Combining action and drama with ride-or-die friendship and humor, LETHAL WEAPON reimagines the hit movie franchise, as it follows classic cop duo Riggs and Murtaugh, who work 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, “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. When CAPTAIN BROOKS AVERY (Kevin Rahm, “Mad Men”) assigns them their first case together, Riggs drags Murtaugh into a high-speed chase culminating inside the Long Beach Grand Prix and a seaport shootout with drug dealers – and despite his protests, the older cop feels more alive than he has in years. Meanwhile, Riggs gets a glimpse of why Murtaugh is so determined to get home safely at the end of each day – he’s got a wife, TRISH (Keesha Sharp, “The People v. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story”), teenagers ROGER, JR. (Dante Brown, “Mr. Robinson”) and RIANA (newcomer Chandler Kinney) and a newborn baby. Riggs’ life-on-the-edge attitude makes him a priority case for the department’s psychologist, DR. MAUREEN “MO” CAHILL (Jordana Brewster, “Furious 7”). Rounding out the precinct is SCORSESE (Johnathan Fernandez, “Girls,” “Younger”), a pathologist with the LAPD who got his nickname after a stint in film school, which no one will let him forget. By the time their first investigation ends, Riggs realizes he may have found something worth living for – a partner and friend, Murtaugh. And even Murtaugh figures this arrangement might just work out after all. If only Riggs doesn’t get them killed first…

It's a fun show. Yes. Not giving 10 because of endless flashbacks (1, 2 or 3 fine but no... All the time) and trying to make not funny clichés funny. That did not work surprisingly so.

Really too bad. Otherwise this could have been a hit.

I wasn't expecting much, being as it's a TV Show of an already awesome Movie. They don't usually go well, but I was pleasantly surprised.

Even though it's clearly copying the Movie it's good in it's own right, it brings back the feel of the film.

Movies turned to Shows are always tricky, and after Rush Hour I lost a hope for something to be done right, but thankfully Lethal Weapon proved me wrong. They got everything right and just the right pieces of the movie to make it a show of its own. Damon Wayons and Clayne Crawford make for a dynamic duo who are different from Mel Gibson and Danny Glover but the same feeling you get when seeing true duo who work together in the right way. The storylines are great and in depth with the right flavor of action and comedy, and underlying story to each of the characters. They are really making it better and better every episode I watch, if you haven't seen it then you are missing out, they made this show their own and doing justice to the original movies. Keep it going and looking forward to more from these guys.
