Edward Burns Rescues TNT’s Noir-Tinged ‘Public Morals’ From Cop Drama Cliché

I really enjoyed the first episode, and it sounds like it is only going to get better. Who caught the pilot and what did you think?


Edward Burns knows his stuff. Public Morals, TNT’s gritty new cop drama, takes place in the ’60s (though there are elements of earlier decades as well) and has fun with the dialogue, the costumes, the expensive cars, and the similarities to the multiple familiar noir stories that came before it. It’s not wholly original, but Burns (actor, creator, and occasional director on the series) makes it personal, and largely succeeds.
