A The Good Guys a nyár egyik kellemes meglepetésének bizonyult, Matt Nix-től, a Burn Notice alkotójától egy könnyed szórakozást biztosító, remek párbeszédekkel tarkított akciókomédiát kaptunk. Nagyszerű az összhang a fiatal, a szabályokhoz, legalábbis eleinte ragaszkodó fiatal zsaru és az egyedi módszereket bevető veterán között, amiért az írók mellett természetesen a Colin Hanks, Bradley Whitford kettősnek jár a dicséret. Utóbbit külön ki kell emelnem, szinte lubickol a magát még mindig a 80-as években érző, kissé önimádó Dan Stark szerepében.
Jenny Wade elsősorban az eyecandy szerepet tölti be, az első néhány rész során látott Julius-t viszont szívesen látnák többször, akár Ruiz játékidejének kárára is. Nix-ék a bűnözők bemutatására szintén odafigyeltek, esetükben végletekig eltúlzott és ezzel együtt rendkívül humoros figurákat láthattunk. Dicsérhetők még a formai megoldások, leginkább a ragyogóan használt flashback, valamint az ötletes feliratok. A The Good Guys az e heti részt követően rövid szünetre vonult, a Fox szeptember 24-én a hozza vissza. A nézettség sajnos gyengén alakult, meglátjuk péntekenként miként teljesít majd.
Rengeteg idézhető párbeszédet vonultat fel a sorozat, ezekből készítettem egy összeállítást.

1x05 - $3.52
Jack: Are you asking me to predict the behavior of a man who uses his service revolver to open a mayonnaise jar?
Dan: Am I under oath?
Liz: Yes, I'd appreciate it if you stopped asking that question.
Jack: Dan, what are you doing?
Dan: I'm trying to cut a hole with my knife so that the cellphone-wavey-thingys can run free, because of your fear of the ricochet.

Dan: You could definitely pull off a 'stache.Jack: I tried it once. I did. I thought it would, you know, make me look tougher.Problem is, it didn't grow in on the outsides, only in the middle, so I-it just ended up making me look like Hitler.Dan: Boy, did he kill that 'stache.
