    Angie Tribeca hits on every cylinder--sharp writing, consistent attention to detail (the visual jokes are just as funny as the spoken ones), terrific performances by Jones, MacArthur and Burns, as well as the secondary cast and guest stars, and great direction, including Steve Carell for the pilot episode.

    There are a lot of well-worn cop commonalities in entertainment, but five hours of episodes, with wall-to-wall jokes targeting cliches big and small, makes one wonder if the series will have to change course soon, either in Season 2 or later down the line (assuming it gets picked up by TBS). It's certainly not an issue in Season 1, and the depth of knowledge on display actually leads to believing in the series' endurance.

    The preposterous humor hits the right notes and offers something different then most traditional sitcom fare. If you’re looking for something fresh and and laugh out loud funny, Angie Tribeca is for you.

    It’s not easy to make such inspired nonsense fly so effortlessly, and I give credit to the Carells for creating a buoyant atmosphere where the pace of clowning, word play, and visual punch lines never quits. Jones, so endearing on “Parks and Recreation,” jumps into the gonzo material without a hitch, showing more comic versatility than ever. And she is surrounded by a strong cast of regulars.

    This sitcom’s battering ram of madcap inanity can run aground when a particular episode doesn’t have an especially memorable storyline, and perhaps Angie Tribeca caters too much to an audience in thrall to the old “Airplane!” style of so-broad-it-hurts humor. From the 1980s’ “Sledge Hammer!” to the more recent “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” smart-aleck cop comedies are nothing new. But in its minute-to-minute pleasures, Angie Tribeca is one big goofy grin of a sitcom. Season 2 can’t come quickly enough.

    Jones’ heroic commitment helps Angie Tribeca maintain its balance. She’s playing Mariska Hargitay on SVU, but in a world where the crimes are low stakes and easily tied to puns. It’s a performance that never breaks.

    Credit Jones and MacArthur with wringing about as much mileage as they can out of scenes where the two are thisclose to kissing before experiencing some spectacular interruption, but there’s only so far one can go on jokes that feel so well worn.
