I’ve always been a big fan of action movies with a sense of humor. Beverly Hills Cops, Die Hard, Red, Lethal Weapon (the movie) are just a few that I could watch over and over again, never getting tired of them.
I was very excited to start to watching the show Lethal Weapon, based on the movie. First, I think the casting of the show was excellent. Damon Wayans and Clayne Crawford have great chemistry and the rest of cast complement them quite well.
I really enjoy the show. I think it has just the right blend of action, humor, and serious material that I find myself wanting to spend more time with these characters, perhaps more so than in the movies, wishing I had saved up the first season so I could binge and not have to wait another week for a new episode.
This morning, I watched the latest episode and I won’t ruin it for you, but watching the character arc for Riggs is interesting and this episode, the ending of the episode, was very insightful into this complex man who struggles with day to day living. This show has me on the edge of my seat, laughing, and crying all in less than an hour. It really is a fun show. It might not be the best show on TV, but it is one of my favorites.
