Review

Swings and roundabouts in the action-cop potboiler. It’s not the most sharply drawn episode – dialogue a little loose, jokes a little flat, and so on – but on the plus side, Agent Palmer is back.

She is the sharp-suited DEA agent who looks like no DEA agent ever looked – willowy, blonde, supermodel cheekbones – but has a DEA officer’s disdain for local law enforcement. Unless the enforcement comes from rough diamond Riggs, with whom she has a hint of opposites-attract chemistry.

While they awkwardly waltz around each other, there’s a case to rumble involving a cartel that keeps doing drive-by shootings, and a sleazy lawyer called Leo Getz. As in Leo “Getz you off”.

Summary

Riggs and Murtaugh are forced once more to work with DEA agent Karen Palmer in order to protect Leo Getz, an ambulance-chasing attorney linked to the cartel. As the three delve further into the case, they begin to realise that Leo may not be the only one with a target on his back. Meanwhile, Riggs begins to view Agent Palmer in a new light, while Murtaugh is left worried after Trish makes a spontaneous decision. Damon Wayans, Clayne Crawford and Hilarie Burton star in this fast-paced series, based on the hit, big-screen movie.
