Crossing Lines: Yet Another Mediocre Cop Drama

<I>Crossing Lines</I>: Yet Another Mediocre Cop Drama

After watching the two-hour pilot of this show, I've decided that I've seen enough of it to last me a lifetime. I was hoping for more as I really like William Fichtner (particularly his Prison Break stint) and Donald Sutherland. So while this show isn't really bad per se, it's just not at all compelling. I only watched the second half, thinking that this might be a slow-burn like The Killing, but it seems to boil down to a procedural (with a few ongoing personal vengeance storylines) that really lacks any spark. At times it reminded me of The Breakout Kings (except with law enforcement officials instead of cons), but without any sense of humor. Guess there's a reason it's premiering in the middle of summer with hardly any promotion leading up to it.

Five Great James Gandolfini Movie Roles

Five Great James Gandolfini Movie Roles

For obvious reasons, James Gandolfini's legacy will be forever tied to Tony Soprano. It's the role he played the longest and which left the deepest impact, both on viewers and within the industry at large. But the late actor, who died (too soon) of an apparent heart attack on Wednesday, had a gallery of memorable movie characters as well, particularly after The Sopranos transformed him from a struggling supporting player (he had small, but memorable turns in films like True Romance and Crimson Tide in the run-up to the 1999 debut of The Sopranos) into a sought-after character actor who appeared in a rich variety of films, from the sublime (Spike Jonze's lovely adaptation of Where the Wild Things Are) to the absurd (John Turturro's intriguing, but problematic musical Romance & Cigarettes). And even when the films themselves stank (Surviving Christmas anyone?) Gandolfini's mere presence made them less painful than they otherwise might have been. Here are five Gandolfini movie characters we'd place alongside his towering turn as a New Jersey don.
