Low Winter Sun

Series Summary
The line between cops and criminals is sometimes blurry. When human nature intercedes and a man is forced to take matters into his own hands, there's not a badge big enough that will stop him. Detroit homicide detective Frank Agnew is used to helping others, but he can't help himself when a loved one is abruptly taken from him by a corrupt element. Vengeance gets the better of Agnew, and now he finds himself and his career at the mercy of fellow detective Joe Geddes, a smart but slimy veteran cop whose misdeeds may involve covered-up murders. "Low Winter Sun" -- a gritty, dark drama played out amid Detroit's underworld -- is based on the 2006 award-winning British miniseries of the same name.

  • The drama, which is an adaptation of a U.K. series of the same name, tries way too hard to be a Serious Cable Drama. The strain almost turns it into a parody of the genre. Show More

  • Low Winter Sun grabs you by the lapels and pulls you--forcefully--right into its seamy, low-rent world of intrigue and double- and triple-crosses. Show More

  • Low Winter Sun too often lingers on Detroit's colorless evil more than its spirited righteousness, resulting in an overwhelmingly bleak narrative that feels as cold and lifeless as a corpse. Show More
