Jeff Goldblum plays Jeff Goldblum and a detective with a writer's imagination who hallucinates conversations with the victim while trying to solve their case.
It should not be cast off as just another detective show. It has great banter, pockets of genuine emotion and a collection of camera tricks up its sleeve to bring the hallucinations in and out of frame seamlessly. The Pilot will sell you and by the last episode you'll both lament this show's cancellation and be grateful to have had as many episodes as we did.
Its cancellation is another example of "Network Suits" at large who couldn't recognize a well-acted show with an original premise and an audience who wanted more.
