The Glades - Review


I love summer time, as that is when we are at the pool almost every single day.
What I do not like about the summer is that ALL shows go to rerun mode...
Or just leave the air completely.

Marc and I were just talking about how all of our shows are pretty much over for the season..
So now what?

Lucky for me...
I heard several people mention how they watched a TV show called "The Glades."
I hated that people were going on and on about how good it was, yet I had never seen it!
What was I missing?!

Then, I actually had the opportunity to review it.
And review it, I did!
Marc and I watched one of the episodes.
We caught ourselves laughing at Jim and how he acted at times..
At that point, we knew...
We were really enjoying this show!
Then, we immediately watched another episode.

I called to ask my mom if she had ever seen the show, she had not, but wanted to see it.
Of course, I told her that as soon as I was finished watching, she would have to watch it...
The second season starts June 5Th...
I needed to be ready to go!

I watched all of them in the span of a few days...
It was just that good!

Want me to tell you about it?
Well...
Okay!

You see, long story short...
Jim moved to Florida from Chicago...
His work partner is the Medical Examiner, Carlos...
Now, Jim is the main character, but quite honestly...
Carlos cracks me up and just might be my favorite!

The one thing that does slightly bother me is that it has its "only on TV" moments...
As in, Callie..
Jim meets her and immediately they have a connection...
Which in turn leads to Jim telling her everything about every case he works...
Real life, I don't think so...
Isn't there something about confidentiality?!

Oh, and Callie's son..
He just sort of goes missing for about 5 episodes...
Not sure where he is, but he returns as quickly as he left!

Other than that..
I am ready for June 5Th..
(As is Marc, we just discussed it again today!)
June 5Th is the second season.
I am glad we were able to watch Season One and be caught up..
BUT, it really isn't one that you have to see every episode to know what is going on.
It is a great show, not a soap opera!

Now we have not watched the "extra's" on the DVD, yet..
But they have plenty of them!!!!
Order your copy now...
It ships June 14th!!!!
Let me know... Are you a fan of THE GLADES?

Description from the A & E site:
THE GLADES stars Australian actor Matt Passmore as Jim Longworth, an attractive, brilliant, yet hard to get along with homicide detective from Chicago who is forced into exile after being wrongfully accused of sleeping with his former captain’s wife. Longworth relocates to the sleepy, middle-of-nowhere town of Palm Glade, Florida, where the sunshine and golf are plentiful and crime is seemingly at a minimum. But this town outside the Florida Everglades isn’t quite as idyllic as he thought, as he finds people keep turning up murdered. Each case pulls Longworth off the golf course and reluctantly into his element as one of the sharpest homicide detectives in the field.

THE GLADES Season 1 DVD is loaded with exclusive special features including unaired deleted scenes, gag reel, behind-the-scenes footage, featurettes, director and cast commentaries.
