Something surprisingly brilliant
19 January 2016 | by zuma-31506See all my reviews

Remember those movies like "Top Secret" and "Airplane", where you actually had to pause sometimes to catch all the jokes that were thrown at you from the screen? Well, "Angie Tribeca" is a proud follower of this tradition.

This show is a little like the American version of "A touch of cloth", which aired in 2012 in Britain and made fun of British police procedural series. "Angie Tribeca" here, correspondingly, is an absurd parody of the stereotypical American detective shows, and is probably a bit lighter in the mood than "A touch of cloth".

Rashida Jones plays a detective who represents every possible cliché: she's a tough cookie, a lone-wolf, who hates team-work yet somehow develops feelings for her newly assigned manly hot-headed partner, she talks exclusively with phrases out of typical cop shows, and strangers compliment her on her appearance saying it's a pity she wastes it working as a detective. Together Tribeca and her partner keep their city safe, dealing with very silly cases in a lot of very silly ways.

The cast don't shine with charisma, but they are reasonably pleasant to look at, especially Rashida Jones, whose features are not just beautiful in the usual sense, but also lively and interesting, which is a very good thing for a comedy. And of course there's the dazzling smile some of you might remember from "Parks and Recreation". As for the others, they perfectly fulfil their main task, - which is to parody the stereotypical characters from cop shows.

If you've seen at least one show like "Bones" or "Castle" or "CSI" or "Law and Order" or - you name it! - give "Angie Tribeca" a try.

P.S. A piece of advice: if you watch it, don't be lazy. This isn't one of those shows you can watch while cleaning the house, throwing a glance at the TV now and then. Catch every frame, look at every street sign, because jokes are hiding everywhere.
