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.

The Good Guys are Great Guys!
19 May 2010 | by caddy_shack2009See all my reviews

Finally, a new show worth watching, Colin Hanks is (Jack) a younger cop looking to further his career who is a by the book cop and Bradley Whitford is (Dan) a veteran, and a wild card with a love of women, and of course a drinking problem. This show is great it reminds me of the classic buddy cop comedies which I believe is what the creator was going for considering this was suppose to be a movie written 10 years ago. It's got action and comedy, and great acting. If you're tired of CSI, NCIS and all the other serious crime cop shows then check this out, I promise you won't be disappointed! FOX has finally pulled of a great cop show, there only other claim to fame series now are "Glee" and "Family Guy", hopefully this will be another.
