When Sam's ex-fiancé hires her and Eddie to track down his stolen laptop, Sam is mortified to discover that on it is an embarrassing sex video the two of them made before their breakup that now may ...
Rachel Bilson plays Sam Swift-an actress whose career is on the skids, but who has gone through rehab to sobriety.
Eddie Cibrian ("LeAnn & Eddie") plays Eddie Valetik-a P.I. who used to be a cop until he was burned in a police corruption case. He was the good guy.
Like many series before it, "Take Two" combines two disparate individuals-one a crime investigator, one something else-and uses the odd couple dynamic to produce comedy and crime solving. And like these other shows, "Take Two" relies heavily on the chemistry between its two main characters for entertainment.
Fortunately, the Bilson-Cibrian connection works well on screen. She is a perky-to-the-point-of-distraction enthusiast and he is a dispassionate veteran with a Ted Danson-like demeanor-the straight man to her comedic talents.
The cast expands to include some welcome additions, including sidekicks for each of the stars. All are interesting characters.
Just give the show a couple episodes to get rolling. It is worth it.
