The Good Cop
From the Daily Dot
While the internet generally looks at Netflix as the home to forward-thinking, critically acclaimed shows like Bojack Horseman, GLOW, and Maniac, the streaming giant is equally invested in producing the kind of television that there has always been. The latest entrant in the Netflix library to give audiences something comfortably familiar is The Good Cop. Tony Danza plays Tony Caruso Sr. and Josh Groban plays Tony Caruso Jr. The elder Tony is an old-school NYPD cop who has been disgraced by corruption charges and drummed out of the force. The younger Tony is a clean-as-a-whistle detective who wants to be the kind of cop his father never was. A dead mother/wife and a lot of family baggage complicate matters as necessary. The Good Cop has the predictability of a warm blanket. After 45 minutes, the case and dozens of jokes will have been cracked, and the viewer will be ready to go on the pleasantly predictable ride all over again.
