Television shows that center around members of the police department trying to solve crimes have been around since the beginning of television. The question is, does the new show stand out from the pack or is it just another police procedural?
The InBetween premiered on NBC last night. Cassie Bishop (Harriet Dyer) has a unique gift: she can communicate with the dead. Her foster father, Detective Tom Hackett (Paul Blackthorne) turns to Cassie when conventional police methods are useless in solving the most difficult of cases. But his new partner, Damien Asante (Justin Cornwell) is not so sure that Cassie’s abilities will help them to find the perpetrator.
As police procedurals go, The InBetween is certainly unique due to the spiritual aspect of the show’s narrative. It was not the most thrilling of television programs, but at the same time, I did not have the urge to change the channel.
Do I recommend it? Maybe.
The InBetween airs on NBC on Wednesday night at 10PM.
