Review: What Does 'The Glades' Have to Do With Your Laundry?

'The Glades' (10PM ET Sunday, A&E) may not have risen to the level of must-see TV, but it's certainly gotten better.

If you think of the Florida-set detective drama as a less ambitious 'Burn Notice' or a throwback to the moderately competent police procedurals of years gone by, it may well work as a pleasant summer diversion.

The biggest change is that the lead character, relocated Chicago police officer Jim Longworth, is no longer off-puttingly obnoxious, as he was in last year's wince-inducing pilot for 'The Glades.' Jim, who's played by Matt Passmore, has been wisely dialed down several notches and given relatively interesting cases to work.
