Fall 2017 TV: Police Procedurals - SWAT, Wisdom of the Crowd

While I found the trailer for SWAT to be trying too hard, there are reviews that find it to be a solid effort and showrunners with good track records to make it a decent show. On the other hand,¬†reviews for¬†Wisdom of the Crowd, appear to have the same issues I did with thinking that crowdsourcing as a viable way to track potential suspects is wrong on many levels. This show thinks it is a good idea to invade everyone’s privacy and police by mob rule. Ick.

    SWAT seems like I would enjoy it so I’ll probably check it out.
    Wisdom of the Crowd seems disturbing so I’m gonna skip
