“Brenham’s fast-paced police drama juggles a number of narrative lines and disparate characters . . . The entire cast of characters—good and evil—is well-constructed and realistic, while the action-packed ending grows organically out of their varied personalities. So too does the emotional ending, which chooses intelligence over sentimentality. A gripping, fast-moving and emotionally charged drama centered on well-drawn characters with genuine motives.”
