Fall 2017 TV: Police Procedurals

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.
