Great Show
14 May 2012 | by See all my reviews

I thought it was refreshing. The pilot started a little slow but gain entertainment value. Give it a chance. It's characters relationship are much like real life couples whether their friends or intimate males and females. They're crazy and remember it's just a show not a serious dramatic TV show like Law & Order. It's meant to be what it is; funny, goofy at times, but overall entertaining. The fact that some reviews dislike the unrealistic scenario when the dog sniffs the heroin in the fish tank are taking the show too serious or too scientific. While other shows are based on the trendy CSI scientific approach to solve homicide cases are still intriguing and worthy of quality show production, it's refreshing to have a balance. A funny detective show like Common Law is just what I enjoyed about the overall options of shows viewers can choose.
