It's kind of fun to have a series more interested in building out a large ensemble of characters, where the cases are secondary to the characters bouncing off each other.

It's a breezy drama that doesn't demand much from the viewer, but Fillion's easy charm is tough to dismiss.

Kicking off the series with a laughable setup is never good.
