Dwight rocks

Good cop show..not for kids..some violence and right amount of humor in show to make characters likable.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (2):
Kids say: Not yet rated

The fact that Lee's character channels Elvis at a local blues club on his nights off is the most interesting thing about this humdrum detective show set in one of America's most vibrant cities. But even that doesn't really deliver, as Lee is clearly lip-synching to someone else's vocal tracks, producing a soulless performance indeed.

Couple that with the realization that Memphis Beat was actually filmed in New Orleans, and you've got a show that lacks any connection to the city it's supposed to love. Talk about a kick in the ribs.
