Winnipeg Free Press - ONLINE EDITION
N.C.S.I.S.N.Y.P.D. (aka The Procedural)
The fringe show with the most letters in its title pays goofy tribute to TV’s procedural crime dramas.
A serial killer is on the loose, and tough-talking detective Harry Sullivan and nerdy sidekick Bruce Shepherd are on the case, supervised by Capt. T. Neal. Enter Nancy Williams, a ratings-hungry reporter, and forensics expert Elizabeth “Liz” Neal, who is in love with more than her job.
The tongue-in-cheek comedy has some great lines — mostly coming from bespectacled, clown-phobic Shepherd — while never taking itself too seriously. The quickly moving plot includes campy gags and musical stings, with cue cards keeping the action moving. But unless you’re an avid crime-show devotee, its stock characters and dialogue may just fly over your head with many of its in-jokes DOA.
