Watch The Good Guys

The Good Guys recounts the adventures of a washed-up detective named Dan Stark, played by Bradley Whitford, and his partner, a serious and ambitious detective named Jack Bailey, played by Colin Hanks. Stark enjoys reliving his glory days as a detective, even though he is now a cop who solves minor and petty crimes. Bailey at first has a rocky relationship with Stark because he is forced to work with him after being sarcastic towards his captain.

Stark is unfamiliar with new technology and prefers to do his job the old-fashioned way by using a handgun for nearly every task. His reckless and zealous nature provides a stark contrast to Bailey's careful and logical demeanor, but they build a strong partnership over the course of the series and contribute to the many comedic scenes of the show.

This series is an action comedy and features car chases, stunts and hostage rescues. This unlikely duo conquers Dallas with its comedy and action.

With a dirty cop behind the hit, and their lives on the line, everybody must learn that the only way to survive is to stay close to the ones they trust.

  • Dan enters the world of organized crime to catch mobsters who eluded him years ago. Things go awry though, when his undercover sting operation brings out two brand new groups of criminals. Dan will need Jack's help and a whole lot more to deal with so many dangerous mobsters and ultimately put the original ones behind bars.
