    Good Cop blends the cheerful silliness of Brooklyn Nine-Nine with the tidy storytelling of Breckman’s other crime comedy, Monk, and it elevates the familiar police-show formula with a strong ensemble cast.

    The Good Cop is a cop procedural that follows its own sort of formula, one that injects some warmth, some innocence and breezy, goofy delight into this typically testosterone-filled space. Where's the crime in that?

    The Good Cop is a solid, traditional detective sitcom for viewers seeking the solace of a simpler time, before cable and disruptive streaming services altered the landscape with weird shows like “Stranger Things.” And ironically, it’s brought to you by Netflix.

    Some will call it quirky, some will say it is a less cerebral/serious cop show. The issue isn't so much with the crime storylines however. Somewhat lame humor, some downright mediocre acting, and less than good personal storylines for the characters is what keeps this from being all that good.

    Tony Danza's character comes across as almost a caricature, Groban's character just seems unbelievably naive, Barbaro is just there to be eye candy and a foil, while Isiah Whitlock's character is probably the most likable playing a cop beyond caring with his retirement coming up.

    We'll see if it matures any and if it gets a second season...

I keep repeating some of the funniest lines to my hubby. Danza and Groban are a great duo, and it is laugh out loud funny at times. Hope it lasts! Full Review »
