Trivia

One of its working titles of "Code 58" was based on old Dallas Police radio code for routine investigations before the department switched to plain-English radio communications. See more »

Goofs

Establishing shots of the precinct identify it as being the Southeast substation in the 17000 block of Commerce Street in Dallas, which actually ends in the 3400s. Further, Commerce Street falls within the Dallas PD's Central division, which is headquartered two blocks north of Commerce Street on Hall Street, while the Southeast division is headquartered several miles away on Jim Miller Road.

Excellent Potential
23 May 2010 | by (North Dakota, USA) – See all my reviews

Based on this program's pilot episode, I will plan to keep tuning in to see if an already strong ensemble continues to gel and the convoluted comic antics continue to make me laugh out loud. *Burn Notice* creator Matt Nix and company have managed to pull off the parody of the buddy cop show without making the characters seem idiotic or the crimes they find themselves in the middle of seem irrelevant. Good plotting, good narrative, good characters. It's the Burn Notice formula (with a less driven Michael-like character, an even funnier Sam stand-in, and a Fiona-like foil in the guise of the boss) applied to the Dallas Police Department (which is, in itself, a nice change of locale and a potential mine of comic gold). This has the potential to be one of the great buddy cop movies (48 HRS, Beverly Hills Cop, Lethal Weapon, etc.) transferred to the small screen and made to fit just right. It is a pilot, so it's potential could either fizzle or be fulfilled, but as a stand-alone program, I feel it deserves 8/10, which means it's an excellent pilot. Once the series hits the streets, I'll adjust my rating upward or downward accordingly.
