The Good Guys: "Pilot" Review


On paper, this show has all the elements you'd want in a cop show. It's from Matt Nix, who created the smart, funny, exciting USA Network show Burn Notice and it stars accomplished actors Bradley Whitford (The West Wing) and Colin Hanks (Mad Men) as mismatched partners assigned to the Routine Investigations division of the Dallas PD. Whitford plays Dan Stark, an old-school cop rocking a 70's 'stache, who doesn't mind breaking a few rules and is still riding the coat-tails of when he saved the governor's son decades ago. Hanks plays Jack Bailey, a young, ambitious detective who, you guessed it, does things by the book. As the episode unfolds, their ho-hum investigation of a stolen humidifier turns into a big mess involving drug kingpins, criminals bent on revenge, strip clubs, plastic surgery gone wrong and highly trained assassins. So far, so good.
