Watch The Glades

With a number of stellar reviews and a steadily growing audience, The Glades is quietly becoming one of the most popular programs on cable television. Airing on A&E, the show has broken records for viewership of an original drama on the network, and it has become a staple of the cable channel's lineup. The program is described as a police procedural, but it differs in many ways from many of the popular procedural shows that currently air on television. With its engaging cast and excellent writing, The Glades will likely continue to be a major part of the A&E lineup for several more seasons.

The Glades stars Matt Passmore as a Chicago detective who was accused of sleeping with his captain's wife. Though the accusations are false, Passmore's character, Detective Jim Longworth, must make some major changes to his life to escape his unfortunate situation. As a result, he takes a job with a Florida law enforcement agency in order to get away from his former life and its problems. Though the detective believes that his new location and job will give him time to relax and reflect, he quickly finds that his new environment will offer a whole new set of problems and complications. As it turns out, there is a great deal of crime in southeastern Florida, but Longworth is skilled at solving cases, making him a valuable addition to the law enforcement team.

The Glades also stars Kiele Sanchez as Callie Cargill, with whom Longworth develops some romantic chemistry. She is a busy registered nurse and single mother who is not immediately drawn to Longworth's charms. However, she is intrigued by the new lawman, and the romantic tension between the two characters drives much of the human drama of the show. Carlos Gomez is also featured on the program as Dr. Carlos Sanchez. He is a friend of Longworth's and he is often put into compromising positions as a result of his attempts to help Longworth solve cases.

The Glades has recently entered into its third season on A&E, and ratings continue to be quite impressive for the show. Millions of people tune in each week to see the beautiful Florida landscape while enjoying the performances of the cast in some of television's best-written roles. Although the show has been compared to a number of other police procedurals, The Glades has a unique charm and vibe that cannot be found in any other program.
