Ironside stars Blair Underwood as a cop in a wheelchair. This might sound like a fake show they'd watch in another show (like Night Boat, the Knight Rider ripoff adored by the Simpsons), until you find out it's actually a remake of a detective show starring Raymond Burr that also ran on NBC from 1967 to 1975.
While there was some controversy over casting the able-bodied Underwood as the paraplegic detective Robert T. Ironside, the pilot does use some flashbacks to before his injury, to show that his tough-guy, whatever-it-takes policing strategy hasn't changed much in the two years he's been confined to his wheelchair. The scene that shows Ironside being shot is the most suspenseful, dramatic part of the pilot--even though you know it's coming and I haven't spoiled anything by telling you it happens--and Underwood acts it well. The good-looking team of plainclothes police around him shines too, especially Pablo Schreiber (who also played Nick Sobotka from The Wire and Pornstache in Orange Is the New Black) as the loose cannon Virgil. Sprinkled liberally with overemotional speeches, the pilot makes Ironside seem like just another police show--but it could be a good one.
