Review: Golden Boy

Golden Boy is a Cop Drama Retread with Style

Theo James, Kevin Alejandro, Chi McBride
CBS appears most comfortable when it can introduce the smallest of twists to its procedural formula, and Golden Boy (CBS, 10pm) -- a crisp, well-cast drama from Greg Berlanti and NYPD Blue alumnus Nicholas Wootton -- fits the bill.

Framed by fleeting flashbacks, the show features the youngest police commissioner in NYPD history, just as he's becoming a homicide detective with a group of wary colleagues.

As for filling in the seven-year span between then and now, that's the high-class problem CBS would like to have.

Based on previewed episodes and compatibility with the network's crimefighting Friday lineup, it just might get its wish.
