What Did You Think of 'Boston's Finest?'

The new Boston Police reality show premiered last night on TNT. Did you watch? Did you enjoy the show?

Editor's note: We'll avoid any major plot details in this post, but we can't swear the comments will remain spoiler free. If you want to comment about specifics, please be kind and add a spoiler alert to the top line. 

After weeks of hype, "Bostons Finest" finally premiered Wednesday night. The TNT reality series follows Boston Police officers as they patrol the city. The show opened to strong reviews and a litany of excited tweets from the department itself.

The first episode focused on a fugitive hunt in Southie and Dorchester, a melee in Hyde Park, and an officer's bittersweet field trip to Lynn. And while other cop-based reality shows you've heard of focus on foot chases and shirtless arrests, "Boston's Finest" took the time to introduce officers and tell their stories before getting into the nitty gritty of arrests and manhunts.

What did you think? Were you impressed by the first episode or did you find it wanting? Does the show reflect well on Boston and its police department? Tell us what you think in the comments below. And please, flag any spoilers before you begin!

Matthew Your right , there is no respect for police in general. I do think that most cops are just assholes you have to take the good with the bad. I know one thing the BPD at area 1 are the best. Donnie needs to follow those guy's on a night shift down around China Town to Quincy Market those officers deal with all kinds of lunatics !

Are you serious? You insult police officers and then go on to praise them? Most cops are not "assholes". And if they are, it's from years of dealing with people who need to spend more time minding their own business.

Matthew the point being is that they are like you and me , some are good people and some are just assholes and if they stop me and they are assholes , I would never show any disrespect. It's a very hard job no one is disputing that ! it is just that most of them are Assholes. It sounds like your a police officer or ex police officer. I'm sorry for getting you all worked up.

In response to Chuck's comment 'and im sick of the narrator thats clearly never even spoken to anyone with a boston accent tryin to drop his r's just talk like yourself' - The narrator is Donnie Wahlberg, who was born and raised in Dorchester, MA. Have you ever actually heard anyone from Boston speak?!?
