“Chase” Makes Me Run For the Remote

Annie Frost leads a team of U.S. Marshalls tasked with tracking down fugitives in Texas. She brings the baggage of being “raised” by a single father that is a career criminal. In the pilot episode, her team pursues a man that robs and shoots a family. On her team is Cole Hauser and the sultry… yes I said sultry Amaury Nolasco. You may remember him as the hottest con on “Prison Break” (I ONLY recommend season one). Jesse Metcalf plays newbie, Luke Watson. Apparently the ladies go crazy over this guy. Guess he was on a little show called “Desperate Housewives” back when it was actually popular. I wouldn’t know. I do know that I’m glad to see Rose Rollins from “The L Word” back on TV. We need more kick ass women like her.

Those split screen promos irritate me and other than that, I didn't see much advertising. The dialog is trite and obvious. The American audience has seen enough cop dramas that we don’t need to be talked down to. Kelli Giddish (Frost) tries extremely hard to come off as a tough-as-shit, no non-sense, risk taking, ass kicking super Marshall, that’s merely trying to serve justice. It’s all a bit forced and there is no chemistry between team members. NBC should start chasing some better writers. Unfortunately, it gives me no reason to come back for more.

Mondays at 10pm on NBC

Stay Tuned….(just not to this show)
