  • So I'm watching this show,having a great time; finding drama, comedy, romance and action packed into a 45 minute episode. I go to look for season two but... oh, wait... it's been cancelled.?!moreless

    7.5
    In the line of Joss Whedon's 'Firefly', Liz Tucillo's 'Related' and Jonathan Steinberg's 'Human Target', comes Craig Silverstein's 'Standoff'. Like most decent programs on cable TV 'Standoff' was cancelled after only one season A.K.A just as things were getting interesting. Now don't get me wrong, things on this show started getting interesting about five minutes into the pilot episode because unlike most cop/partner shows these guys prove (albeit sometimes haphazardly) that you can sleep your partner and save the day. No more sexual tension in the office, no more wanting what you can't have and dragging out personal (and fan's) desires over seasons and seasons of teasing and heavy wishing. These guys got together right off the bat and took us fans with them on their crazy-fun emotional roller-coaster ride, nabbing HT's all the while. Only wish we could have gone another round on the coaster and maybe have learnt more about Mathers and Duff. Well, you know what the Stones would have to say about this: 'You can't always get what you want'. It was probably the originality of this show that killed it, because from where I'm sitting there couldn't possibly be another reason.moreless
  • Show that did ok.. but ok is not good enough..

    6.0
    When local tv channel first aired it, I think I saw the add but never thought to watch it. But as oneday I was really bored, get behind tv and started to watch it.. from the beginning to end. I most say it was no way the best thing I have seen. It was not close to good thing.. something I wait excitingly, it was ok.. If I really had nothing better to do, then it was good entertainment.



    I think that most of the time, they had not too strong storylines. It was constant struggle between where to put main focus: the case storyline or Emily-Matt relationship. And that was so much to feel that. There were strong episodes that really strike me but on the other hand, there was very weak episodes too. From one edge to another and that did not build stable feel about serie. And maybe if they had concentrated more on the cases, made them more exciting, having more twists, maybe this show had gone longer.



    Anyway, it was great entertainment but this is not one of those shows, that get into my mind when I lay in my bed before falling a sleep and thinking - wow.. that was the most stunning thing in my day.. It is thing you watch and then forget.. and never wish to watch again.moreless
  • good show...

    9.0
    I watched one or two episodes when this show first came out and then started watching a different show that came on at the same time instead. However, I went and started watching the episodes online and I like them a lot. The premise of the show is two FBI negotiators handling situations. I love the captain FBI lady and the swat team dynamics. The relationship between Matt and Emily is funny and fresh. Most shows just have sexual tension, these guys are actually in a relationship and I like seeing how that effects their jobs. Overall, interesting show and it's sad that it got canceled...moreless
  • WHY?!?

    This show is one of the few shows I absoulutly want Fox to bring back. Most of the shows they got rid of, fine; they were a waste of time. This show was fabulous though and deserves a spot on my favorites list. This show was hilarious, romantic, dramatic, and action packed all at the same time. The characters were pricless, the plot was genious. There wern't any problems with this show. It was fast paced and exciting. The charaters stuck with you and right away you new who they were and were people that would be fun to hang out with. This show was worth several more seasons.moreless
