Us Rating: ** 1/2

This cop show (from the creator of Burn Notice) is so high-profile, Fox is previewing it before American Idol. For now, the buzz is not quite warranted -- but there's definite promise. Meet Jack (Colin Hanks), a stuffy detective who clashes with his live-wire, playboy partner Dan (The West Wing's Bradley Whitford). There's a nice, lighthearted tone, and the playful shoot-'em-up sequences culminate in a rousing climax. Alas, the talented stars lack that crackling chemistry. Time to rent Lethal Weapon, boys!
