Synopsis: Combining action and drama with friendship and humor, Lethal Weapon reboots the hit movie franchise, as it follows classic cop duo Riggs and Murtaugh, who are working a crime-ridden beat in modern-day Los Angeles. Grief-stricken after the loss of his young wife and unborn child, ex-Navy SEAL-turned-detective Martin Riggs (Clayne Crawford, Rectify) moves to California to “start over” at the LAPD. He’s paired up with Roger Murtaugh (Emmy Award nominee Damon Wayans, Sr., My Wife and Kids, In Living Color), who’s just coming back to the job after a near-fatal heart attack. Riggs’ penchant for diving headfirst into the line of fire immediately clashes with Murtaugh’s prudent, by-the-book technique. It’s clear from the moment they meet, this partnership could be lethal. – Fox
Why We’re Watching: Lethal Weapon is a classic buddy cop movie from the 1980’s which starred Mel Gibson and Danny Glover. The first movie was filled with great action and comedic moments of which the subsequent sequels tried to retain. Hollywood being Hollywood is now trying to make a TV series out of the franchise; no surprises there. However, the trailer for the series looks very promising, so giving it a chance to impress may be worth it…hopefully.
