Battle Creek

Show: Battle Creek

Verdict: Pretty Good

How much I’ve seen: Everything (Cancelled after Season 1)

Where you can watch it: The last 4 episodes are on CBS.com

I really wanted to like this show and I did eventually. The first 4 or 5
episodes were not very good, but it picked up a bit towards the end.
Unfortunately, that wasn’t enough to save it; it’s already been cancelled.

You’d think if the creators of House and Breaking Bad made a show together, it’d
be a massive hit, but it just didn’t work in this case. I was disappointed to
find out that, beyond the opening credits and some B roll, none of the show was
actually filmed in Michigan.

I will say that the casting of the two main characters is absolutely perfect.
Dean Winters as a guy envious of the FBI agent next door, and Josh Duhamel as
squeaky-clean “Mr. Perfect” FBI agent is just exactly right. I can’t imagine
anyone being better for either part.
