    An FBI agent with uncouth yet effective tactics is played by Patrick Swayze on A&E's The Beast. Charles Barker (Swayze) trains new partner Ellis Dove (Travis Fimmel). Baker imparts his hard-driving and slick methods even while an internal affairs squad is investigating him.

    The troublemaker veteran makes his new partner sweat as they work undercover, using clever manipulation to continually test Dove and drive him deeper into the "roles" they play on each case.

    Dove struggles to do the job the way he's being taught while facing pressure to spy on his veteran partner to support the internal affairs investigation.
    Just an amazing show. I've been keeping up with it since it's premiere and it just keeps getting better, is anyone else watching this?

    Isn't this the same premise as "The Corruptor" with Chow Yun Fat and Mark Wahlberg?

    For God will not permit that we shall know what is to come... those who by some sorcery or by some dream might come to pierce the veil that lies so darkly over all that is before them may serve by just that vision to cause that God should wrench the world from its heading and set it upon another course altogether and then where stands the sorcerer? Where the dreamer and his dream?

    I watched the first episode a while ago, and I liked it... felt like a Training Day type of show. Haven't watched more of it, maybe later on... haven't really been motivated to continue it at the moment, but surely it has some good things going for it.

    Just finished watching the last episode. Ok show, didn't like it that much at the start but I thought it got much better towards the end. That might just be because I watched the first episodes in one week intervals but the last episodes back to back though.
