Edward Burns is great on the strictly average Public Morals

The ‘60s-set TNT cop drama isn’t Mad Men in its attention to detail, says Pilot Viruet, “but Burns has a lot of fun with his fast-talking crew, peppering the dialogue with phrases like “doll face” and filling scenes with the loud clacking of a typewriter. While Public Morals doesn’t rise to the level of greatness, it has the potential to get there by the end of the season. In the meantime, this promising new show is thoroughly watchable, always entertaining, and sometimes quite good.” PLUS: It’s picaresque, briskly written and quickly captivating, Ed Burns is perfect for this era, and it presents everything you’ve seen before in a crime drama.
