My Thoughts

There's something about a great crime drama that I just can't resist, and 19-2 is now my newest addiction. This series puts you right is the heart of the streets with actual officers working the beat. Nick is struggling with a former shooting and his partner Ben is still something of a rookie cop. Both are a little wary of the other, but after a few years together, they are learning to trust each other in the mist of a bizarre and violent rash of crimes that are hitting their city. This DVD set contains 10 great episodes plus a bonus.

 Burn Pile-  The mole in the department has everyone on edge, and the partners are first respondents in a serious wreck.

 Rescue- A teenager may have witnessed the death of Nick's cousin, and a new rookie is on the scene.. 

Chicken - Ben helps Nick find his cousin’s killer. The rookie gets himself in trouble during a robbery.

 Bitch -  Nick’s mobster informant might know something about Kaz’s death. Bear takes some big risks to  help the squad.

 Protest Pants - Ben’s dad has an accident that leads to tough choices.  Station 19 is divided over some new policies.

 City -  Ben’s dad disappears, and JM and Audrey’s find themselves in some trouble.

Honeymoon - Ben tries to keep his dad safe, and Audrey meets someone new. Elise takes over the Kaz murder case.

 Fall - The witness to the Kaz murder is sent to a safe house. Ben and Amelie take in a boarder that may not be what he seems.

Gone - The whole precinct is on the case of a missing person.  Nick and Ben have some personal clashes. 

]Water  - The truth comes out about a cop’s death. Elise  won't give up on her case. Cliff hanger ending means Season 4 is on the way!

This is such a great series. It's filled with edge of your seat action, and Ben and Nick both make for some nice eye candy as well! If you'd like to grab a copy of this fantastic DVD set, it is available on Acorn Media for only $49.99. You can also find it on amazon
