It's a show that's going to start as a procedural, but that isn't automatically a show-stopper for me. It might not stay that way. And even if it does, if the individual episodes are awesome I won't mind. It'll just have a shorter lifespan, because in a pure procedural the good ideas run out pretty quickly.
