This hammy cop comedy tries, and often fails, to lampoon every buddy movie and law enforcement episodic that’s ever graced our screens. Taking its lead from the type of over-the-top action you’d normally find in the DVD bargain bin, it’s trying hard to evoke the same kind of silly chauvinism that made those movies a success. But there’s a reason why the show was canned after just one series and it’s that all too often The Good Guys fails to deliver the type of lowbrow laughs it sets out to mine.
Tonight, a broken vending machine provides the thin end of the wedge that puts our Dallas-based duo on the scent of a prostitution ring.
About this programme
3/20. A seemingly humdrum investigation into a damaged vending machine at an upmarket hotel leads Jack and Dan to a high-class prostitution ring and grisly murder.
