Seitz on Graceland: A Sun-Drenched Cop Drama That’s Both Eye and Brain Candy

Remember that scene in Reservoir Dogs, in which a former undercover cop helps a current undercover cop rehearse his cover story, and they come off like a couple of actors running lines before the curtain goes up on a play? Imagine that somebody took that scene and made a drug thriller out of it, one set on a sunny beach with huge, rolling waves, and stocked with ridiculously gorgeous actors whose hair and clothes are so perfect that you'd think that everybody who graduated from FBI school was given a makeup artist, hairstylist, and personal shopper along with their gun, badge, and diploma. That's Graceland (Thursdays, 10 p.m.), a new USA drama about federal agents going undercover to bust criminals in Southern California.
