The premise is interesting and the film sounds very interesting but it was all pretty boring in the pilot. It was basically Lethal Weapon with the races in reverse and no humor. I am pretty tired of both procedural dramas that take themselves too seriously and the grizzled veteran cop with questionable ethics paired up with a wide eyed, by the book younger cop. And here we got both TV tropes. The performances were fine but Bill Paxton and Justin Cornwell are doing nothing here that hasn't been done to death before. I also thought the show was unusually violent for a CBS show.
WILL I WATCH IT AGAIN?
No thank you.
