    A new, trite and pretty awful scripted formulaic cop show.

    Government agents loll around the beach, exchanging the kind of banter for which television writers would, in a just world, be sent to some quiet place to reflect on their idiocy. All this, amid the plotting of incoherent designs to trap drug dealers, and plenty of sand and dazzling blue skies--elements that have on occasion succeeded in mitigating the flaws of some deadly TV series. This deadly series isn't one of them.

    Surprised at how much I actually enjoyed this show. Found it quite enjoyable. Hope the rest of the season follows the pilot's formula. Some may find it to be another cop show but like I said I was quite surprised, I didn't expect it to grab my attention so much. Full Review »

    Okay, you can't deny it, the trailer was awesome. I think if you give it time, Graceland will grow to become an amazing show. Right now, you can already see all the negative reviews. What Graceland lacks is a special something. A special something that defines the show. And by special something, I mean the story line, characters, and everything about it is a bit dry. There isn't that much humor. Okay, well you might say that humor isn't what a drama is for. Then, I will tell you that there isn't enough drama to make up for that. This show is slow moving too, that's why I say the show has a good chance to grow. The concept is a very good idea though. Full Review »

    At no point in the pilot episode, do you feel like you should be feeling anything for these characters, characters who all seem miscast, belonging more on a daytime soap. Even the leader Briggs, never comes across as even resembling an FBI officer in real life. It's too formulaic, badly written and definitely should be avoided. Full Review »
