The Glades Season 1 Episode 1 – Pilot

Air Date: Sunday July 11th, 2010/10:00 PM on A&E.

This show follows Matt Passmore as Jim, a Chicago cop who gets kicked off the force after being shot and wrongfully accused by his ex-captain of having an affair with his wife. After receiving his payout, Jim decides to moves to a small Florida town to join the state police.

The Glades Preview : Charm goes a long way in “The Glades,” on its face a fairly by-the-book detective procedural that floats above the bilge on the strength of offbeat humor and breezy attitude. Feeling more like a blue-sky USA show (think “Burn Notice”) than the gritty, dark doings that have populated A&E’s meager forays into drama, the series establishes Aussie actor Matt Passmore as a leading man to watch. Whether A&E can lead an audience into the swamp, alas, might be another matter. Almost sounding like a New York Post headline, the pilot opens with a young couple stumbling across a headless body floating in Florida’s everglades. Of course, that doesn’t give detective Jim Longworth (Passmore) much to go on — and that’s not counting the inconvenience of the crime, inasmuch as it conflicts with his newfound passion for golf.

For all that, “The Glades” is short on elements to lure an aud back there’s barely enough meat to feed a hungry croc once, much less every week  and A&E doesn’t really have a compatible dramatic footprint with which to introduce it. (Source: variety.com)
