Review - The Glades Season 1 Episode 1 Pilot

The Glades doesn't do anything to break the formula, but it doesn't disappoint either. Jim Longworth (Matt Passmore) plays a Florida cop who was booted out of the Chicago police force. He's pretty typical as TV cops come. He's talented, snarky, and largely uninterested in his job. He is, however, interested in Callie (Kiele Sanchez) a nurse in medical school who warms up to him quickly.

The case was weird, though not all bad. Too few suspects were introduced for the mystery to be complicated, but the story took a wild turn out of the blue when Jim's partner turns out to be the murderer. It was startling, but not played up. In fact, nothing really caught my attention, which isn't all too bad for a summer show.

Score: 8.2/10
