The Beast

Patrick Swayze stars as Charles Barker, an F.B.I. agent who has an unorthodox style and is not above twisting the rules to get results. Barker is assigned a new partner by the F.B.I. and is being pressured to keep tabs on Barker and his behavior.

The gritty series is set in Chicago and delves into the dark side of the law and how the line between the good guys and drug kingpins can at times get blurred.

There has been a lot of press regarding the state of Swayze and his health but I find it best to keep that out of the show and instead focus on the dark drama of the series There is some uneven scripts and action, but the series looks poised to be the best law drama since The Shield.
