S.W.A.T. (CBS) – Premieres 2nd November – Renewed
Police drama that follows a unit within the LA SWAT Team. After coming to the assistance of two policemen caught under fire in a warehouse the team chase down the assailants leading to three of the four perps getting caught in a rather extravagant manner, but with the final shooter the team leader accidentally shoots down a kid in a black neighbourhood.
This leads to the team leader being relived of duty, and to try and make the unit more approachable to the community the only black member of the unit is promoted to take over the vacancy. While this instantly effects his love life where he has to break off his relationship with the Captain of the LAPD, he takes the opportunity to use his knowledge of the area to gain the trust of the locals to help with breaking the cases the they are put on.
Even for a CBS police show this is tough going to get through, ignoring that the SWAT team would hang out in an underpass shooting things after their shift is finished, this is a clunky as hell drama, that becomes laughably bad in places.
