Talk about addiction!,
This review is from: New Tricks: Season Nine (DVD)
I'm almost through the second season of NEW TRICKS.
Unless the writers have had brain embolysms, I plan to go the full distance.
The casting is as good as it gets: you will be in love with the four characters within ten minutes into the pilot,
and will enjoy the working out of each character's charm and eccentricity, even more than the narratives themselves.
Character-driven is a useless term - "Hamlet, one of Shakespeare's most clearly character-driven plays" - but when the author is musified by his or her creations, the plot is the least of it. Character is all.
Applause to the writers, directors, and the exceptional cast. Every night, before my cats and dogs, I dance to NEW TRICKS' theme.
Being seventy-two, of course, helps!
