Backstrom: Series Premiere Review - IGN

IGN: It's a damn shame Rainn Wilson chose Backstrom as his followup to The Office, because it is just plain terrible. On paper, a cop show starring the former Dwight Schrute sounds like a fun idea, but FOX's latest crime procedural is anything but. Granted, the show is pitched as more of a drama, but even so Wilson attempts to bring his dark humor to it, à la James Gunn's Super. Unfortunately, the writing is so cliche, so corny and so offensive that even the show's brief moments of levity fall flat on their face.

The story is too old to be commented.

Really? I mean...I know it wasn't great but it certainly drew me in. The "I'm a __________..." psychoanalysis is kind of interesting.
