Well... wow. This show was just... the word being tossed around here is cheesy, so yeah, I'll go with that. At first, I thought it was a joke or something, like they were making fun of those action shows and then it would go 'cut!', and we'd get the real show. I'm not being flip-- I really was expecting that. But as it went on... yeah that really is the tone.
It's actually a decent, escapist piece of cotton-candy. There's absolutely no substance there. Sadly, while it reminds me of Fastlane in some respects, it doesn't have the flash or the sharp writing that made that show so entertaining. Still, if there's space, I'll leave it on my tivo.
My one huge nitpick was that Mike allowed that woman to drive up and take 'the package' guy away from him. He was like 'Whew! It's just a girl! I can just put my gun down. Because a girl could never do anything!' What a dumbass.
Speaking of which, wasn't he also named Billy on BSG? I thought that was him and thought that was a strange coincidence. (Maybe it wasn't a coincidence?)
Yeah, his name was Billy on BSG too. In fact, that was really distracting to me- I wish they'd changed it. I kept on waiting (wishing?) for Mary McDonnell to show up.
I have a nitpick about the whole "Car on fire" thing - did it not occur to any of the super geniuses running FLAG to have the car run into a river?
Maybe it was too hot for that? Like water wasn't going to get the job done? Or they were too far from water? I'm kinda just fanwanking it here.
