I’m still on the fence about the show. I want to like this show, but it just hasn’t sold me yet. I’ve never seen the original, so I don’t have that yardstick to measure it by. I do like the premise, and it shows some promise, but like some posters have already said, some of the chemistry seems off (“No-nuts”, the blonde lady police officer, seems like a particularly thin character), and the stories tend to be predictable.
Also, the show just has an costumey & artificial look to it. The street scenes in particular aren’t convincing. It look much too clean for NYC in '73, and wasn’t the hippie thing played out by then?
They’re also not particularly clever with the nostalgic references. And just how many shots of the WTC do we really need to see?
Bottom line - it’s OK, but could be much better.
On the plus side, last night we got to see Jason O’Mara handcuffed naked to a bed. Mmmmmm.
