    Did anyone else catch the preview of The Good Guys with Colin Hanks and Bradley Whitford?

    Wife and I made it through it. I have to say the show is different. We will give it another episode when it begins in June.

    As a first episode where they are setting up all the premises upon which the series was based it was okay. Got a kick out of their using a gunshot sound when flashing the onscreen location titles, in homage to Law and Order's sound.

    Has potential but will depend on the writing, like any other show. Character chemistry seemed good.

    Now if I just didn't have all those sound cut-outs on my local Fox ...

    It took a good 15 to 20 minutes to really get going and I’m happy I didn’t just give up on it like I was planning on. At about the 45 minute mark I programmed it as a series link

    Recorded, but tried to stay up past my bedtime to watch. Fell asleep (no reflection of the show) and will continue tonight. The 20 minutes I saw did seem OK.

    The robber getting a phone call in the beginning was a good one.

    Looked too much like Life on Mars for my taste.

    Huh? It's a cop show and there's a younger guy and an older guy. Beyond that, I don't see it.

    Were we watching the same show? I saw no similarities between the 2 shows.


    I setup a Series Link about halfway thru the show to see where it goes.

    Well this show is from the folks who bring us Burn Notice so I was happy to watch. The show was slow to start but I liked it and plan to watch as many episodes that they will air. Since I like it and it's on FOX I do not expect it to last.

    We removed it as a series link. We just could not get into it.

    I, too, enjoyed Life on Mars and the only connection here is that they are both cop shows.

    I've watched the first two epi's and normally will give shows three looks to decide but have already set it up to record all new epi's.

    Also have Louie and Memphis Beat set to go on the dvr when they start.
    Any other summer shows you guys are interested in viewing??

    I deleted it at the second commercial break. Just couldn't get in to it. Plus with it being on Fox, I'm sure it will get canceled fairly quickly.

    I am just over half way through, started maybe a week ago and hasn't grabbed me to watch it all at once. These days with just about any new show I rarely watch much if any until the first season is over and it is confirmed for at least a 2nd. Vicious cycle I know, but I got sick of watching shows that got canceled half a season or 1 season in.

    The commercials made it seem like a USA Network style character-driven show. But, it was more like a watered-down version of Lethal Weapon.

    I'll give it a few more tries, but it needs to get better if I'm going to become a regular viewer.
