Last night I watched the premier of Raines. It is rare when a pilot blows me away, and Raines was no exception. It seemed wrapped up in the premise instead of the case Jeff Goldblum had to solve. That being said, it wasn't bad at all. If the series continues to combine the same type of humor as the last scene with Raines and his partner Charlie with the overall tone of the piece, it should continue to get better and better each week.
A bonus to eagle eyed Boomtown fans was a cameo by Bobby "Fearless" Smith as the detective who found the dead private detective. It's good to see creator Graham Yost give a hat tip to his brilliant but canceled TV series.
