There's a Lot to Love About Lethal Weapon, but There Are Still a Few Kinks

  As consumers of television, sometimes what we want from of a particular TV show doesn't line up with what the writers and producers, or even the the network, want from the show. Sometimes our own expectations change from what we thought we wanted, too. The question that arises from this is whether ...Read More...   //

'Lethal Weapon' Recap: Riggs and Murtaugh Face Off Against the Drug Cartel to Save An Old Buddy

Ratings-conscious viewers (which guillotine-wielding broadcasters have forced us to be lest we get too attached to a freshman show) can be rest assured that Lethal Weapon will be providing us with our weekly dose of sexy adrenaline-pumping action, self- and partner-deprecating hilarity, torturous grief, and syrupy sweet romance for the foreseeable future.   "Best Buds," Lethal Weapon 's third outing of the series, delivers lots more of all of the above as the partnership continues to solidify ("He took a cattle prod for me") and Riggs begins to open up to Dr. Cahill ("I shot my TV!"). This super fun episode is especially intriguing due to the introduction of Murtaugh's old training officer, Ned Brower. It's unclear if Brower's appearance is a one-off, but I vote he should be a regular. ...Read More... //

Lethal Weapon Season 1 Episode 3 Review: Best Buds

It almost seemed like Riggs and Murtaugh were going to go a day without any destruction to the city, but Riggs and Murtaugh wouldn't be Riggs and Murtaugh without a little bit of destructive action. Lethal Weapon Season 1 Episode 3 was a relatively calm hour, but while it eased up on the action, it didn't ease up on the feels as Riggs and Murtaugh investigated a case involving stolen money and drugs. ...Read More...   //

Lethal Weapon Season 1 Episode 2 Review: Surf and Turf

You guys, is this show a blast or what? Lethal Weapon Season 1 Episode 2 builds on the momentum from the premiere with more craziness, more feels, and more chemistry. Avery probably thought he was keeping Riggs and Murtaugh away from trouble by sending them out to investigate a simple noise complaint, but as we know, nothing with Riggs and Murtaugh is ever simple. So, it was no surprise that they got pulled into something much more complicated. ...Read More...   //

'Lethal Weapon' Recap: Riggs and Murtaugh Blow Up the Bad Guys and Save the Girl

Lethal Weapon 's second outing, "Surf N Turf," opens with beefcake Riggs passed out on the beach wearing nothing but a seaweed necklace. It would have been perfect if we got more revealing walk-away scene. A little well-formed southern exposure makes a girl willing to stick around for more. So, if FOX is listening, please move the air time to a more liberal hour and consider letting the natives have a little cake.   Read More... //

Lethal Weapon Recap: Smile, Though Your Heart Is Breaking

In a recurring bit sprinkled throughout this weeks Lethal Weapon, Murtaugh and Riggs bicker about how best to describe their partnership. Are they surf and turf? Ham and pineapple? Chips and salsa? Tango and Cash? Starsky and Hutch? Likewise, I spend a lot of the hour wondering the best way to describe this odd show [] //

'Lethal Weapon' Premiere Recap: Riggs and Murtagh are Back in the Saddle

Lethal Weapon 's Martin Riggs is back, my friends, but can he hold a candle to the startling blue eyes, gravel-sexy Aussie overtones,rabid suicidal bent,cowboy boots and mullet that made the movie a runaway hit when Mel Gibsonintroduced him to us 29 years ago? Meh, what does it matter? Half of you watching today have never seen the original Lethal Weapon . I'll tell you this though, you are in for a treat. FOX has recreated the franchise for a new generation and we're promised it in weekly installments instead of strung out over God knows how many summers. ...  Read More... //

Lethal Weapon Season 1 Episode 1 Review: Pilot

I don't know about everybody else, but I really enjoyed the first installment of Lethal Weapon. There were parts that were sort of goofy and unnecessary, but overall it succeeded at doing exactly what it was supposed to do: entertain. While Lethal Weapon Season 1 Episode 1 was faced-paced and action packed, it also had quieter moments that showed how different it could be from the original films that starred Danny Glover and Mel Gibson. ...Read More...   //

Clayne Crawford Is the Best Thing About Lethal Weapon

A cursory glance at Fox's recent development history reveals that the network is desperate to launch a police procedural with legs that can likely take over for the long-running Bones when it (finally) signs off this year after 12 (yes, 12) seasons. It's where the Minority Report s, the Almost Human s ... ...Read More... //

'Lethal Weapon' Review: An '80s Action Comedy for Today

Last year, FOX aired Minority Report . It didn't work, but the network is still trying to find a police procedural based on a movie, hence Lethal Weapon . A remake of the iconic '80s film franchise starring Mel Gibson and Danny Glover, the TV show doesn't take too many liberties with the plot. Instead, it's as if they took the character (and sensibilities) of the films and simply transported them into the present. That may or may not be a good thing.   Read More... //
