killer instinct: really guilty pleasure
9 October 2005 | by mercutio_41See all my reviews

OK, OK. So every bad thing everyone has written about this show is true. Stock characters, gruesome murders, etc. Criminal Minds treats the same subject with more class and intelligence. But you know what? Still want to watch it. Can't help myself. I know it's bad, conclusions are reached too easily, cops don't dress this well, the boss is so gruffly lovable, blah, blah, blah. I still have a season pass on the tivo. Messner is great. Not many people can pull off such a two dimensional character and make it fun. Can he act? Who knows? Will I weep when it gets canceled? Probably not. But til then, pass the popcorn!
