<i>Copper</i>: Back in the New York Groove

The most surprising thing about BBC America's heavily hyped, hugely ambitious first original scripted series, Copper -- which follows the exploits of a New York city detective who patrols the streets of Lower Manhattan circa 1864 -- isn't that 19th century police work was so different than it is today: it's that the cop show formula seems to remain the same, no matter the era. Brought to you by creative team responsible for the late, great police drama Homicide: Life on the Street (that would be Tom Fontana, who co-created the show, and Barry Levinson who is on board as the executive producer), Copper may take place in the past, but it mostly sticks to contemporary genre rules.
