I had read a review prior to trying this series, and was aware that there is a narrative that is commonly called "woke". I have a gay adopted daughter, and have had gay friends. However, I dislike it when I am forced to feel uncomfortable, with a close up of two men kissing. That would falsely indicate that I am prejudiced against gays. That scene was the beginning of the production company's social agenda checklist. A group of Caucasian religious conservatives.. (obviously narrow minded bigots),, check. A plucky, self reliant, intelligent woman with Down Syndrome.. check. A single non-Caucasian mother dealing with teenage kids, while being a professional and competent police detective.. double check. Aside from the obvious intention to wrap the series in a "blanket" of "wokeness". The acting is wooden, (because of poor directing?), and the script is subpar. As another reviewer pointed out here, and I have pointed out many times. I am not interested in the private lives of the police officers that are trying to solve a crime and bring the perpetrator(s) to justice. Many current "police dramas" use subplots to attract a certain demographic, and as time fillers so that some series have more episodes in them. I much prefer a Brit crime series called "Suspects" by comparison to much of what is currently being produced by woke production companies.
