Damian Lewis plays fruit loving Zen disciple Detective Charlie Crews, the beautiful Sarah Shahi as Dani Reese (in real life due to her pregnancy she is temporarily replaced by Gabrielle Union as Jane Seever), and the cool Adam Arkin as his live-in friend Ted Early (he deserves more air time!). The new police boss is Donal Logue as Captain Kevin Tidwell who is really well cast but definitely needs a haircut.
Like all the good recent dramas (Dexter, The Mentalist) there is a thread running through each series that slowly gets revealed. Who were responsible for framing Crews for murder? In the second series he continues to get closer to the main protagonists in the conspiracy that may include rogue cops, FBI agents, and Russian mobsters. Maybe too close.
The series continues to be original, involving, and well acted. The highlight of each episode is the way that Crews comes up with the answers due to his alternative look on life and people. Do not miss it.
I'm not sure if a third series was needed as the loose ends were pretty much tied up. It's now a thing of beauty like Life on Mars. The final episode of series two had me enthralled from start to finish as I had no idea what was going to happen (it had the feel of a movie) and the last five or six minutes at the orange grove were breathtaking and I had to watch that section several times over as soon as I finished it because the revelation right at the end if you can call it that (I won't spoil it) had me close to tears and I had to watch it again.
You should see this. TV doesn't get any better. Take note ITV, BBC and Channel 4.
I found the series absolutely mesmerising and I really cannot understand why it was cancelled so quickly. There are a few things left dangling at the end but on the whole there is a satisfying end to the central mystery. To be honest though, the aspect of the series I enjoyed the most was the relationship between the characters and the humour in the situations they found themselves in. It was often the little details that had me chortling, Crews's cars, Ted and his relationship with Charlie's dad's fiancee are just a couple of the things to watch out for.
Excellent value - wish there was more
This is a cracker of a series , and thoroughly deserved a third season....
Damian Lewis is a brilliant lead, and the whole thing is brilliantly written...
The first series was quirky because it was predominantly serious and only hinted at humour. I enjoyed it and was looking forward to the second series. This series has become significantly more twee/cutesy/up itself. It's virtually slapstick in places. The script has also got more predictable; I can often chime in with the next line. The puzzles in each episode are getting a bit more bizarre, reminiscent of the X Factor, Sherlock, etc. and aren't really connected to the underlying theme of who set Cruse up.
So, its a decent watch, but uneven. Shame. Damien Lewis is a good actor.
