This restrained TV version of the franchise lacks the original's unusually effective blend of cop procedural, careening action, and sweaty desperation.

Some things are still entertaining the fifth time around.

The strong focus on the partners' bromance makes every other story point feel half-hearted.

Even for a show that wears its populist tendencies with pride, the show has little faith in its audience's ability to grasp a simple story.

Lethal Weapon doesn't feel like a cash-in. It has a vibe that effectively recalls the movies, with characters that are almost as enjoyable to spend time with as the originals.

It's a copy of copy of a copy and praying for something fresh out of that is, well, pretty ridiculous.

Actually, the entire show is a bit like The Grand Tour, except the cast is better looking and the dialogue is -- surprise! -- not quite as bad.

It's not that it isn't fun - it just isn't anything we haven't seen before, and television should be getting better, not lazier.

Really, it's less like the original Lethal Weapon than it is like that episode of The Simpsons where Homer bullies Gibson into making another one.

Ridiculous, yes, but it's a show that is honest about itself, with a surprisingly endearing performance from Crawford.
