exciting. I truly enjoy this show.
CULTURAL PITFALL(S): None. Shows people at their best doing the best they can.
HIGH POINT(S): I love that small town people, and many Southern people, shining. As a Midwestern woman I get very tired of the big city bigotry that exists towards rural America. It is good to see our heroines go to and work with small town law enforcement officials bring justice to their communities. A lot of times, as our heroines say, the small towns don’t have the people or resources to conduct in depth criminal investigations. So the duo bring in the resources of the TNT network, their own expertise, and the expertise of others to help solve crimes. Along the way we get to see how good the people in these. We finally get a view of small town America that shows the people as good, solid, smart, and fun. It debunks the “redneck” stereotype we are fed so often in our media and I like it!
Plus good grief Kelly Siegler and Yolanda McClary ROCK!!!!!!!!
