Terriers first (and unfortunately only) season was near perfection. The story was captivating and the characters were interesting. The biggest thing that sets Terriers apart from the competition is its believability. I have never felt more connected to a group of fictional characters. Highly recommended.
This is one of my favorite shows of all time. Right up there with Breaking Bad and Battlestar Galactica. Donal Logue and Michael Raymond James are best friends in the show and in real life, so their chemistry is fantastic. The show is a great drama and can be very funny as well. Top notch righting and acting. The stand alone episodes are great, but the overarching plot is where the show really shines. It is a very intriguing mystery that really keeps you on the edge of your seat. Sadly it only got one season, but it wraps itself up nicely at the end. Do yourself a favor, watch this show.
Every so often, a show arrives and instantly feels lived-in, like a comfortable old couch with slight depressions in all the right places. FX's Terriers is one of those shows, beautifully torn and frayed from the get-go.
We love this show and are heartbroken it's been canceled. The cast, writing, story etc were not the boring formula, but was outside the box, cleaver , witty, funny, maybe enough people didnt get to watch it yet. Bring it back again!
Wonderfully written and beautifully acted. And whenever I see an intelligent, engaging show like this actually make it onto the programming schedule it is followed - at least for me - by a slightly queasy feeling in my stomach that intimates imminent cancellation.
The pilot was so-so. Two slacker private investigators, one an ex-cop that (cliche of cliches) still has a few law-enforcement peripheral resources to do things like triangulate the position of a cel phone (and have it done almost instantly).
It better get more engaging, and witty, over the next few episodes, or it will join Rubicon on the "got boring fast" list.
Terriers begins a right ship that heads in the completely wrong direction. The two main stars have great chemistry outside of "Hank" being unrealistically altruistic at times. The episode by episode cases as well as multi-episode plots than transpire in the first half dozen episodes are well paced, however this is unfortunately a short lived peak for the show. We are then treated to soap opera like themes, endless cliffhanger sub-plots, uninspired cases and no overall direction related to the fact that they are two guys doing PI work. If you are looking for cases of romance and infidelity this is your show. If you are looking for a show mainly about two guys and their endeavors as PIs this is not a good place to look,
