TV Review: Netflix’s ‘The Good Cop’

  • Variety
Netflix’s new series “The Good Cop” proves, once again, the streamer’s ambition to compete on every conceivable turf. Set to be released the same day as their shimmering prestige play “Maniac,” “The Good Cop” is a show that aims for as broad an audience as possible—and in the process ends up becoming a show that it’s hard to imagine anyone calling their favorite. A show with frustratingly little on its mind, “The Good Cop” quickly establishes its two leads as familiar personality types and then reiterates who they are, over and over, for ten episodes, with little modulation or development.

Worse, for a show that sets up and solves a new mystery every episode, the show relies on the utter lack of intelligence of both its two leads and everyone around them. The good cop of the title is Tony Caruso Jr., played by Josh Groban

‘The Good Cop': Tony Danza Bad-Cops Son Josh Groban in First Trailer for Netflix Dramedy (Video)
What if “The Odd Couple” were father and son police officers? You’d get Tony Danza and Josh Groban in Netflix’s new series “The Good Cop.”

Netflix unveiled the first look at its upcoming law enforcement dramedy during its Television Critics Association press tour presentation on Sunday.

The series sees Danza play a not-good-cop former NYPD officer who lives with his son, the very straight-laced Josh Groban. The two become unofficial partners as Tony Sr. (Danza) offers his overly-cautious son blunt, street-wise advice. In the trailer, we find out that Danza’s Tony Sr. is out of prison after seven years (definitely not the “good” cop). Despite this, he remains a favorite of all his former police buddies, much to chagrin of Tony Jr. (Groban), who is more annoyed than grateful of his father’s “helpful” advice.
