While federal agencies have resident agents in local police departments, the agents perform the tasks of the agencies- such as Secret Service for counterfeiting cases. The FBI does not investigate homicides unless they are of a significant nature, such as a serial killer or murder for hire. See more »
The pilot shows a lot of promise. There are 2 likable leads and a good mix of unexpected comedy. A big city FBI agent played by Josh Duhamel who seems to do all the right things, joins a small town Michigan police department and partners with a slightly down trodden bitter detective there (Dean Winters). Sweet looking Aubrey Dollar has a supporting role. Janet McTeer seems a little out of place as Chief. It's funny to see the FBI technology and advances versus small town cop methods.
A couple of Breaking Bad references Vince Gilligan fans will notice. It feels more procedural and less intense.
Worth watching. High quality television.
