99 Words About … The return of TV legend Steven Bochco

Well, it’s certainly better than “Raising the Bar.”

That drama, mostly remembered for Mark-Paul Gosselaar’s floppy hair, had been TV legend Steven Bochco’s (“Hill Street Blues,” “NYPD Blue”) most recent creation.

He fares much better with “Murder in the First” (10 p.m. Monday, TNT), in which homicide detectives (Taye Diggs, Kathleen Robertson) spend all season investigating two murders tied to a billionaire tech genius (Tom Felton) who says things like, “the three-axis gyroscope makes the proximity modules just pop.” Yeah, it feels a lot like Bochco’s 1995-97 drama “Murder One.” But it’s still pretty good, in a hey-it’s-summer-and-I-don’t-have-much-cable way.
