Critic Reviews for The Good Guys: Season 1

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (12) | Fresh (12) | Rotten (6)

The humor is madcap and inane where it should be wry, and the characters are stubbornly predictable.

Boston Globe

Constantly revving engine of a show that gels nicely and bodes well as a potential summer breakout hit.

Hollywood Reporter

When it doesn't bore you, it provokes you to think, "Boy, is this dumb."

Deseret News, Salt Lake City

An entertaining free-for-all.

People Magazine

The Good Guys has its mild charms but nothing about its characters is believable; they're stock TV characters.

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Whitford pretty much hijacks the show.

Newsday

An enjoyably silly endeavor.

Chicago Tribune

One suspects that every forthcoming episode will just be more of the same: two cops, one washed-out show.

I want to watch this show every friggin' week.

"The Good Guys" has promising elements.

"The Good Guys" suggests that a series doesn't have to break new ground to seem fresh.

Good Guys isn't a perfect construct, but it's a well-executed one

Just absurd enough to enjoy.

Whitford inhabits his role with the laid-back, reassuring ease of a true television professional--a fine actor working at top speed.

USA Today

"The Good Guys" wants first and foremost to be a comedy more than a crime drama . . . at least I think it does.

Washington Post

Though the pilot flags here and droops there, "The Good Guys" will no doubt pick up speed as everyone settles more comfortably into the idea that there are no sacred cows, not even the buddy flick.

Full Review… | May 19, 2010
Los Angeles Times

Fox's newest buddy series relies too much on the '70's-style moustache of detective Dan Stark (Bradley Whitford) and too little on the chemistry he has (or doesn't) with his partner, Jack Bailey (Colin Hanks).

New York Post

The Good Guys brings the buddy cop genre formula to the small screen, nodding to its influences without being derivative or satirical.
