Goofs

Although the actor is younger than 60, he cannot convincingly portray a man in his late forties and, in 2019, he appears way too elderly to play a rookie cop. Police department not only have age limits, but the applicant cop also needs to be in great physical shape. That is not the case here.

Edit : actually, Fillion is in his late forties and does look like he is in his late forties, so... See more »

I liked it.
17 October 2018 | by iix-31422See all my reviews

In this season off terrible TV shows like FBI, Mayan MC and Magnum P,I, This show is a breath of fresh air. The characters are in place in the first 15 minutes of the beginning. We know where we stand and how the show is going to run. The writers apparently DON'T think we are stupid like the ones in "Manifest". This is not a re-invention of TV but, god, did we need something that didn't suck in this worst TV season of all ages (I refer to "The Connors" ).
