It is like House, Jessica Fletcher and Columbo had a cranky lovechild
30 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It is like House, Jessica Fletcher and Columbo had a cranky lovechild, I am not easily caught by detective dramas, but oh my Dwight joined the police and I am loving the ride.

Well besides I want his boss to go ahead and say "Allstate" in every sentence, Wilson not only deliver his character Everett Backstrom no he completely blow it out of the ballpark then yank it back for another blow, I can recommend this for any Columbo/Fletcher fan.

I am just afraid it is not going to satisfy the network and they cancel it, it has a huge mark on it's back and me not likey that.

Watch Watch Watch then Watch again I already watched the first 2 epicsodes twice.
