"Angie Tribeca" review by Suzanne 1/18/16

Angie Tribeca Binge-A-Thon: 25 Hours of Commercial-Free Angie Tribeca Episodes Plus Comedy with the Cast and Friends in Studio LIVE! begins Sunday, Jan. 17, at 9 p.m. (ET/PT); Season 1 of Angie Tribeca repeats weekly on TBS Mondays at 9 p.m. (ET/PT), beginning Jan. 25. All season 1 episodes of Angie Tribeca will be available via VOD, tbs.com & the Watch TBS app. Season 2 of Angie Tribeca will debut later this year.

I think this is a very funny show. It reminds me a lot of the old show "Police Squad" from the 80's by the Zucker Brothers ("Airplane" et al.). If you missed the TV show, they then turned into the successful "Naked Gun" movies.  This has the same kind of humor: very silly and fun, with lots of verbal as well as slapstick jokes. Nothing is taken seriously.  "Police Squad" was a spoof of cop shows of the 60's and 70's. This new show (by Steve Carrell) is a spoof of more modern cop shows.

Rashida Jones is the lead as lone wolf detective Angie. She plays the role fairly straight; at times she reminds me of Jennifer Love Hewitt.  There are many funny comedians and actors in the show. Jere Burns is spot-on as the always-upset police chief (reminiscent of another cop spoof show, "Sledgehammer").

You really need to check it out. Fortunately, TBS is making sure you don't miss it because they're airing it a lot, and everywhere. You won't be sorry if you like this kind of wild silliness.

MORE INFORMATION:

"The Shannara Chronicles" is an epic television event based on the sweeping, best-selling fantasy book series by Terry Brooks. Set thousands of years in the future, the story follows three heroes, Elf-Human hybrid Wil, Elvin Princess Amberle, and Human Rover Eretria, as they embark on a quest to stop an evil Demon army from destroying the world.  The 10-episode first season of “The Shannara Chronicles” will premiere January 5 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT on MTV, immediately following the return of fan-favorite, "Teen Wolf" at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT.

Thousands of years after the fall of Humankind, the Four Lands is in grave danger. The fate of the world rests on the shoulders of an unlikely trio: an Elvin Princess who dreams of a life outside of the palace walls, a beautiful, wild and wily Human Rover and a half-elf, who knows nothing of the great destiny that runs through his veins.
 
Having seen an apocalyptic vision of the world’s destruction, Amberle leaves the palace in search of answers. But when Wil and Allanon realize that she is the key to saving the Four Lands, they set out to
find the princess before the Dagda Mor’s Demons hunt her down.

About Angie Tribeca

Real, brooding and shockingly alive, TBS's first-ever police procedural Angie Tribeca is the brainchild of Steve and Nancy Carell, who are executive-producing the series through their Carousel Television. The series follows a squad of committed LAPD detectives who investigate the most serious cases, from the murder of a ventriloquist to a rash of baker suicides.

At the center of Angie Tribeca is Angie Tribeca, played by Rashida Jones in the performance of a lifetime as a lone-wolf detective who is none too happy when partnered with J Geils, played by Hayes MacArthurJere Burns plays the squad's apoplectic captain. Helping solve each complex case are detective Danny Tanner, played by Deon Cole; Dr. Monica Scholls, the quirky, bespectacled medical examiner played by Andrée Vermeulen; and Hoffman, Tanner's K9 German Shepard partner played by Jagger.

In November, TBS announced that it will introduce viewers to its first-ever police procedural with a massive, 25-hour, international, multiplatform launch on Sunday, Jan. 17, at 9 p.m. (ET/PT), giving subscribers the chance to binge on all 10 episodes of the first season commercial-free. Angie Tribeca will then move to its regular timeslot, Mondays at 9 p.m. (ET/PT), beginning Jan. 25.

In conjunction with its U.S. debut, TBS's Angie Tribeca will roll out on numerous Turner International entertainment networks in January. Turner's Latin American and German networks are set to join the 25-hour marathon on Jan. 17, while Spanish, Nordic and Asian networks (both truTV and Warner TV) will premiere all first-season episodes at one time.

TBS has already renewed Angie Tribeca for a record 10 additional seasons consisting of one episode each, giving viewers a season premiere and season finale in one really tight package. The new seasons are slated to air in late 2016.
