Critic Reviews

  1. "The Good Guys" isn't really good but it is OK if all you seek from TV is bland, comfortable entertainment--the same type of program you were watching 30 years ago.
  2. 40
    The humor is madcap and inane where it should be wry, and the characters are stubbornly predictable. The editing of the show is swift and bouncy, as it is on "Burn Notice,'' but still the hour drags. It's just not much fun.
  3. They might have to lose some of the cartoon-cop humor to get there. Whether they do may determine whether Dan and Jack end up as a short, forgettable joke or a couple of cops we care about.

Lines and scenes of the Good Guys make you laugh out loud just remembering them. The edits and scene merges and structure seem well done. The site says its single camera. Full Review »

Although the humor is corny and the cop version of The Odd Couple has been done before, the show works on a few levels. Dan Stark is trapped in his own time warp of how things used to be (and how he used to be perceived) along with his obsession with his own good looks that is personified in his mustache-grooming create a likeable character with some good one-liners. The backwards, lets-start-with-the-end, type of filming is pretty original for a TV show and the plot works out with a clear, though not always believable, resolution. Overall, I enjoy the show.

Bradley Whitford's constant comedic timing is amazing! I think this show is a great way to turn off your brain and just watch a funny show that requires no thought. Colin is the perfect straight man to bottle it all up. Keep em coming FOX! Full Review »
