    Wasn't sure what to think about this show, but I've really come to like it a lot. Nobody has done a decent cop buddy comedy/drama in a long time. Damon Wayans is very good as Murtaugh, and the guy who plays Riggs is even better. He's a little too crazy at times, but it mostly works because he's evolving...ever so slowly.

    Agreed; I found it surprisingly enjoyable-not must-see TV, but something that's fun. I like the dynamic between Murtaugh and his wife as well; it provides necessary depth to his character and allows for an even greater contrast with Riggs' situation. I rather hope that they don't tease out the mystery of Riggs' wife's death too much; while it provides an underlying plot point to the show, I don't feel it services the story-line if they drag it along.

    Yeah, pretty good show. Enjoyable is definitely the word to describe it. Not overly deep, but not every show has to be.
