A not funny cop drama
24 August 2012 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

I hadn't heard of this programme previously and thought I'd give it a try. It's billed as 'comedy' but really when script writers and actors try too hard to be funny it shows, and the results are, well, not funny.

The actor who plays Jack can't deliver 'funny' lines. He has an awful transatlantic drawl that is annoying (maybe it's supposed to be??). The episode I watched had a storyline with the TV cooks' murders, and the character of Jack trying hard to be funny was so badly acted I nearly laughed; "your name is Sue, you made Sue-ffle, and you are a Sue-chef" -geddit?. Not even bad enough to groan at. He mumbles comments under his breathe at a bereaved husband and his side-kick hits him - badly, badly acted. He smashes his car into another and the young attractive female driver gives him her phone number. Dream on. The woman playing the female detective is wasted in this programme. I couldn't help watch this, just not believing what I was seeing but in the end had to switch it off - feeling pretty 'vexed' (geddit?) at yet another new programme on TV turning out to be awful. Instead of this rubbish can't the BBC bring back Zen the police programme set in Italy.
