YOU GRADE IT
Stomping at the Savoy

Dramatic license aside, the show's not bad. It has promise. I'm generally in on shows with gangsters anyway, but Vegas fascinates me, and there's scads of potential in the time period too, with the city transitioning. The pilot drops hints of that potential -- at one point, Lamb, skulking around the back corridors of the Savoy, passes a bathroom with a "Whites Only" sign -- even if it serves up a fairly rote police procedural for the first episode. If, in a season or two, the show's still this formulaic (even accounting for the time and setting), that could be a problem.

Daniel is a writer in Newfoundland with a wife and a daughter. If nothing else, the show's setting will at least ensure there won't be any "Is this hotel pager friendly?" jokes. Follow him on Twitter (@DanMacEachern) or email him at danieljdaniel[at]gmail.com.
