The Good Guys, Season 1TV-14

Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.


From Matt Nix (Burn Notice), comes The Good Guys, a new action-packed and comedic look at what happens when a washed-up, old-school cop and a by-the-book, modern-day detective try to expose the big picture of small crime. Once upon the 1970s, Dan Stark (Bradley Whitford) and his partner, Frank Savage, were big-shot Dallas detectives. So big, in fact, that they were lauded as American heroes after saving the Governor's son. Thirty years later, Dan Stark is a washed-up detective who spends most of his time drunk or re-hashing his glory days. Dan's new partner, Jack Bailey (Colin Hanks), is an ambitious, by-the-book and overall good detective, but is sometimes a bit too snarky for his own good. His habit of undermining himself has earned him a dead-end position in the department, and he is stuck solving annoying petty theft cases that nobody else wants. Worse, he's been given the thankless task of babysitting Dan, the drunk pariah who can never keep partners for long.

Customer Reviews

Very Fun!

I actually enjoyed this pilot more than I enjoyed the pilot for Burn Notice (Matt Nix's other show), which is now my absolute favorite show ever. So if this can maintain the momentum, I have very high hopes. Definitely worth a look!

Doesn't Even Try To Be Good

Who greenlit this disaster? This show is based off of the same formula employed by every other off-beat, quirky, trys-to-be-funny cop show:

1. Two cops are forced to work together that have different styles.
2. Both cops are continually after something bigger, and try to get it in unconventional ways.
3. People in charge disapprove of the unconventional methods being used.
4. Said two cops end up getting good results with unconventional methods.
5. People in charge turn a blind eye.

And each episode is inherently the same. With kooky guest stars and completely unrealistic situations. I realize it's television, and realism isn't key. But at least try for a shred of realism, just to pass off the rest of the ridiculous scenarios!

It's a shame, because, we all know Bradley Whitford has the talent. His dialouge is just too pathetic to do anything compelling with. On the other hand, Colin Hanks walks around with the one expression he has, that he basically borrowed from his brother: THERE'S NO CRYING IN BASEBALL. That's it. That's the only face Colin Hanks can make.

I predict it doesn't even run out the front 13.

An alcoholic aging cop does not make for good humor

I watched this with hopes of it being funny ... as it turned out it was just pathetic. There was a time when this type of humor was acceptable, but those days are long gone.
