Last year, the big-screen buddy cop classic Rush Hour got a television spinoff. Now it’s time for Lethal Weapon, the hit movie franchise starring Mel Gibson and Danny Glover, to be turned into a TV series.

Clayne Crawford and Damon Wayans star as loose-cannon Riggs and by-the-book Murtaugh, who are teamed up after both experienced personal trauma.

There’s good chemistry between the leads in this decent reboot, and the pilot doesn’t stint on the action, with a bank heist, a car chase that spills onto a race track during a Grand Prix, and a climactic shoot-out in a warehouse where a child is being held hostage.
