Detective Lee is a reserved, by-the-book detective from Hong Kong who is a master martial artist. Detective Carter is the complete opposite - a maverick LAPD cop who plays by his own rules.
Detective Lee has come to Los Angeles to avenge the alleged death of his sister and look into her connection to a Chinese organized crime ring. When Lee and Carter are forced to pair up, cultures clash and personalities collide - but they do make a formidable team that gets results.
Oh, and the cousin is hilarious....I like him.
OMG, Chan and Tucker would want such huge salaries for the TV show it would just be way too expensive to make. In case nobody's noticed TV shows based on movies are the "cheap seats."....(another duh)....
However, I like this show. I LIKE that Yoo is doing most of his own stunts&fighting (he started as a stuntman), and I really like Hines' brand of humor--he's a Chris Rock knock-off and I like Chris Rock.
The script has some holes in it every now and then, but if the ratings go up, the advertising money will be coming in and the producers will be able to hire better writers.
In the meantime, I'm good with the show and look forward to it each week. Very few "action" shows on TV and I like this one.
Asian guy was bland and gawky. Black guy was a yackety clown. Bleh chemistry. Bleh excitement.
