This tough lady detective reminded a lot of critics of some else (“Skirty Harry”? “Dirty Harriet”?). Working the seedier side of Chicago, she tracked down drug pushers, money launderers, rapists, and other slime, blasting away with her .357 Magnum more often than Internal Affairs would have liked (but, of course, those she blew away were always guilty). Though she could be reasonably sexy, the violence in her life tended to get in the way of any truly sensitive relationship. Terry was her worried-but-supportive boss, and Gina was a fellow officer.

Filmed on location in Chicago.
