The Good Guys was no exception; in typical Fox fashion, I didn’t even hear about it until it showed up in my Netflix recommended list.
After watching the first episode, I was hooked.
Dan Stark is a classic ’80s hero cop, right down to the sunglasses and killer ‘stache. Jack Bailey is his young partner, concerned about his future career. They fight crime!
The show is a brainchild of Burn Notice creator Matt Nix; instead of loosely basing everything in the show in reality (like he makes a token effort to with Burn Notice), Nix goes hog wild and full Buddy Cop in every episode. It’s glorious.
Stark is a huge Foghat fan, and Slow Ride is practically his anthem.
