Murtaugh and Riggs. Those names should ring a bell for most people.
From the late 80s and thru the 90s Danny Glover and Mel Gibson played LA Detectives Murtaugh and Riggs.
And regardless whose butt was planted on the toilet and which one was threatening to kill themselves, the movies were just flat out fun and funny.
Recently there has been a resurgence in movie lines becoming TV Shows, but Rush Hour was a dismal failure, and there wasn’t a bright window for Lethal Weapon.
But Damon Wayans and Clayne Crawford are the Murtaugh and Riggs we need on our TVs these days.
The budget for this show has shown early that it’s quite large, with multiple explosions and car chases, gun fights and destruction.
And best of all, the banter between the two of them almost feels as good as the original duo…but I have a feeling it’ll get there.
While Rush Hour got canceled early, and they pushed out the final episodes in the summer months, of a 13-episode first season, Lethal Weapon just got an expanded order for an 18-episode season, and I hope it gets picked up for a Season 2.
