    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 »

    As soon as I saw the trailer for Graceland I knew I was gonna like it being a criminology student. I liked the way they set it up with the FBI looking into one of their own but somewhere along the line I think they lost track of the plot. It started of with this big bang and now it's almost as if they're trying to change their mind about what the show is actually about: the agents or the criminals. It started off being something different, focusing on the struggle of undercover agents to maintain their morale even when being forced to fuse with California's criminal underworld. The struggle that Mike has to deal with between doing his duty or his loyalty to the man who saved his life who may also be a dirty cop. However, this roller coaster ride that they have viewers on: making us suspicious of Briggs then making us sympathize then making us hate him then making us like him is too much. They need to save all the plot twists they can because there's only so many twists and turns that a series can take before it burns out like the others. Full Review »
