Really didn't believe they could pull it off well in replacing Riggs, but by allowing characters and viewers to note the grief of losing him, and creating a background for the new guy that blended in a good way, they actually pulled it off. Show looks to remain on my "look forward to watching" list of cop shows that are a mix of serious and comic personality interaction with character growth. I'm impressed.

Probably one of the best movie-to-TV adaptations. Great balance of action, comedy and drama. Hope it gets renewed for Season 3!

I thought I had seen the show had been cancelled, then I saw Sidereel didn't have it listed that way. That was when I found that Clayne has been fired! I'm like BAM! WHAT! I just watched the Season 2 finale last night thinking it was the last episode ever and sad as I thought I would now never know what would happen. Then I had a glimmer of hope, YAY! it might not be cancelled...then OMG WTF! Clayne gone and looking to recast Riggs! NO FREAKING WAY.

The best actor in this show is Clayne. Damon is good; however, the dynamics between the two are nearly perfect. I don't think someone else recast now would capture the same momentum. The TV show made me feel like I was watching the movie series again. I feel without Clayne the show will sink. However, I also thought the same of Spartacus, that main lead ended up with cancer and unfortunately passed away after the 1st season. STARS did recast and found a good replacement and the show did survive, and I enjoyed the hell out of it.

That being said lightning rarely strikes twice, granted I'm comparing 2 completely different shows from 2 completely different networks - many reading will probably say "Spartacus? had his own show?" Truly, I don't think Lethal Weapon TV Show would make a successful 3rd season with Riggs replaced. There is way too much invested in the current character as is, if he is to go permanently, I 100% feel the show will end up going as well.

The other "idiots" out there thinking he is so easily replaceable or all his emotional moments are "weak" story plots...IDIOTS is all I can really say. Do you not understand acting and an actors true job of making you feel for the character, emotional moments are needed. Now someone like Keanu Reeves who has the acting emotional capability of a rock could never pull off Riggs. Clayne has shown himself to be pretty much the perfect guy to fill the role of Riggs.

This has been a great show. I loved it. I would love to see more. If Clayne goes I honestly will not be able to watch it.

I was really enjoying the show and then they go ahead and fire one of the main characters that truly makes the show all because he got angry about the cast and crews safety from flying debris on a episode he was directing, Now they got a bright idea to replace him with some new actor they must enjoy shooting off the their own foot because from the reactions of the viewers very few will stick around to watch season 3 ( if it gets picked up again)

Well, my husband has given up! He asked me to stop DVRing this program from here on out. It has become too stupid for him. Comedic was acceptable, but stupid went too far. He just couldn't take it any longer. Too bad, really liked these actors. What is wrong with these writers.

In the films this formula was OK.

On TV - this is just filler TV - repeated on Channel 5 (UK) over and over like NCIS and CSI - just does not have any quality. Imagine if Luke found out Darth was his Dad every night - yawn.

Move on - we need a new WIRE or FRINGE !
