My Thoughts

The main character Eddie is a real jerk. Part of what I like about him is that he doesn’t pull any punches and won’t take bullshit from anyone.

I do think that there is a lot that could be done to make him nicer but then fact is i like him the way that he is.

The story is very interesting and what i really like is that it is not normal. I think the crime scene investigations is not a common event that I have seen. I think that’s why I keep liking this series as it shows a side that isn’t always shown.
