Goofs

Establishing shots of the precinct identify it as being the Southeast substation in the 17000 block of Commerce Street in Dallas, which actually ends in the 3400s. Further, Commerce Street falls within the Dallas PD's Central division, which is headquartered two blocks north of Commerce Street on Hall Street, while the Southeast division is headquartered several miles away on Jim Miller Road.

A show that's just plain fun!
18 June 2010 | by mrsjones012See all my reviews

As other reviewers have stated; this is a classic buddy cop show. It's funny and well executed. Don't over think the irreverent subject matter and you will have a good time. Bradley Whitford plays "bad" cop Dan Stark so well he makes you want to smack him. Stark is sexist, stubborn, arrogant and of course, clueless. Colin Hanks character, Jack Bailey, just needs a hug. Bailey attempts to reign stark in but instead gets caught up in the crazy. It is a very funny dynamic that is played out well. It all comes together in a show that has a vintage feel with a pop-culture edge. Standard characters, written for today's audience. Each episode has gotten better so, with only three in, I'm looking forward to the next. It looks good visually too and it's cool to see a show NOT set in L.A.,NY, Chicago etc...
