This series seemed like it had promise. A flexible premise, a tongue in cheek sense of humor, and the ever-telegenic John Stamos at the helm. So what happened? I'd lay the blame with the show's direction. Both action and humor require exquisite pacing...yet scene after scene thuds along with no sense of momentum or energy. The pictures are framed nicely, the talents know their lines - and yet it seems no one behind the camera knows how to breathe life into a scene. A pity...and entirely unsurprising that the series died almost immediately. Here's hoping that Stamos, a genuinely appealing performer, can find talent behind the camera to match his own next time.
