Graceland – Not Your Typical Cop Show

Graceland1

Somewhere in Southern California, in a drug raid run by the US government, a beachfront property was seized and turned into a residence for undercover cops. They are all top agents of the DEA, FBI, and Customs and they are living in this house unofficially known as “Graceland”. “Graceland” is a place full of secrets, and bad, good, and blurred moments too. The only idyllic thing is its outside look, but the lives of its residents are nothing like it. The lies which are in the base of their undercover work, are formed a web of lies that pervades everything. Coming of a new graduating at the top of his class, FBI rookie, Mike Warren (Aaron Tveit), could make the life of a legendary FBI agent Paul Briggs (Daniel Sunjata) and the others, more complicated or it could reveal the truth. It is based upon actual events.

This show took a bit of getting used to, several different law agencies under the same house in an undercover situation running different or same ops. The characters of the show were interesting and the best of the bunch is Paul Briggs, is he a bad guy or a good guy, or good guy doing bad things to beat the bad guys. Then you have Mike Warren the best of the best out of Quantico, top of his class and meant to investigate Briggs. The whole house is filled with a bunch of characters and the story takes some interesting twists and turns over the 13 episode season, pretty impressive and I’m looking forward to the second season. It was a hell of an ending but left just enough of it unanswered so I don’t know where this will go next. For a cop show this is a different kind of show but short and sweet.
