Terriers TV Review

September 9th, 2010

In case you are completely unaware of your surroundings, Fall is here.  This is the best time of the year.  The Future Mrs. birthday is in September, football starts up, and the new fall TV seasons get started.  Hurray for me.

A new TV show on FX premiered last night.  The show was oddly named Terriers.  I’m still not sure why it’s named Terriers, but it really doesn’t matter.  The show is fantastic!  FX has turned into a top notch Television Network.  Don’t believe me?  Then watch Sons of Anarchy, old episodes of the Shield, or It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

Terriers is about a former alcoholic police officer, played by Donal Logue, who now does side jobs with his partner, played by Michael Raymond-James.  The pilot is very strong mainly because Donal Logue is brilliant and his chemistry with Michael Raymond-James is strong.  They’ve set up a story arc that should continue on through out the season.  Typically I love shows that establish something to build towards.  It keeps you engaged even during slower episodes that always seem to happen in the middle of a season.

The pilot was really good and I’m hoping the rest of the season plays out just as well.  My recommendation is to give it a try and see where it leads you.  I give Terriers 4 1/2 boomers out of 5.
