    I think it is refreshing to have a detective show that is finally just about detecting. Jon Tenney and Rebecca Rominji don't have to show their skin, or use bad language this show reminds me of the "Rockford Files". Just good old fashioned detecting pure entertainment. It's about time!

    I love this show and i love the banter between Tenney and Romijin. The actor who plays edgar is ryan hurst he does a great. The rest of the cast is great as well.

    The show is good. A nice change in pairing of male and female partners in a private investigator setting. Usually this is done with police shows. Reminiscent of "Moonlighting". Rebecca Romijn is a fit for her role and Ryan Hurst makes the show wonderful. The stories are a little complex and hard to follow for the casual viewer.

    Different than the Baldacci book that its based on, but I really enjoy this show. Both actors are likable and their playful banter is fun to watch. Liked Tenney in "The Closer", and Romijn comes across as having a good sense of humor. Don't let the critics' opinion stop you from watching. I generally find that if the critics like something, it'll be a slow-moving bore.

    A smoothly executed vehicle for Rebecca Romijn and Jon Tenney, it knows exactly what it's doing, [16 Jun 2013]

    Together, they're charming, but the "will they or won't they?" romantic tension feels forced, and that takes much of the fun out of it.

    Every detail in the show looks and feels false and phony--from the weird, yellow-tinged warehouse/prison to the skyline view of Washington that seems to insert national monuments at random.
