    As a New Yorker, I can tell you that we don't have a SWAT Team, but rather an Emergency Services Unit or ESU

    I found it very off-putting, too. Although Flack's my favorite character, I hate seeing him in implausible situations--it throws me right out of the story.

    It might just be that the producers, who are already paying the actor Eddie Cahill to appear on the show, are too cheap to cast another actor for the guest role.

    ^I think you hit the nail on the head. ;)

    Plus, after Flack got that call from Danny, he certainly wasn't going to sit back and let someone else rescue the hostages. I think Flack likes being front and center.

    Not sure about the drug bust, though. Dynamo's theory works for me.

    Yeah, why pay an actor and then bring in lots of bit part actors?

    plus if we didn't have a regular detective (who manages to be a one man band) think of all the great banter and one liners we would have missed out on.

    Plus the fab chemistry between THE NYPD detective and a certain CSI... *cough* Danny *cough*.

    Basically, no Flack (if he were real - i know that fact makes me sad too) wouldn't do all those roles, but it would be criminal if Eddie Cahill as Flack didn't get all the screen time he does (personally i think he should get a little more - but that is just me :p!). So artistic licence is very much required for his role and i'm not goign to complain. Think of all the other things TPTB expect us to believe, like chemistry between to leads... :D

    There seems to be no limit to the "artsitic license" for TPTB. :eek:

    SuperFlack and RamboStella, could have their own tv series together. What do you think? :D

    Super Flack and Rambo Stella- thats awesome! they best not work to hard though or the'll be no crime left. They could get us world peace though.

    I think we have all just found the reason Superflack doesnt have a girl, the poor guy has no energy or time hes superflack doing 20 jobs for NYPD and has no time for a girlfriend- shame!
