  • Raines was good dramedy.

    You've got to love Jeff Goldblum's way of delivering dialogue in hushed tones and warbling tempos. I'm going to say spoiler alert because of the gags. Despite the heavy theme of good and evil, orphaned kids, and murder it was very funny. The dead victim tells Raines how his comic book hero Pay/back survives by eating toxic waste. The detective quips: that lunchbox is gonna be a big seller. The old lady taking the weed glaucoma cure had a stuffed cat on her shelf and Raines said taxidermy was the highest form of flattery. Raines tried to threaten a tobacco shop owner with a retired drug dog the cop had to carry in because she was so old and when he set her down, she just veered into everything, breaking stuff. I wish this show could have stayed on the air, thanks for making me laugh creator Graham Yost.
