"Geils! Tribeca! Get in here!!!"
Verified purchase
Is this the best that TV has to offer?  Not by a long shot but if you’re into goofball comedy the likes of “Airplane!” and “The Naked Gun” or a TV series like “Sledgehammer” then you owe it to the sound of laughter coming out of your mouth to check out Season 1 of “Angie Tribeca”.  The show is a spoof of cop procedural shows and its humor is slapstick, playing around with words, sight gags, and skewering expectations.  It stars Rashida Jones who plays the titular Angie Tribeca, a detective who gets the job done when there’s a job to do.  She’s overcommitted, underplayed, and apparently exactly what her new partner Detective J. Geils (yes, like the ‘80’s band) needs in a romantic partner.  As they go on goofy missions encountering the likes of Helmut Frontbut (who has an abnormal midsection so that it looks like his, well, his butt is in front and he goes to great lengths to correct people who mispronounce his name: “It’s pronounced “Frount!-boote!”) our hero detectives solve the cases and get the bad guys but it’s all beside the point.  Recurring characters add to the comedic depth and include the medical examiner who is a bit too eager to pronounce people dead (Dr. Monica Scholls), the expert forensic scientist Dr. Edelweiss who always surprises by informing the detectives exactly what they already know much to their enlightenment (Dr. E is played by a game Alfred Molina no less!), and always yelling Lieutenant Pritikin Atkins who never tires of calling his detectives into his office.  The only drawback to the show is that the season is so short, a mere 10 episodes.  Here’s a moment or two that tickled me from each ep:
 
“Pilot”  In the opening sequence Tribeca shuts off her alarm and gets out of bed and hops into the shower.  The standard sequence then goes all Rambo crazy as she starts working out for no apparent reason and begins to trash her apartment.  This got me hooked watching her swing her towels smashing bowls and cups off the counter as if this was a perfectly normal part of her prep day for work!
“The Wedding Planner Did It”  When Tribeca and Geils question a warehouseman sweeping up just after the business evacuated he initially doesn’t give them any good info.  They’ve had about enough out of his useless info and tell him to call them if he remembers anything and he says, “Well, I did use to see them plant cocaine into the cakes” at which point they yell out him to call them if he has anything and they walk off.  It’s just so stupid it’s funny.
“The Famous Ventriloquist Did It”  Tribeca pretends that she’s a ventriloquist’s dummy and sits on Geils’ lap as he plays her in front of an audience there to see the famous ventriloquist Fisher Price (yep, Fisher Price!) played by famous ventriloquist Jeff Dunham.  We expect Geils to be great.  Guess what?  He sucks.
“The Thumb Affair”  When Dr. Zaius, an art collector/ historian, is caught for stealing a famous painting he yells out with finger pointed up, “I’ve been framed!” as two movers walk in front him with a big empty frame.
“Commissioner Bigfish”  When Geils is chasing down the police commissioner who has been visiting a ladies of the evening house that the detectives are busting Bigfish is running through the streets dressed up like a big baby, complete with bonnet and bottle.  Geils is in hot pursuit and when Bigfish stops and faces off with Geils he threatens Geils with his baby bottle.  Geils stops and chides, “What are you gonna do?  Give me a drink of your milk?”  And then Bigfish squeezes the bottle which impossibly douses Geils with a firehose amount of milk.  Icky and funny.
“Ferret Royale”  Keegan-Michael Key (of the Key and Peele TV comedy series) puts on a horrible spitting German accent and chews up the scenery.  Plus, his butt looks like it’s in front.  There are many great moments in this ep top to bottom as it parodies “Casino Royale” among other pop culture.
“Tribeca’s Day Off”  Tribeca is being forced to take a vacation day and she’s just sick about it.  When she fumbles through shopping for herself at a supermarket she is helped by a stocking clerk, Vic Deakins (played by famous funnyman Bill Murray), who is way too old for her but they flirt and she’s falling for him.  As they plan to see each other later and she walks off all squishy happy he starts throwing her packs of toilet paper as if it’s some sort of foreplay.  Weird uncomfortable funny.
“Murder In the First Class”  A chase scene occurs aboard an airliner that will make you wonder just how long the airliner actually is.  The cockpit scenes recall “Airplane!”
“Inside Man”  Lieutenant Pritikin tells Geils and Tribeca that they have to go deep undercover and they ask how deep in a deep voice.  He repeatedly says “deeper” and they continue to drop their octaves to understand just how deep they’re supposed to go.  Tribeca sounds like a man she goes so deep.  This is another rich ep all the way through.
“The One With the Bomb”  Some of the jokes are too obvious but are still funny.  When Geils is kidnapped and Tribeca and a SWAT unit burst into a house thinking they’ve found him what they find is a female mannequin with a bomb strapped to her chest standing next to a coffee table with a recorder.  One of the SWAT officers is immediately smitten by the busty mannequin and as he rushes toward her with outstretched arms he remarks, “Man!  Look at that rack!”  Tribeca shouts too late, “No!  Don’t!  It’s a boobie trap!”
 
What can I say?  I really enjoyed and laughed a lot at this stupid show!  My wife watched a few eps with me and after awhile she was asking if there was any new Tribeca on so it doesn’t have to just appeal to guys, though I think they are the main target audience.  I showed several of the eps to some juveniles that I work with and they were almost bewildered by them, laughing and then catching themselves and going, “What?  That’s so stupid!  That didn’t make any sense!” but they ate it up.  Unfortunately, Season 2 lost some steam.  Season 1 (IMO) is far better.

Crazy Normal Stupid Clever Funny Serious Show.
Verified purchase
It was not what I was expecting at all. At first I didn't really find it too funny, I was like huh?
But then some of its constantly overplayed silly stupidity became clever in certain ways and some parts became pretty funny. It's now obvious that the writers really put in hard work.
There definitely are some ridiculous situations to make you laugh for sure.
The episodes are just so short, everything is rushed and crimes are solved quickly, and usually by some sort of accident, as they often miss the obvious clues the first time around. But none of that has to do with the essence of the show at all.
Best part of the whole show other than Rashida Jones? That one cop's partner who is like a real cop dog. I mean like an actual almost-human cop. He just happens to be the coolest dog ever with a badge. He should be featured more. He's too awesome, it's hilarious. Love that he's featured on the Season 1 picture. That is the closest way of understanding the show without watching any of it.
Angie Tribeca is a glaringly in-your-face stupid, silly, clever, extremely deliberate, funny original show. Every mistake they make is amplified...sometimes like 4 times over and over... and crazy weird, impossible things happen in the most obvious ways possible...
Dr. Aidelweiss (sp?) Is the most ridiculously silly serious, dumb, carelessly careful genius I've ever seen in action. He's too unbelievable to describe well, but he is totally a walking/handicapped, but not really, contradiction. Okay, maybe HE is the best part of the show. Definitely. Him.
Alright so maybe I actually enjoyed the show more than I realized.. but I can say this. It will not fit everyone's brand of humor. I'm fairly confident that some people will absolutely hate it.
But I'm also sure many others will love it.
You know, the intelligent stupid ones who enjoy extreme contradiction and impossibilities in a world that kind of is already like that in real life... (my bad, cops).
There is no other show like it on TV.
Nothing comes close.
So watch it. Past the first few episode.
It's gotta grow on you a bit.

The "Tribeca" Trifecta: Laughter, Laughter, Laughter
Verified purchase
Frank Cotolo Tweeted that my writing of our (Frank and my) 1970's comedy radio show "Dead Air" was ahead of it's time and very similar to and at least up to par with Nancy & Steve Carell's TBS series "Angie Tribeca." I was and am of course flattered that someone would equate my comedic skills with the Carell's; I had to check it out. I ordered season one of the show and could not stop watching for two days! I binged on the first eight episodes. It was non-stop laughter. Everything -- plot, theme, and even the simple laws of physics -- takes a back seat to humor. The cast is perfect for this series. Rashid Jones is delightful and should be included among the very best comediennes every on the screen (like Lucille Ball, and Rosalind Russell) as the lead character Angie Tribeca. Deon Cole, Jere Burns, and of course Jagger a four-and-a-half year old Belgian malinois K9 as Officer David Howard complete this zany L.A.P.D. crew. Hayes MacArthur plays Jay Geils Angie's partner/love interest but neither relationship gets in the way of the comedy. Andree Vermeulen as Dr. Scholls and the great Alfred Molina as Dr. Edelweiss (who, in each episode is featured "suffering" from a new disability or malady until Edelweiss becomes frustrated with the limitations) create hilarity in the forensic lab each and every episode. Season One guest stars who grace "Angie Tribeca" include James Franco, Bill Murray, Gene Simmons, and Lisa Kudrow all of whose considerable acting and comedic talents just add to the superior writing of the Carell's. Of special note is the appearance of guest star Cecily Strong (S1 Ep7) whose scene playing a murder suspect as a rich, Beverly Hills socialite with way too much Botox has me rolling on the floor now just thinking about it.

Sure, I could tout this show for the simple reason that human nature would tend to have me elevate "Angie Tribeca" just so that I would be elevated in the process. Trust me, comparisons to my long-forgotten radio show aside, this show will, honestly, have you laughing out loud!

A very funny cop comedy series

I had a good time with this series. It reminded me of the "Naked Gun" and "Police Squad" series.

Unique style of comedy that grows on you!!!
Verified purchase
After watching the first episode I wasn't sure it would catch on but as I watched more episodes it grew on me. Dispite others calling it a rip off of Police squad(Naked Gun movies were better) or Sledgehammer neither one had a dog that drove a police car and was treated like a human being. They even bleeped his barking like he was saying bad words (how hilarious)!!! Angie herself has a unique style of comedy that is different from other parody shows even though I used to love watching Sledge Hammer and I'm glad that police parody shows are making a comeback even though Angie's Season 2 did start out a little rough but then got better with episode 2!!

Smart buy! This series has me rolling
Verified purchase
I've been hearing about this crazy series, but since I work evenings I've never had the chance to see it. So I bought Season 1 to watch on my Kindle. Smart buy! This series has me rolling! Same slapstick humor as in 'Airplane', 'Top Secret' (tell Val Kilmer it's not THAT bad), or 'Blazing Saddles'. The people who wrote negative comments probably don't like Blazing Saddles for being racist. Granted, BS--LOL...BS...I just noticed that...hehehe--makes liberal use of the 'N' Word. But don't forget: Richard Pryor help write it. I'm not excusing it; I'm just saying don't take it seriously. As for Tribeca...Season 2, baby!

Not necessarily for everyone
Verified purchase
If you are into sophisticated humor this series is definitely not for you. However, if you are into sophomoric inane humor the way I am you will hit pure gold with this TV series. Can't wait until they make season 2 available.

I was a big fan of this show and TBS literally never show reruns of it. The DVD works perfectly no problems at all.
