The new show "Ironside" is scheduled to appear on NBC October 2, 2013. But you can watch the pilot episode now, before the show appears on television at Hulu.com (pilot link here) - which was just uploaded September 9, 2013. They say you can't keep a good man down and this show proves that saying and then some.
This show is not new, in fact, in the original "Ironside" aired on NBC from 1967 to 1975 and starred Raymond Burr. The new series (a remake of the 1060s crime drama) will premiere Wednesday October 2, 2013 after Law and Order: SVU. Blair Underwood stars as the parapalegic homicide detective Robert Ironside - which caused some stir since the actor is not confined to a wheelchair in real life, but after watching the pilot you will see that the flashbacks of when he had the full use of his legs and how he a gun shot took away the use of his legs is an important part of the story.
Despite the stir the casting choice created, the show has it's highs and lows. You have a homicide detective that is willing to break a few rules to get the job done and a team that seems fairly loyal to him. Check out the show and feel free to leave a comment below with your thoughts.
