Are they making any more?Rating: 0 likes, 1 dislikes

This is a cop show with a distinctly cosmopolitan or maybe, Neapolitan flavor. The acting is solid, the characters have depth, the European flavor is entrancing, and even the show itself seems to exude personality. It has a sophisticated and adult texture that makes the U.S. counterparts seem almost cartoonish. My only problem is that I never saw it here in the U.S. and I don't know if there will be any others made beside the first three episodes. Read more
