Copper: Episode 2 Holds Up


            The second episode of a promising new show has a lot to live up to.  If it loses the momentum and spark of the first episode, it often loses it's audience.  However, BBC drama Copper's second episode more than lives up to the show's initial promise of a riveting character/cop/period piece set in New York's chaos in the 1860's.  By the end of the episode, I was grinning over the clever trick Detective Kevin Cocoran played to serve brutal justice to a slimy character.   Cocoran has charisma and danger to spare.  With a missing wife and a dead daughter, Cocoran's personality and need for his version of justice drives the show.  I for one, will be returning to the series every week to see the mysteries and conflicts of 5 Points through the eyes of it's violent, clever detective.  Watch it, and keep a very interesting new show on the air.
