Lethal Weapon Campaign Thread: Some Partners Can Be Lethal




From FOX:
Combining action and drama with ride-or-die friendship and humor, LETHAL WEAPON reimagines the hit movie franchise, as it follows classic cop duo Riggs and Murtaugh, who work a crime-ridden beat in modern-day Los Angeles.

Grief-stricken after the loss of his young wife and unborn child, ex-Navy SEAL-turned-detective MARTIN RIGGS (Clayne Crawford, “Rectify”) moves to California to “start over” at the LAPD. He’s paired up with ROGER MURTAUGH (Emmy Award nominee Damon Wayans, “My Wife and Kids,” “In Living Color”), who’s just coming back to the job after a near-fatal heart attack. Riggs’ penchant for diving headfirst into the line of fire immediately clashes with Murtaugh’s prudent, by-the-book technique.

When CAPTAIN BROOKS AVERY (Kevin Rahm, “Mad Men”) assigns them their first case together, Riggs drags Murtaugh into a high-speed chase culminating inside the Long Beach Grand Prix and a seaport shootout with drug dealers – and despite his protests, the older cop feels more alive than he has in years. Meanwhile, Riggs gets a glimpse of why Murtaugh is so determined to get home safely at the end of each day – he’s got a wife, TRISH (Keesha Sharp, “The People v. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story”), teenagers ROGER, JR. (Dante Brown, “Mr. Robinson”) and RIANA (newcomer Chandler Kinney) and a newborn baby.

Riggs’ life-on-the-edge attitude makes him a priority case for the department’s psychologist, DR. MAUREEN “MO” CAHILL (Jordana Brewster, “Furious 7”). Rounding out the precinct is SCORSESE (Johnathan Fernandez, “Girls,” “Younger”), a pathologist with the LAPD who got his nickname after a stint in film school, which no one will let him forget.

By the time their first investigation ends, Riggs realizes he may have found something worth living for – a partner and friend, Murtaugh. And even Murtaugh figures this arrangement might just work out after all. If only Riggs doesn’t get them killed first…

I would have if I came in here first. I already submitted for next month too.

I still haven't watched this weeks episode yet, but hopefully tonight.

I hope we get a full season pick up soon.

Turns out my co-mod just happened to request LW for next month.

Finally watched last weeks episode...fantastic! I love everything about it. I think they're capturing he movies really well, yet still making it their own, you know? The bromance between Roger/Martin is EPIC! and I really like the friendship starting between Trish/Martin.

One of my favorite parts of the episode was the fireworks going off and the captain being like, where are Riggs and Murtaugh

Now we just gotta keep this campaign active

That's exactly what I think! Even though it's based on the movies and have the essence, it's still very original and not just a copy.
And those are my favorite relationships too! I love Trish so much! She is kind and strong and super beautiful

for you then:

It shouldn't be that hard to do.

In the movies Trish and Riggs get a long just fine, but here they're definitely forming a friendship which is really nice to see. And Trish is getting a lot more to do here as well, which like you said is wonderful because she's such a strong female character. I also like that Roger is still the 'old' one, he's still 50 etc but yet he's still played a bit younger, it's hard to describe, but it definitely works.

Not liking Maureen at all though. Didn't like her in the movie either though...so. :shrug;

I wonder if LW lasts long enough if they'll bring characters like Leo in? I loved him in the movies.

That gif set is AWESOME!

I agree

I think that the casting director did an amazing job! Everybody is perfect for the role. And ITA about Roger, if we think about it, nowadays 50 is not that old as it used to be in the 80s.

I'm right there with ya! I understand that her character is important, but so far not really connecting with her (I do like her in the tv show better than in the movies )

I am so hoping to see Leo eventually! He was hilarious!!!

I do like how the show is managing to keep a balance between funny and emotional scenes.
