1 :01x01 - Cold Steel and Neon

Sep/20/1986
Wes Kennedy is a cop trying to cope with his wife's death, his job and two teen-agers. Wes investigates a murder involving a psychotic 12-year-old, while his children wrestle with affairs of the heart. DETECTIVE Wes Kennedy (Robert Desidero) has every reason to feel embittered. A veteran of the force, he was looking forward to spending a peaceful life at home with his wife and two kids when the worse happens — the senseless murder of his wife.

Knowing that he can never change the past nor bring the dead back to life, Kennedy decides to do his utmost to pick up the pieces and make the most of his life and also to be a good father to his teenage son Kevin (Jonathan Ward) and daughter Robin (Christina Applegate).

While his children sleep, Kennedy does his graveyard shift, roaming the streets and back alleys of Los Angeles, keeping his ears open for a sign of trouble while keeping his fingers crossed that there will be none.
