The Good Cop: Season 1 (2018)


Critic Consensus: Despite a pair of likable leads, The Good Cop's reliance on procedural cliches sucks out much of the fun -- though those looking for an easy watch may find comfort in its familiarity.

Critic Reviews for The Good Cop Season 1

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (14)

It's not going to blow your mind but it is affable, especially if you liked dramedies like Monk, Psych or White Collar.

Groban is appealing in his first big TV series swing while Danza is Danza -- broad and constantly wisecracking. Those looking for any sharp edges to either character will find themselves searching in vain.

Good-natured, light as air and prehistoric by Netflix standards.

How you respond to The Good Cop will be determined largely by how much you embraced the 'Characters Welcome' phase of USA, although I must say that I watched most of those shows and couldn't really get through much of this one.

But [Josh Groban] doesn't add anything to a character who's conceived to be a blank slate, and "The Good Cop" doesn't help him out in the slightest.

Very light. The old- school show is easy to take, but the denouements can be seen from miles away, and Danza continues to have the kind of intensity that you either love or hate.

Adapted from an Israeli format, it has the same risky combination of police work and laughs that "Brooklyn Nine Nine" has a problem with, but this one has a lot less fun.

Sep 21, 2018 | Full Review…

It's not a show worth shouting about, but it definitely deserves more attention than Netflix is giving it.

Sep 19, 2018 | Full Review…

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?

Sep 17, 2018 | Rating: 80/100 | Full Review…

It's rare that a show can succeed at being both old-school and innovative at the same time, and yet The Good Cop does just that.

Audience Reviews for The Good Cop: Season 1

A show that really appeals to me, since i was a big fan of Monk. It is fun with som descent mysteries. And i like the dilema between the father and son

Starts off good with the first few episodes but becomes very stupid very quick. Brooklyn 99 is often more serious.

Great show! I'm bummed that Netflix canceled it! I want to see more episodes!

I loved this show. The characters were hilarious, stories interesting, but light enough and humorous enough to make it a joy to watch. I am shocked Netflix didn't renew. I'm an avid. Netflix consumer and it simply wasn't advertised enough. We came across it by mistake but plan to tell friends and relatives to watch it.

Likeable characters, funny, interesting crime mysteries. All in all a good, clean show.

My husband and I both love this show! It is predictable but the stories are intertaining so we do not mind. Love the cast.

Funny and a good story. Looking forward to season 2.

Just a fun cop show without all the hangups. We need more like this one.

The way shows used to be. So so so so great!

This show has the actors and general premise to be a really good show, but instead of aspiring to be to be in the "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" class the show is happy using tired storylines from 45 years of sitcoms and being without imagination. i'm rooting for you to upgrade this show, but if you don't it won't last.
