'Lethal Weapon' Recap: Riggs and Murtaugh Land Their Biggest Fish Ever

Lethal Weapon 's seventh episode, "Fashion Police," has Riggs and Murtaugh pursuing a murder cum money laundering investigation with a sexy DEA agent who looks a lot like a potential love interest for Riggs. Murtaugh fails miserably at batchin' it while Trish is out of town, Riggs is plagued by dreams of a naked shower nookie in the afterlife with Miranda, and as usual, Dr. Mo Cahill knocks it out of the park with some extraordinary insights on grief. The focus of the hour, however, really is the chemistry between DEA Agent Karen Palmer. ...Read More... //

Lethal Weapon: "Spilt Milk" Review

I don't exactly know what Lethal Weapon will become as a series once Riggs and Murtaugh fully bond and develop a strong, meaningful friendship, but the journey to get there is quite enjoyable. This week, thanks to a strong performance by guest star Michael Raymond-James (Terriers, True Blood), the show delivered its best episode yet. A violent case involving a clinical drug trial gone wrong caused most everyone around Riggs focus in more on his PTSD and overt risk-taking. This went beyond his more recent grief over his wife's death and dealt more with his time as a SEAL and whether or not he ever sought the proper counseling when he returned home from overseas. It also made Murtaugh realize just how little he knew about his new partner. Granted, there should be a "getting to know you" buffer for new pairings, but Riggs' crazy behavior shines a bright light on the fact that people know little about his mysterious backstory.

Lethal Weapon Season 1 Episode 5 Review: Spilt Milk

Riggs wasn't going to be able to keep everything in forever, was he? He finally started to open up on Lethal Weapon Season 1 Episode 5 , as the case he and Murtaughwere investigating hit very close to home. Sure it was tiny baby steps, but at least Riggs made progress. Once again Lethal Weapon tugged at my heartstrings and made me cry. This is starting to become a regular mantra for me with this show. But, c'mon, how can you not be pulled into all the emotion this show exudes week after week?  Read More...   //

'Lethal Weapon' Recap: Riggs and Murtaugh Pursue a Criminal Who is Even Crazier Than Riggs

Well folks, Lethal Weapon has done it again with "Spilt Milk," the show's fifth freshman installment. While the guffaws continue, the relationship between Murtaugh and Riggs deepens as we delve into the details revealing the breadth and intensity of Riggs' military experience. This episode gives us Riggs at his most sane yet. For Murtaugh's part, he faces the possibility that he's just not as sharp as he used to be before the heart surgery.  Read More... //

Lethal Weapon: "There Goes The Neighborhood" Review

Lethal Weapon truly proved this week that its best qualities, its grace, rested within its characters and not its action. Sure, there were a few tense moments in "There Goes the Neighborhood" -- a shootout in Sherman Oaks, a tussle with a naked "Black Hulk," and the standoff at the end between Murtaugh and Marcus -- but overall the series is starting to ease up on the adrenaline and play into the strong chemistry between the two leads. I don't know how many more rifts "Sand Hobo" Riggs and "Bald is Beautiful" Murtaugh can endure, or concoct outside of the death wish dynamic, but the blowout they had in this episode featured their most serious moment to date. Murtaugh, coming from a place of panic over what could have happened to RJ, straight up punched Riggs in the mouth and said some very hurtful things. It was also interesting to watch Murtaugh recognize exactly the type of mortal danger RJ faced being pulled over as a black teenager so this confrontation worked on several tense levels.

Lethal Weapon: "Best Buds" Review

At this point, three episodes in, I'm kind of looking to see how FOX's Lethal Weapon reboot might subvert expectations. It'd be easy enough to say that the case-of-the-week in "Best Buds" was inconsequential, but I get the feeling it wasn't - not with so many unresolved murders at the end and the Cartel lingering in the background. It had all the makings of a seasonal arc. As in, the criminal spine of the show that might connect to the dead how Riggs' wife. I could be wrong, of course, but it just seemed strange to recover the money and then end with the news that Angela (Ellen Hollman) had been freakin' decapitated and -- you know -- case closed. So we'll have to see what comes of all this. READ MORE...

Lethal Weapon Season 1 Episode 4 Review: There Goes the Neighborhood

OMG, you guys. This show. Despite all the fun that happened on Lethal Weapon Season 1 Episode 4 , things got a little tense between our two favorite detectives. So bad, in fact, that they had to go through a bit of couples therapy. The great thing about guys, though, is they don't hold grudges, and, soon enough, the best bromance on TV was back and better than ever.  ...Read More...   //

'Lethal Weapon' Recap: Murtaugh and Riggs Take Down A Band of Thieves Who Use Children to Find Their Targets

"There Goes the Neighborhood" is rife with high quality goodies. Right out of the gate we getDr. Mo Cahill all smokin' hot in a shortie wetsuit at the same beach where (surprise) hobo Riggs crouches over a spicket rinsing his delicates. She does look impressively smoking hot, by the way, and hotter yet when she slams Riggs about his raggedy-man appearance. This is the kind of feistiness that gives a character depth and staying power, so it's a huge boost for the LAPD shrink. ...Read More... //
