Did You Know?


Take Two has a principal character called Sam Swift (Rachel Bilson) and Sam Swift is also the name of a character in Doctor Who: The Woman Who Lived and Take Two's own Sam Swift saying in the first episode, "Have you met me?" and it was the same thing that O'Donnell said in Doctor Who: Before The Flood which is two episodes before The Woman Who Lived.

There is little evidence that all this is not coincidental.

This is because Take Two is created by Andrew W. Marlowe and Terri Edda Miller and Marlowe had earlier created Castle (2009-16) with Miller executive producer.

One of the Castle episodes that Marlowe and Miller had written together is 6.5 Time Will Tell which is about someone who claimed to be a time traveller and this episode included references to Doctor Who and the sonic screwdriver. See more »

A Pleasant Procedural With Comedic Chemistry
10 July 2018 | by atlasmbSee all my reviews

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.

Update 10/1/18: I am upgrading to an "8" due to great episode casting and my overall enjoyment of this series.

Just give the show a couple episodes to get rolling. It is worth it.
