    Sexy, Funny, Edgy, Fast Paced, Game Changing!


    That is what this show is trying to be, but it's not. It's trying way to hard to be cool and in the end it's barely watchable. The pilot was drawn out and even with the limited commercials it was still slow. I'll keep watching because there is talent and potential, but if this doesn't kick into gear quick, it won't get renewed.

    I really tried to watch the full hour of this show but turned off 3/4 way thru, at first I really thought they were a gay couple of cops, but then they tried to hard to prove they weren't. It wasn't funny and way too long and drawn out. And the argument over a ding in the door reminded me a little of many other cop shows.

    i think there's great chemistry between the lead characters, they're really funny and sexy.

    I've given it a chance and it's not very good but it's going to be canned soon, so will probably stop watching it.

    If only the show was about a gay pair of cops! That would actually make it original. Instead it's just like every other buddy cop show where the two male leads are both straight and seem like a married couple. I tried watching an episode, but spent most of the time half watching, half surfing the internet. And I disagree, I think the acting is wretched.

    I actually find the show very entertaining, it is awkward in places, the pacing and cuts are weird and all over the place at times, but it is still very entertaining and deserves time to mature and get even better.



    They do tend to push the couple stuff a bit too much though, but it is what the show is based on after all. I'll be pissed if it ends up cancelled with all the crap everywhere. But well, the entertainement provided by a show never seems to really enter the equation lately.
