Unfortunately, they had to use all the best bits to make those promo clips. I didn’t really laugh out loud all that often, which is kind of a bummer. As much as I think Samberg deserves a vehicle, I’m not sure this is going to work in the long run. Or even in the short run really.
I do like Samberg and Braugher together. Everyone else can be recast as far as I’m concerned. They’re all trying too hard, but that’s okay, maybe they’ll settle down. Samberg is not too over the top (although I bet folks disagree with me) and it’s kind of a fun show. I don’t think it’ll make it on the permanent list but I’ll watch a few more episodes before giving up the ghost.
It’s not that different from other cop shows. Or comedy cop shows. Are there any comedy cop shows? I can’t really think of any half hour sitcoms in this genre…
Wow, I can’t think of anything else to say about the show. And I just watched it. That’s probably not a good sign <concerned face>
