Since I have been in lazy mode these last few weeks of pregnancy, I have rekindled my relationship with Netflix. There was a period where they lost the rights to one of the shows I had been half way through and I gave them the silent treatment. That moody phase has disintegrated and I've since found some shows that I not only like, I fell deeply in love with.
Yes, deeply. Maybe because the main actor was a steamy dreamboat of hotness or maybe because it was actually a well written and well done show. Okay, a mix of all of those things. Today, I want to introduce you to Copper.
Tom Weston-Jones (steamy dreamboat of hotness) plays the main character, an Irish immigrant, Detective Kevin (Corky) Corcoran.
This man is on fire!! I loved him in "As the World Ends" (also on Netflix). Seeing him as a ruthless copper in 1860's New York put me in swoon overdrive.
Kevin is on a mission. He not only wants to crack down on crime in Five Points, New York, he also wants to solve a mystery very close to his heart. His wife's gone missing and his little girl was murdered.
If you like CSI or Criminal Minds, you will love this. It's an 1860's version that blew my mind away. The characters are colorful and exciting. The setting is rugged and believable. The mix of drama and crime solving is a perfect blend. Seriously, you don't want to miss this one! Copper is currently airing it's second season on BBC America (which much to my displeasure we do not have here in California). Luckily the whole first season is available to stream on Netflix. Honestly, it's so good I might watch it again. (Mainly to stare and drool over Tom Weston-Jones). Hey, at least I am being "real" with you guys! I'll already know what happens so I can just concentrate on the eye candy this time around.
If you love history and crime shows, you can't go wrong with this gem!
