Episodes: 10

Release date: 21 September

Rating: 4/5

I only watch the first 2 episodes, so this will not be a review of the entire season 1.

I’m a great fan of Josh Groban, so obviously I was expecting this series. Groban is the son, Tony Caruso Jr, and Danza play the father. The son is the good cop, the too much good cop, soย stickler for the rules. The father is a corrupt cop who is now forced to live with his son. I read a lot of nasty comments and reviews online, written by “famous website” who didn’t reccomend this series, because it’s boring.

Well, I admit it’s not like “CSI” or “Criminal minds”: there isn’t blood on the crime scene, no violence or s*x scenes (for this 2 episodes!) and I really like that.

I really enjoy crime series, but I don’t want to watch constantly gruesome shows. The news are bad enough, thanks. This is the perfect show to watch with all the family: it’s funny, quiet and the episodes are about 21 min long. There’s only a mistery for episode, so they’re pretty simple, but original and the other characters contributes to the light and easy atmosphere.

There was a scene in the first episode that makes me laugh so hard. And I really like the father/son scenes. I will definitely watch all the 10 episodes.

I hope for just a little “sing a song” scene with Groban in the next episodes. This will be perfect.

 

Any other fan of Josh Groban out there?
