Fox’s ‘Backstrom’ Is Another Lazy Procedural About an Unlikable Genius Antihero

Backstrom is so similar to House that comparisons between them are unavoidable. Both Fox shows revolve around an obnoxious and irascible male protagonist prone to making racist and sexist remarks, who get off on being offensive for the sake of being offensive, and who often alienate those who are dumb enough to try to help them.

It’s a lovely sequence of the two friends having fun (and features some cool directing choices, such as them on the escalator) and going from movie to movie. Then, at the end, they return to the sleepy (and likely stoned) employee at the box office with “complaints” so they snag their way into another pair of free movie passes. Another small victory that means volumes. … Read More
