There Will Be No Assault on Precinct 17

That’s because 17th Precinct, the new cop show from Battlestar Galactica remaker/Caprica creator Ron Moore and starring a bunch of BSG folks, was not picked up. This is probably because 17th Precinct was a cop show set in a world of magic, and NBC’s network execs couldn’t wrap their tiny heads around such a high-falutin’ concept (note: it’s not really a high-falutin’ concept, NBC is just dumb). On the plus side, the pilot has finally made its way to the webberwebs and is available for viewing above. I haven’t watched it all yet — it’s 43 minutes long — but TR contributor Matt Catania says it’s excellent and I’m inclined to believe him. Enjoy.
