He's the guy. He's the hero of my generation. Eventually he became the nice guy with Parkinson's. And then more recently he evolved into the nice guy with Parkinson's who played a conniving lawyer. (Watch The Good Wife! It took me the longest time to find this show, but I'm glad I finally sought it out.) So I really wanted to like his new show, but I'm two minutes in, and now I want to garrote myself just so that I don't have to be around when the reviews hit.
And! Furthermore. Wendell Pierce is wooden and shit. Not every show can be The Wire.
Hope it gets better and fast.
