Well that was a giant disappointment.
When I saw that they had paired possibly the hottest supermodel/actress of all time with Jon Tenney, who has a boatload of credentials as one of the best dramatic/comedic appealing actors out there, I was really rooting for this to be a hit.
It will not be a hit, I fear, unless we have really lowered our standards.
Even as good as those two leads can be, they have little to work with. The entire idea is preposterous. The writing is as amateurish as it gets. The production values are cheesy, and the production music matches the rest of the show perfectly, as both are boring, tentative, poorly-executed, and gutless. There is no sexual tension between the leads whatsoever; in fact we can't figure out if they have a history, are possibly brother and sister, or if they even like or trust each other. They appear to be handcuffed together somehow, and the only clue to this is that each separately screwed up a plum assignment in a past life. Who cares?
They are not Nick and Norah; they are not Mr. and Mrs. Smith. And they are not even workable rip-offs of either much-better idea. I don't know what they are trying to be, but what they aren't is interesting.
I knew we were in trouble when things started with a meaningless bus chase, a guy in a squirrel suit, and them getting arrested for a reason we can't even understand (none of which is germane to the story), all to let us know they are unconventional. Unconventional can be interesting, but not as portrayed here. And those are not spoilers; the spoiling had already happened in the writer's room.
This show actually makes all of the other ampersand-based shows, such as Franklin & Bash, Rizzoli & Isles, and any other number of really hacky cable shows look a lot better, but none of them are, sadly, watchable. And this may be the least-watchable summer cable show since the dreadful Memphis Beat, which proved that completely useless and boring shows can get multiple-season runs on cable. Lets pray that this one gets a merciful euthanasia long before it gets a second season; the only reason to keep this show in production is so that the untalented producers and hack writers don't move on and pollute other shows.
