    I started watching this show bearing in mind a reviewer had called it sophomoric (is fratermorphic a word? Anyway it was both so I said goodbye and went off to watch something less juvenile.

    I have tried very hard to like this show. I love all the actors in it and wish them the best, but the story lines make no sense, the writing is terrible, there seems to be no logic or continuity behind the characters actions and decisions. I can only hope the actors start working soon on something watchable.

    The emphasis on the Animal House-style antics over the actual case of the week isn't the problem; it's that the shenanigans are a little too "bro" for their own good.

    So, it's not as intrigue-heavy as "White Collar," as satiric as "The Good Guys" or as beautifully located as "Hawaii Five-O"; Franklin & Bash is smart, it's fun and it's summer.

    The show is kind of amusing, at least in a summer-TV sort of way.
