'The Good Guys' - 'Pilot' Recap (Series Premiere) Episode 1


I'm not usually one to go for police procedurals. For one thing, it's a lot of work keeping track of alibis, clues, witnesses, perps, and everything else. But I figured 'The Good Guys' would be different, and I was right. It's not so much a procedural as it is an action-thriller with plenty of laughs thrown in. Our own Danny Gallagher has been having a blast with it, too; check out his preview and interviews, and he even got to play an extra!


It's hard to describe 'The Good Guys,' but if I had to choose a few words, I'd go with quirky, funny, thrilling, and retro. I say retro because one of the main characters, Dan Stark (Bradley Whitford), is an old-school cop with a '70s 'stache and a penchant for muscle cars. I predict a big surge in people scouring Hemmings Motor News for 1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Ams. I forgot how sweet they are until Dan practically had a 'When Harry Met Sally' moment after he saw one for sale. Of course, he ended up with the car, although it's not clear whether he actually purchased it. I'm thinking not. Dan's not one for rules.
