    Good premise but they're trying to develop the mystery's most significant character using the performer who has the expressive range of a turnip. I know there have been other shows that have done a great job of "being about what they're not supposedly about" - "Twin Peaks" isn't really about Laura Palmer's murder; most of the supporting characters in "Boardwalk Empire" are more interesting than Nucky. But when questions like "did Sting poison the dog" generate as much intrigue as "what's Mabel's deal?" that's a problem.

    It's like a cup of warm milk before bed. What I actually liked about it best was Reservation Dogs followed it on Hulu. That show is pretty darn good. I'll continue with this show and see where it goes. It's light and definitely is aimed at those who were just a few years too young to get into Matlock.

    Started watching it last night, will probably just keep watching it because it takes place in the neighborhood where my wife grew up.

    Looks like this was picked up for a second season. I was thinking it was just a one-off, and I'm not sure if they can keep interest for too long, but good for them.

    My initial reaction was 'this is what real New Yorkers are like.'

    I'm enjoying it. I love the premise. It's randomly funny and the not quite Rear Window/"Manhattan Murder Mystery" premise is fun.

    I think the episode that launched today was the funniest so far, especially Martin Short and his car.

    I’m happy to hear this is getting a second season… though I’m not sure if they will still be investigating this murder or a new one?!

    I hope this one gets resolved…

    Very hush-hush screen grab of Season 2's victim.

    Has anyone tried the thumb-to-the-roof-of-the-mouth trick?

    Somebody asked Steve about this on Twitter and he said the murder will be solved this season.

    Apparently Sting didn’t do it.

    Or did he?

    Once that you've decided on a killing
    First you make a stone of your heart
    And if you find that your hands are still willing
    Then you can turn a murder into art

    I hope they put out a "Soggy Bottom Balls" 45 for RSD.
