The Fall 2010 season has been a rather disappointing time for television. Returning shows that were once hits have lost their luster, most new shows are duds and/or retreads, and some have already been canceled, moved, or otherwise.

Then Terriers showed up out of nowhere. With an advertising campaign that could be called skittish at best, the commercials gave very little insight to what the show was about. I tuned in both as a Donal Logue fan and because FX has proved to be a safe haven from the same-old trash I'm used to finding on network television.

The show centers around would-be private eyes Hank Dolworth (Donal Logue) and Britt Pollack (Michael Raymond-James...from True Blood). They quickly stumble into a case over their heads, having to deal with local corruption, the police force, and the town's everyman. We also see snippets of the home lives of the two heroes. Hank still pines for his ex-wife Gretchen (who's also remarrying), while Britt lives with his beautiful girlfriend Katie, each with their own secrets. The cast melds well and there is a great deal of chemistry among all the characters.

The way the show deftly handles episodic content and a more serialized arc calls back to the first season of Veronica Mars. It would be possible to jump in at a random episode since they play a "previously on Terriers" bit at the start, but anybody remotely interested in the show should definitely watch these in order.

Six episodes in, I can safely say that Terriers is not only the best new show of the season, but quite possibly the best show currently airing. Smart, funny, dramatic, well acted, and never boring throughout the hour long length. The genre blending is fantastic without resulting in harsh changes in tone.

For all the crappy shows out there that get lavish box sets, where is the DVD for this fine show?

The writing is just complicated enough to intrigue the intelligent viewer; the acting is wrenching at times, dastardly humorous at others. It's tragicomedy at its finest, with a dash of mystery and conspiracy.

It had the worst promotion ever, and the title didn't do it any favors. If you liked Veronica Mars, Life, Firefly, The Shield, Justified, or Six Feet Under, or any other quirky show, try this one.

It's hard to characterize this captivating show. If you like shows with great characters, watch it. Sly humor? Watch it. Action? Watch it. Sexy people? Yep. Originality? You got it. Also funky intro/ending music (too little of it) and first-rate acting. I haven't seen something this good in a long time. Thank you FX.

Anyways if you think you are an intelligent person & you like TV, you will love this. Buy it. NOW.

Easily one of the best shows of the '00s, Terriers was cancelled after one season. And, unfortunately, if it hadn't been for word-of-mouth, I would not have watched it. Do you remember the ads? Weird shots of a beach and a terrier barking. The only reference to the show was that it was set in California, near the beach. There was no indication that it was about an ex-cop and an ex-con teaming up to take down a network of criminals working to exploit a land deal. The character development throughout the season is amazing. Brilliant, brilliant writing. At least they were able to end it properly. Hopefully, Fox will do the right thing and release this on DVD/Blu-Ray.

Stupid stupid people. How could you morons leave a show like this to be canceled while watching your pathetic cop shows about Los Angeles or Miami. Law and order doesn't get cut but stuff like this does? Ncis? Whatever.

Such a great show. Honestly it saddens me to see shows like Law and Order for which their are a dime a dozen and every one of them doing perfectly well in popularity (with variations like Miami and Los Angelas for every one of em) but when one show steps out of the mold a little and accomplishes something really great it does poorly. Its like people just want the same old cop show, over and over and over again. If i ever meet someone like that i'm going to yell at them. Just sayin'.

If you have tv, support this if you don't, then buy it online somewhere. It's the least you can do. I personally have this from amazon which is how i've seen it without television but it's sold all over the place in downloadable format.

This is a well written, well acted series that was probably the most underrated show on TV this last season. It's kind of a buddy thing, kind of a human interest thing, kind of a detective/crime kind of thing. It's not a shoot 'em up, or an endless car chase kind of thing with tougher than tough leading men and dead bodies piling up with every episode. It's better than 90% of what passes for entertainment on TV. Watch a couple of episodes and you'll honestly begin to care about the characters and the story line. It's not perfect but I still highly recommend it to anyone.

This is an excellent show that unfortunately suffered from poor advertising and an innocuous name. Most people have no idea what this show was about and even I wasn't sure going in to watch it. Thankfully, I was blown away by the superb writing and acting on this show. In the first episode I loved the characters and started to get a feel for it as a procedural detective type show starring two anti-hero types, but that gets flipped on its head when you learn that there is also an arcing overall storyline. All performances are excellent and I've never been a fan of Donal Logue before, but he is perfect as Hank Dolworth.

You may be checking out this series because almost EVERY critic is saying it's one of the best shows of the 2010 TV season and it really is. Unfortunately, I bet you're reading about this after the show has been cancelled which is almost a guarantee because of the poor ratings. Suffice it to say, pick this up and you won't be disappointed as it absolutely stands on its own. Think if it as an excellent miniseries and not a TV show that you don't want to bother watching because it has already been cancelled. If you enjoy cop type shows, gritty realism shows (anything on FX, AMC, HBO, Showtime), or character driven drama's you'll love this. To give you an idea, I never review things, but I felt strongly enough that maybe this might sway one person to watching the series and getting the experience I got.
