    I really wanted to enjoy this new show, as I'm familiar with the streets it shoots on. I hope it improves soon or it is doomed. However, I felt the same about Seinfeld, which I grew to love.

    Bradley Whitford doing a straight rip-off of Dabney Coleman's "Buffalo Bill" recast as a cop.

  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.

    Never before have stereotypes been so proudly strutted about.

    Good Guys isn't a perfect construct, but it's a well-executed one--albeit more a breezy, busy diversion than appointment TV, placing greater reliance on guests than its limited supporting cast to prop up the principals.
