WILL TRENT is a new, fresh, smart cop show. It is all about the distinct, instinctive powers the Special Agent from Georgia’s Bureau of Investigation possesses. He can “read a crime scene like a book.”
WILL TRENT is a popular and familiar crime-solving mystery book series written by Karin Slaughter. Ramon Rodriguez portrays Will, who always wears a gray three-piece suit and pocket hankie neatly tucked in place. He is a bold, in-your-face kind of guy. He is quiet, tough, and cordial unless “trash can” is mentioned. Will is a flawed man who has the most solved cases in the Bureau, yet his youth still haunts him today.
The first episode introduced a strong ensemble featuring Erika Christensen from PARENTHOOD days. The writers are not solving the crimes within one installment. This is a nice change from usual police shows, and it even features an adorable chihuahua. WILL TRENT offers a different viewpoint with quick dialogue and action.
WILL TRENT arrives at the scene with a huge following. Let’s hope the writers and actors continue this entertaining drama.
It is available to stream on ABC Television.
