Review - The Good Guys Season 1 Episode 3 Broken Door Theory

Of the first 3 episodes, "Broken Door Theory" was the most irritating, and I think that's the last one for me. The gags, from the sneezing to Dan looking for some serial killer from the vending machine case, fell on the side of annoying rather than amusement.

I like the wacky direction the cases take This week, the vending machine case, as innocent as it is, balloons into an escort service case only after Dan continues pushing the issue, leading to the shootout shown at the very beginning of the episode.

However, it does not offset how bothered I am every time Dan says something ridiculous which is probably every other minute. Bradley Whitford is a fine actor and is able to balance comedic and introspective moments when the lines are right, but Dan is a character who is too unrealistic.

Score: 7.0/10
