F/X's TERRIERS

Watched this PI show tonight, and really enjoyed it.

It's the story of two (unlicensed) PIs, who of course get in over their heads.

That's not the draw, however. The draw is the two PIs banter. Even though the material is dark, and dangerous, the two PIs joke their way through the case. I'm still digesting the show, but one of the things I do like about it is this: The cases do not seem to standalone.

I'm judging this by one line at the end of the episode, and the coming attractions, but it seems what the characters accomplished (sort of) in the first episode, will follow them through the rest of the season. I look forward to what happens next.

Unfortunately, this is a show I still have to digest a bit more. Love the lead actors and love their personal lives. The case, however, did not jump out at me. And since it seems what happened in that case will build in the next several episodes, it strikes me the adventure should stand out some more.

What did you all think?

I'll be tuning in again.

I'm going to give it another shot. I liked the characters, but I thought the plot was pretty much a cliche.

I didn't love it, but I didn't hate it. I agree with Bill with the cliche angle... unlicensed PI's, one who was a cop but got booted from the force for drinking too much but still has connections, and the the rogue guy that we really don't know anything about... yet.
I really enjoyed the banter between the two guys though...
I'll tune in next week!

I enjoyed it. Very few pilots blow me away, but this was good enough to make me watch a second and third episode. Shawn Ryan (The Shield, The Unit) is involved, so you can expect a good handling of the delicate balance between standalone and serialized elements.
