Battle Creek Reviews & Ratings

60 minutes

Two detectives with very different worldviews are teamed up and must answer the question: Are cynicism, guile and deception enough to clean up the semi-mean streets of Battle Creek, Mich., in the face of a complete lack of resources; or is the exact opposite true – it takes naïveté, trust and a boatload of resources?

Battle Creek reminds us that not everything happens in NY, LA, Miami or Chicago. I am not sure that it will make it since it is already on the endangered list, but it is a good show with somewhat enigmatic characters that have some room to grow. The GOODY TWO SHOES character is not two dimensional and the experienced hardass is not all that predictable.

The supporting cast is AWESOME...The mayor and his brother (not sure they will be in all the episodes, but they are great character actors) and the staff and administrators all serve as great opportunities for more plots...PLEASE KEEP THIS ONE...It's a winner!

Another great show they canceled. When you have a show that works don't fix it by taking it away from people who love it.

The show is a crime drama about detectives in a small town called Battle Creek. The officers in this town have predated equipment and need help; they get it. The FBI creates a field office in this town giving the police department access to their tools and methods. After the first episode this show isn't exciting enough for me. There's nothing about this cop show that makes it stand out. Watch it if you must.

Don't know if it is because it's only the first episode, but something is missing.

This was an 'okay' procedural drama, which, unfortunately, did not have anything spectacular or unique to offer. I feel like it was lacking a bit of something extra to make it stand out from the rest of shows within the genre. I liked some of the characters and their quirks, such as Kal Penn and Liza Lapira, but I think that the storylines could've been more exciting to make the show more successful.

I believe that the network was right to end the show after the first season as it would've struggled to keep viewers engaged if they had carried on with a similar approach from the first season.

Good "Copedy" sort of like MOL, Psych, Monk,. Enjoyable entertainment, but won't win any acting or writing awards.

This is a wonderful show. Love the drama, plus the humor. Don't cancel. Two unmatched partners--very funny.
