Hi. You were here last week, right?

You need to talk to Sheri. I don't do girls.
What? Uh, me neither. But I have $1000 chip that's yours if you can tell me the story on the player who got ripped off last week.

This Tim Daly led drama is a very nice surprise. It has a CSI classy and glossy feel to it with a touch of humor like that found in something written by David E Kelly.
If someone steals $100 from you, call the police. If they steal $100,000, call the FBI. But if you're the CEO of a Fortune 500 company and your chief financial officer embezzles $100 million on your watch, call Judd Risk Management. Harlan and his employees, including A.J Langer who plays over-educated secretary Meg, Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon playing super Private Investigator Nora Gage and Laura Leighton as sly and very ultra slick lawyer Leslie Town, all operate on the fringes of the law, to obtain the necessary outcome.
"Eyes" walks a fine line between sharp wit and fairly dark plot elements, and succeeds for the most part in making that tension in the script feel complex rather than clunky. Judd himself is engaging and strange, and Daly pulls off some very clever dialogue with abundant charm. He's well supported by the rest of the cast, including Laura Leighton who has finally left her well-known Melrose Place after-ego behind and A.J. Langer, who hasn't lost a step since "My So-Called Life."
Eyes is witty and very sharp and if it obtains the target audience (i'm thinking CSI, Crossing Jordan and Law and order) it will do very very well.
With ABC already having 2 break-out hits on their hands (Desperate Housewives and Lost), i'm sure they'll try for the tri-fecta with this one.
