A bit of alright.
27 November 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This isn't discovery channel. It's about as believable as thinking that CSIs interrogate witnesses. If you want thought out dialogue and plot, watch HBO's Rome or BSG. There isn't much that's meaningful here, but who in hell would look for it anyway? I'm rather surprised to see the vehemence with which people are denying the quality of this show. What did you expect, NOVA? This is a buddy cop drama. Sure, it has some laughably contrived moments (serendipity seems to follow Matt Bomer around like an overly affectionate puppy), but it's all in good fun. Mostly, I think the writers are simply attempting to show what a charmed life Bomer lives in comparison to his working stiff Fed partner-- perhaps to a fault. These moments faded quickly after the basis was set-up (but aren't many pilots like that?).

I was equally surprised to see someone unhappy with Tim Dekay's performance. Call it girlish bias, but I adore the man, and he brings to the character a certain... humanity. It was nice to see that they didn't fall into the smart guy/dumb guy routine: Dekay's Fed character starts out smart as a whip, and he stays that way, matching the hilariously cultured and talented con-man step-for-step. And it was a pleasant discovery, to find genuine chemistry between many of the characters. The writing isn't bad (it's not Monty Python or even SG1, but it's funny), even if the plots are mostly forgettable.

That said, I'm following this series quite happily (and cursing Canada for being so slow in releasing episodes), mostly because it's silly and the music is wonderfully campy in a "haha, look, it's buddy-cop music, get it?" sort of way and Tim Dekay is hot. Because sometimes television doesn't have to be done perfectly to be a good watch.

It seems to me that it's a "love it or you don't" scenario, though I find the petty name-calling in certain reviews amusing in the extreme.
