"Suspicious?! The place should have a big ol' sign over it that says 'Crimey'!"
19 October 2012 | by (California) – See all my reviews

Written and directed by showrunner Matt Nix, "Supercops" examines the partnership between Jack Bailey and Dan Stark, as Bailey psyches himself up for an interview with the gung-ho Dallas PD Strike Force (leaving Stark feeling jilted).

Meanwhile, the two investigate the case of an abandoned truck that crashed through the wall of a falafel restaurant. Though the owners - two nasty Israeli bad guys - report nothing missing, their safe was burgled, and the truck guys made off with a stash of very high-priced diamonds. Dan insists the owners aren't on the level, while Jack dismisses the case as nothing worth pursuing.

Turns out Dan was right in a big way, and the credit for the big case goes to the glory-hogging Strike Force.

What's ingratiating about "Supercops" is Dan's cop instincts, despite the mounting evidence that he's bad for Jack's career. Everyone from the big bad Strike Force guy to Ruiz warns Jack about the detrimental effects Dan will have on Jack's career, but Dan ends up proved right in the end. What begins as a bickering relationship between two cops ends up being something larger and more interesting about the bond between partners.

On top of that, it's also a great Dan Stark episode, with Stark going from greasing himself up (to fit through a doggy door), to tangling with an uncooperative office computer, to speeding away and leaving Jack in the middle of the street after hearing about the Strike Force interview. It's also further evidence that Bradley Whitford was born to play this role.

9/10
