Doesn't have the Vibe of the movies but as a cop/buddy TV series...it could work...
29 September 2016 | by (the Edge of the Cosmos) – See all my reviews

When I heard that "Lethal Weapon" is going to have a reboot as a TV series, I instantly thought what the title of my review it would be: "I'm too old for this..sht!". There's no way such a thing could possibly work.

The main concern of course it would be the cast. How can you make a "Lethal Weapon" without Gibson and Glover? Well, the answer is you can't. I mean not really. But, if you pack it nicely, you might end up with a decent police dramedy.

So, the cast. Clayne Crawford isn't Mel Gibson. He doesn't have his crazy eyes and smile. He is more like a sad version of Riggs. Damon Wayans is a capable comedian, a veteran in action comedies, but he can't bring what Danny Glover brought to the movies. It brings something though...

There is certain chemistry between the 2 leads, but has a totally different vibe from the original. It may grow on you eventually but not like the original pair.

The pilot episode (directed by McG) is full of action, cars, explosions, fights and shooting. For the sake of the show I hope they continue bring enough action to the upcoming episodes.

Overall: Reboots are usually disappointing (like MacGyver) but this one is OK. It has a different vibe from the movies, but it seems like extremely difficult to assemble a similar pair. As a cop/buddy TV series it might work, if the writers won't get lazy that is. I'll keep watching...for now...at least..
