Review

The thing about this show – with its odd-couple chemistry and corny-but-bulletproof formula – is that it could run and run. Only, not any more. Or at least, not with the leads who have made it work.

Clayne Crawford, who plays loose-cannon Riggs, has been fired by the studio after a series of warnings and on-set flare-ups where co-stars and crew complained about his abusive behaviour. (If you want a masterclass in Hollywood hokum, Google his face-saving apology, it’s a peach…)

It now looks as if there will be a third season, but with Seann William Scott in the Riggs role. In the meantime, a standard issue episode sees current-Riggs pursue an old foe.

Summary

Crimebusting duo Riggs and Murtaugh set out to unlock a case involving a veteran hitman who Murtaugh has followed for 17 years. The team members also find themselves wedged in a dangerous incident that tests their trust. On other fronts, Riggs struggles to find a connection with his father, and Murtaugh scares Riana with his overprotective driving lessons. Clayne Crawford and Damon Wayans star.
