Battle Creek cast

"Battle Creek" review by Suzanne 3/9/15
Airs Sundays 10/9c
on CBS

I enjoyed the pilot of this show. If it keeps going the same way, it'll be fun to watch. They keep a good balance between being a straight procedural drama and being a quirky, fun buddy cop show. Dean Winters plays Russ, an experienced cop in Battle Creek, Michigan, where they're short on money for everything. Josh Duhamel plays Milt, an FBI agent that comes there to help them with their cases. He has sophisticated machines, manpower, and forensic science. Russ is kind of an old-school cop who resents Milt right away. Milt is the type of guy who some people love and others loathe. He's very good-looking and is great at his job, which annoys some people, especially Russ.  They have very different ways of solving crimes, too.

Of course, during the first episode, they find some common ground. It'll be interesting to see where they go from there. This is a very different role for Josh Duhamel, who usually plays a very easy-going, normal guy, like he did in "All My Children" and "Las Vegas."  I did enjoy the drama, and I hope to see more.
