Lifetime Goes with Another Cop Drama in "Against the Wall"

After CBS's success with "Blue Bloods", Lifetime is trying it's hand at the cop family drama. Abbie Kowalski (Rachael Carpani) just made detective. The problem is that the only opening was in the internal affairs department. Not the place to be when you have three brothers on patrol and a dad that's retired from the force. Treat Williams and Kathy Baker play Kowalski parents Don and Sheila.

In the first episode, Abbie reports to her new post and meets her very pregnant partner Lina, played by Marisa Ramirez. You might remember her as evil bitch Gia on "General Hospital" if you were addicted in high school like I was. Big surprise, Abbie gets her first threat on the job. Right off the bat she realizes, telling her family isn't going to be the hardest part.

There's a guy, of course, but it's not the one she's making booty calls to. Exactly what all the ladies watching Lifetime tune in to see. Abbie's got a lot to deal with, but not sure I want to watch. It's a bit Lifetime-y and melodramatic for me, but it is a good companion to "The Protector" if you like that. I will say that they've got a good music supervisor. We'll have to wait and see if it makes it with only 1.8 million views for the debut. If you're a Lifetime fan, you'll probably like this series. Let me know if it gets better
