    I was kind of prepared for this being a let down. Middle aged, middle class amateur sleuthing is only cute to middle aged viewers.* The best I thought I could hope for was something like Death In Paradise/No 1 Ladies Detective Agency but with lots of f-bombs and nice NYC locations Turns out that it works well in a number of ways. It is sometimes a parody of detective shows but it is just near enough to "authentic" too. What's most important though, at least to me, is that the laughs come fairly regularly. And they are often pretty big. Sure it's meta too, if you like that. But no too meta for those that don't.

    Can't wait for the next series.

    (*Maybe I'm just getting old! :eek:)

    I watched the first 20 minutes, what is so good about this show? the beginning to me was sort of boring. I'm trying to return to it but the hype got me a bit disappointed...

    I felt the same way at first, but after Red light green light it got good.
    Also i think subtitles are way better than dubbed. I think that makes a difference.

    I've been bringing the Icelandic crime drama Trapped on Netflix, and it's a great show. Very quaint and frequently down beat, but quality acting and a strong, if a bit convoluted plot in both seasons. I hope they'll make more of this :)

    I highly recommend this for drama lovers.

    Started watching this after reading this post. There was a morbid curiosity on my part to see how Selena Gomez would work with Martin and Short. A few episodes in now, I like it. It's definitely "boomer" comedy and often doesn't land for me, but it's an easy watch, After hammering myself with a lot of difficult TV/film over the past few weeks, this is a great change of pace.

    the dead beat father angle really turned me off but they say it gets better so when I get some time I'll watch it.

    He wants to be a good father. But his gambling gets in the way. His main motivation throughout was to become the dad he wanted to be. At the end, he found perhaps a higher purpose.

    The Wheel of Time. I am surprised how much I LOVED the first three episodes, they did much better than I expected. They made me cry three times. The cast is spot on and so far I didn't mind the changes. I liked the music already, but hearing it incorporated in the show makes it really shine. When the third episode ended I wanted to scream: WHERE IS THE REST?!

    Wheel of Time on Amazon Prime and Cowboy Bebop on Netflix both are pretty good shows but for some reason my expectations had to be tempered because the source material for me is superior. Novels are at times better than film/tv show or visa versa... Looking forward to Hawkeye on Disney+ on Wednesday which is also comic book day at your local comic shop. Support your LCS!!!
