‘The Good Cop’ Review: Josh Groban Isn’t a Bad Cop or a Bad Actor, But He’s a Huge Problem in This Bland Netflix Comedy

‘The Good Cop’ Review: Josh Groban Isn’t a Bad Cop or a Bad Actor, But He’s a Huge Problem in This Bland Netflix Comedy
Tony Danza and Josh Groban’s good cop/bad cop routine is busted, but not for the reasons you might think. For one, Danza is great as the corrupt detective kicked off the force in very public fashion. His Tony Sr. is a joke-teller, barroom crooner, and all-around man of the people; the kind of lovable wiseguy you would immediately forgive for any well-intentioned indiscretions… unless, that is, he’s your father. Tony Jr., or Tj (Groban), is the exact opposite of his dear ol’ dad — not that he’s unlovable; he just follows every rule, from specific points within the police code (he often cites others for “infractions”) to the implied but oft-violated social agreements like refusing to pick up an unclaimed quarter.

One guy is a beloved bad cop, the other is an ostracized good one. The odd couple setup is obvious, simple, and certainly solid enough to carry a crime-of-the-week procedural — or,

Exclusive: Listen to two tracks by composer Pat Irwin from Netflix’s The Good Cop

Netflix’s new drama The Good Cop doesn’t premiere until Friday, but we have a special sneak peek of the show’s score by composer Pat Irwin.

More than likely you have heard Irwin’s distinctive work as he was a member of the popular new wave band The B-52’s from 1989-2008 and has composed hit shows such as Nick’s Rocko’s Modern Life & Pepper Ann, Showtime’s Nurse Jackie and HBO’s Bored to Death to name a few.

The Good Cop follows Big Tony (Tony Danza), a lovable yet not exactly honorable, former NYPD officer who never followed the rules. He lives with his son, Tony Jr. (Josh Groban), a brilliant, straight-laced NYPD detective who makes it a point to always follow the rules while solving Brooklyn’s toughest cases.

This “odd couple” becomes unofficial partners as Tony Sr. offers his overly-cautious son blunt, street-wise advice.

TV Review: Netflix’s ‘The Good Cop’

  • Variety
Netflix’s new series “The Good Cop” proves, once again, the streamer’s ambition to compete on every conceivable turf. Set to be released the same day as their shimmering prestige play “Maniac,” “The Good Cop” is a show that aims for as broad an audience as possible—and in the process ends up becoming a show that it’s hard to imagine anyone calling their favorite. A show with frustratingly little on its mind, “The Good Cop” quickly establishes its two leads as familiar personality types and then reiterates who they are, over and over, for ten episodes, with little modulation or development.

Worse, for a show that sets up and solves a new mystery every episode, the show relies on the utter lack of intelligence of both its two leads and everyone around them. The good cop of the title is Tony Caruso Jr., played by Josh Groban

Top Gun 2 Gets Delayed by Almost a Year

Top Gun 2: Maverick is going to take a little bit longer to complete than previously thought. Paramount announced today that they are pushing the sequel back from July of 2019 to June of 2020.

The studio cites "extensive visual effects work and complicated flight scenes" as the reasoning for the 11 month delay of the film. The studio did not provide any other details on the nature of the production delay.

News of the Top Gun 2 delay comes a week after it was announced that Jon Hamm and Ed Harris had been added to the cast. It isn't clear who Hamm and Harris will be playing in the sequel, but they bring in some pretty big star power to a movie that was already packed with great actors.
