    If you are a child of the 1980's or early 90's you might have had a problem with Lethal Weapon being adapted from a major motion picture franchise to a Network TV series. Before it's debut it was getting blasted across the board by many internet trolls, openly admit I thought the idea was terrible and would be disrespectful to the fans and everyone involved with the films, But after watching the pilot I'm so glad I actually gave it a chance. This series is fantastic and actually expanse on the characters. This is it's own thing and to some degree it's actually much better then the films. For all the stubborn people who will not give it a chance as far as a adaption: Lethal Weapon and Lethal Weapon 2 are awesome 1980's flicks Lethal Weapon 3 is average at best Lethal Weapon 4 is God awful and proof the series had worn out it's welcome. It's also the entry in the series that jumped the shark. The first season of Lethal Weapon as a whole is 10x's better then Lethal Weapon 3 & 4 combined! Matt Miller didn't so much re-boot the characters he re-introduced them, and expanded on all the characters we already know and care about, and did it in a very smart and refreshing way. Even though the tone is more "watered down" TVPG-13, It still very good with plenty of HQ action and humor, Besides the writing the cast is really impressive. Damon Wayans (Roger Murtaugh) When I first learned Damon was cast I thought it was poor casting, But he is a much different updated version of the character, he has always been awesome at balancing action and comedy this role is no different. Clayne Crawford (Martin Riggs) Amazing choice again this version of Riggs has been changed up a bit he's now a former VET turned TX Cop who moved to CA after the death of his wife. At first I hated the mustache it's very 1970's! But he makes it work along with the "hair" always pulling his hair over his eyes. This version of Riggs is actually better then Mel Gibson's version, mostly due the time allowed by a TV series, to explore the character in depth. Keesha Sharp (Trish Murtaugh) Trish has been majorly updated now she is a Attorney Keesha seems to be having a blast with this role you can tell she is trying to make it her own (Trish in the films was a side character to some extent with this series she is being fleshed out) Kevin Rahm (Captain Brooks Avery) Kevin Rahm is a great character actor Captain Avery is Murtaugh former partner Michelle Mitchenor (Officer Sonya Bailey ) Jordana Brewster (Department Psychologist Maureen Cahill) Jordana is very good in this role you have very little to no info on her until the episode that spotlights her stalker then you'll look at her and see her much differently Leo Getz is introduced in one episode and while it's handled much different it works If you enjoy/loved the film series give it a chance it might just surprise you (There's plenty of very smart plot elements and Easter eggs from the films) It's hands down the best Freshman property FOX has aired for the 2016/2017 TV season and somehow was able to find a audience (more episodes were added to the first season) and it's returning for a second season this fall So now is the time for those who wrote it off or just wasn't able to DVR it Binge watch the first 4-5 episodes and try and prove me wrong as a freshman season it's impressive and very enjoyable nostalgia aside 9.5/10

    If you don't give this a chance, you will regret it. In this day and age, when there is very little creativity or originality on the small screen, it seems that more and more TV writers are falling back on trying to adapt the big screen, to the little screen. They are doing this at a success rate of about 1 success to every 500 tries. I must admit that the fist night my wife and I sat down to watch "Leathal Weapon's" premier, I had very little hope that this was going to be one of those success'. I'm happy to say, I was wrong. That first night was pretty good. So, we made a "date" to watch again the following week......and the next.......and the next, until this was one of those very, very rare shows, on network television, that we follow on a regular basis. Like the movie, the show revolves around 50 yr. old Detective Roger Murtaugh (Damon Wayans), and his loose-cannon new partner, Martin Riggs (newcomer Clayne Crawford). After a couple episodes, as the characters evolve, you find out that it's about a lot more than these two cops that are total opposites. In addition, there's almost non-stop action, humor, drama, romance, and every emotion you can experience. As the series progressed, I was really impressed by how well Wayans' character, and that of Crawford's, played off each other. The chemistry is very good between these two actors. I can't recommend this highly enough. It is a real gem in what is usually a place I don't relate with quality. GIVE THIS SHOW A CHANCE!!!

    I'll admit, I was very skeptical about this TV show when I heard about it. I love the movies, they've always been a favorite. How could they possibly do better? Well...it's amazing what TV shows can do to expand and develop characters that you thought you already knew. With more time dedicated to Riggs and Murtaugh, we get to see more of what makes them tick. Is the show better than the movies? No...not necessarily. But it's different. And what makes it different also makes it great. If you like the movies, I think you'll enjoy the show. You just have to let go of the fact that it isn't Mel and Danny. Cause Clayne and Damon are a good pair too.

    Being a fan of the original movies, I wasn't sure what to expect with the TV series. After a few episodes, Lethal Weapon became a weekly must-watch show. So there was no question when this Season 1 collection was available during the Black Friday sales that I would buy a copy. It was also no surprise that I rewatched all the episodes in about one week.

    Not really trying to build on the Lethal Weapon movies but rather taking the initial concept and re-booting it. Wayans and Crawford have a chemistry as actors that works quite well. Entertaining police drama with just the right amount of personal interest and comedic relief. Will be looking forward to release of Season Two to binge on those stories.

    I really like this TV show, it has action, comedy and drama all in one. This show is like watching the movie but having a new one every week. and it's a show that if you watch it over again sometimes you'll spot things that you missed the first time.

    I was skeptical about this show originally because none of the cast from the film series were involved, however, this show really is entertaining! I enjoyed its first season, with the combination of comedy and action. Funny show.

    I really like this show I was surprised with how good the show really was it gets you more in-depth with Riggs and Mertaugh and fills in a lot of blanks, I don't usually like TV spinoffs of movies but this one makes the grade.
