The Commish is Tony Scali (Michael Chiklis) who loves his wife and son dearly. He is not glamorous; he’s balding and heavy-set. But he’s smart in dealing with the city politics, tough with the villains, and tender with the victims of crimes.
It’s kind of like a male version of career versus family, except that his sense of justice and honor also gets thrown in the mix.
Michael Chiklis is better known for his award winning role in The Shield. But if you ever wanted to see a gentler side to the actor, this is the ticket.
This is an older series and it shows in visual quality but I deeply enjoyed season one because of the good work done by all the actors.
