I've enjoyed all of Nathan Fillion's work, but I wasn't sure I'd like this. There are enough police procedural shows out there, and I'm tired of the genre. I also realize that the star is getting a bit long in the tooth, too - well, he's not Captain Reynolds anymore, is he? But the script includes that. And frankly, after one or two episodes, I was hooked. I like the characters; their personal lives don't seem to be soap operas, and there have been only one or two episodes that were clunkers (in my opinion). I love this show.
