My wife and I tuned in to this show simply because we like Tim Daly and miss Wings immensely. So we thought, why not, let's give this show a chance.
We do not regret taking this chance in the slightest. It's hip, hysterically funny, well written, and action packed. Sounds like a lot to fit in an hour-long show, but they do it.
Tim Daly is great. He's a far cry from his restrained Joe Hackett character on Wings. Very dry wit and sarcastic. I can only compare him to Danny Ocean (George Clooney). Rick Worthy is great as Daly's more ethical other half. He reminds me of Sidney Poitier's character in Sneakers. Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon is also very good.
The other really nice thing about the show is that they have their character title screens aired each episode so you are always reminded who each person is. This allows you to pick up on the show quite easily even if you missed some of the earlier episodes.
The show has an Ocean's 11 feel to it in the filming and editing. Can't explain it any better than that.
Just give it a chance. I'm sure you'll enjoy it.
