On the Viewer - Terriers (Pilot)
 by Fëanor

Terriers didn't sound like a show I wanted to see. I mean, it's called Terriers. What is it about, dogs? I like dogs, but... As it turns out, the show is only marginally about dogs, and is much more about a pair of down-on-their-luck, small-time private eyes in a beach town who stumble into big-time trouble when an old drinking buddy asks one of them to help his estranged daughter. The show stars Donal Logue as ex-cop and recovering alcoholic Hank Dolworth, and Michael Raymond-James as his partner and best friend. There's nothing terribly creative or shockingly new about this pilot episode, but it's definitely a strong entry in the storied genre of private detective TV shows. It's funny, smart, engaging, and emotionally effective. Logue is fantastic, especially in a scene where he has lunch with his ex-wife (played by the equally talented Kimberly Quinn), and suddenly realizes that she's planning to remarry. He tries hard not to show it, but you can see in his eyes that his heart has just broken to bits in his chest. When the next scene finds him staring hard at the bottles on the shelf at a liquor store, you're sure he's going to dive off the wagon headfirst. I actually said, "No, no, no" out loud.

I can see this show going great places. I'm gonna try to keep an eye on it if I can. You can watch the pilot for free right now on Amazon Video on Demand. I recommend it, obviously.
