The Protector

Considering the flood of cop procedural shows on television, I can’t say that I was particularly excited about one more. Plus I didn’t have high hopes for a Lifetime cop series.

Ally Walker plays Gina Shephard a police officer and single mother of two. (Plus pseudo-mom to her slacker brother.) She’s quick-witted, a bit confident/arrogant (in a way that’s usually reserved for men on television), and has a bit of a snarky-sarcastic streak.

If not for Ally Walker, the show would probably be pretty dull. But like Sarah Shahi in Fairly Legal, she adds something to a show that would otherwise be boring and predictable. While it isn’t particularly unique or exciting, it does have a sort of charm that makes it enjoyable despite its lack of innovation.
