User Reviews

 
An interesting new take on the classic cop show.
11 September 2012 | by (British Columbia, BC) – See all my reviews

Though only the first few episodes are out, I find Common Law extremely enjoyable. It's basically your standard cop show, as shiny and quick-paced and quick-witted as most shows these days, but with an extra twist that adds a lot of character. The relationship between the two main characters is petty at times, but extremely entertaining more often than not and dynamic enough in its own way. The comedy elements are sharp and there a lot of well-thought-out details.

Basically, if you don't want to watch two grown men squabble for an hour, this show might not be for you. But if two attractive detectives with a complicated and, at times, a pseudo-homosexual relationship sounds like something you're into, you should definitely give Common Law a watch.
