A fine prime time action show, yet it's so terribly cliched!
10 July 2000 | by (Allentown, PA) – See all my reviews

After a brief departure from the world of television and

undergoing several movies, Sean Patrick Flanery is back on the

tube. His career as a TV star was a starring role in the

hour-long action series "The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles," on

who Flanery portrayed the whip-cracking hero as a young man.

Flanery's newest stint in television is the hour-long crime

drama known as "The Strip," named for the famed casino-based

area. Here, Flanery is an ex-cop named Elvis, who, along with

his smooth operator partner Jesse (played by Guy Torry, Joe

Torry's brother), go to work for casino owner Cameron Green (Joe

Viterelli) after losing their jobs in the Las Vegas PD. Elvis

and Jesse now work as safecrackers for Green, providing security

for his casino patrons and also working as private investigators

for the most part.

You might think that this show is practically a mix between

"Miami Vice" and "Vegas," because both the elements of a

buddy-cop combination and the steamy, greed-ridden backdrop of

Sin City is being used here. Those borrowed elements might annoy

a discriminating viewer, because with the use of too many

cliches in a show might be considered to be too unoriginal and

worst of all uncreative. Sean Patrick Flanery's brooding, macho

performance piece as Elvis might remind you of Don Johnson's

macho character from "Miami Vice," and Guy Torry's role as the

smoothie Jesse almost reflects of Phillip Michael Thomas' role

from "MV."

Though the cliches can bring a real fly to the windscreen for

"The Strip," the show's flashy backdrops, plus the rapid fire

pacing and action can make up for the over recycled material

used over and over and over again, for about the
