If you use DirecTV, you'll have to set it to record all episodes. They list the original air date as when it first aired; not current. I set it for new episodes only and it didn't record this week.

Noonan, that is good to know...I am with xfinity but I bet I have to do the same thing, set to record all.

I didn't know anything about this show, and since I didn't watch the movie from which it was spun off, perhaps I'm not the target audience here. But I thought the first episode was lame enough that I didn't make it all the way through. I didn't think the main characters had any chemistry. It was like they were just reading lines to each other. YMMV.

I haven't watched it yet but my expectations are about as low as possible considering how long the show was shopped and was only able to land on Spectrum's channel.

I watched on demand on Wed. and yeah...it was not great but I like the main cast and will stick with it since I no longer need access to a different cable provider to watch. Put it this way, the tv Lethal Weapon series was much better so it is a bummer that the behind the scenes drama on Lethal Weapon stopped a pretty great police action drama in its tracks.

If you're not a fan of the Bad Boys movies and didn't see Part 2 where Union's character was introduced, then this series is probably not for you.

Like I said when I commented on this months ago when I bought season 1, this show is structured like a network cop procedural with little nods the movies.

Spectrum has exclusivity for season 2 for a year. So if FOX wants it, they can't air it until 2021.

The entire 2nd season was dumped online on 9/9/20. I have about 4 episodes left and I'll be thru with LA's Finest unless there's a 3rd season.
