Storyline

A heist gone wrong. A gunman with an AK-47. Three officers trapped without ammo. His partner frozen in fear, Detective Jim Dunbar without hesitation took action of intense bravery that killed the gunman, saved the officers and made him a hero. He also took a bullet that blinded him forever. Most officers injured in the line of duty opt for desk jobs or early retirement. Not Dunbar. He's rehabilitated both body and attitude and fought his way back to active duty. His fresh start at a new precinct is threatened by the simple truth that no one really wants him there. His new partner, Karen Bettencourt, doesn't trust that she can rely on him. However, being blind makes Dunbar a better cop than he ever has been. Steven Bochco's drama stars Ron Eldard (frequent guest star of ER (1994) as Dunbar, who tackles the issue of handicapped employees head-on. Unique visual effects give us a window on what Dunbar "sees" with his remaining senses, as he learns to be a better cop and a better man. He ... Written by Anonymous

Trivia

In 2003, Steven Bochco, the writer/producer of "Blind Justice," wrote a mystery novel called "Death by Hollywood". In it, the main character shows a friend of his a short story that he wrote about a guy who gets telepathic messages from his dog for movie and TV show ideas, and one of them was about a detective who gets blinded in the line of duty and goes back to the force with a guide dog. Steven Bochco decided to use that idea for this TV series. See more »

"Blind Justice" : Give us more!
4 January 2006 | by etwan-2See all my reviews

I'm loving "Blind Justice" which has so far run for 4 episodes in Australia. Ron Eldard's acting is superb - his range of emotions is gut wrenching and I look forward to seeing more character development as the series continues. However, some aspects of the story line defy belief. In the first episode shown here, Jim is knocked off his feet while crossing the road and his dog Hank rushes off leaving him stranded: I'm sure a trained guide dog would not do this. Labradors have been used as guide dogs for many years in Australia because they are more stable in their personality - are German Shepherds still used in the U.S.? In "Seoul Man" the "perp" had been dishonorably discharged from the Army during the Korean War. This ran from 1950 - 53 so the serial killer would have to be at least 60 plus, but was played by an actor obviously in his late 30's or 40's. This makes me wonder if the series is set during an earlier time frame - say the 1960's? More attention to these types of inconsistencies would have made the show tighter and more convincing but I look forward to seeing all episodes here. We want a second season please.
