Whew! This is truly the stuff of which gripping police procedurals are made.
Kyra Sedgwick's hit police drama returned to television this week for a third season, easily cajoling its way its way up to number one in its time slot. That's no new achievement for the show, which has consistently drawn raves from audiences and reviewers alike
