"Terriers" review by Suzanne
Airs Wednesdays 10/9 c on FX

Terriers is a really good show. Everyone should watch it. It's about two private eyes, but it's not really a private eye show. Don't picture The Rockford Files or something. These are two loser-like guys who mean well, but their lives are messed up. Hank (Donal Logue) is a former cop who got thrown off the force because he was a drunk. He also lost his wife. They are divorced, but he still loves her. His partner is Britt (Michael Raymond-James, who was so great in True Blood), a former thief. Britt has a great girlfriend, Katie. All three actors are fabulous, and the writing is top notch.

It's hard to say what kind of show it is because it's quirky and fun, but it's also very serious and dramatic at times. It's kind of like life, and like life, it has many unexpected things happen. It definitely keeps you guessing as to what will happen next. Things never go the way Hank and Britt plan, that's for sure. I've watched about 9 episodes of the show now, and they are all excellent.

The show takes place in San Diego, which is my hometown. This is not the tourist town they are showing. It is the real town that people live in, albeit the seedier aspects of it. Having grown up there, with a father who was a drunk, I can relate to the show. But anyone should enjoy it because it's just a really really great show (like most shows on FX are). Oh, yeah, it has cute dogs in it, too, which I appreciate, being a dog lover. But it's not, in general, a "cute" show, either.

I haven't watched a lot of shows on FX regularly because they seemed to be about people I wouldn't like, but the few shows I have seen, like Nip/Tuck, Rescue Me, Damages, et al. were great shows, with very good writing and acting. This one has that same caliber of writing, but the characters are also likable.

If you don't get FX or want to catch up on what you missed, you can watch it for free on Hulu or I suggest you do! You are in for a treat.
