If it wasn't for a couple of good guest stars and supporting roles, this pilot would have been awful. The location doesn't give much, the lead character is a cliched schmuck I really wouldn't mind getting killed of in the pilot episode. He lacks in charm what the script must have portrayed him. A sad state of affair for the lead.
The opening case is also weak. It's predictable and doesn't manage to help developing our knowledge of the characters.
And the golfing. Come on. Too much, way too much. The fast paced romance interest was annoying as well. I mean. The actress playing her, and the character it self, was quite interesting, but the script was desperate to get that story line going way too fast.
