I’m a very lucky girl because today I get to bring you my personal thoughts on a new series. King & Maxwell, based on the popular books written by David Baldacci, will premiere on TNT Monday, June 10th at 10/9c. I got to watch the pilot episode & I have to say I am excited! If you are a lover of all things crime, mystery, & witty then I think you’ll really get a kick of it too.
The main characters are Sean King (played by Jon Tenney ) & Michelle Maxwell (played by Rebecca Romijn). Both are ex-Secret Service which gives them actual training & knowledge. A pet peeve of mine is when characters suddenly know how to disarm a man in under 3 seconds without any training. C’mon now. These two also have the chops for crime solving although the pilot eludes to both former agents not being quite up to certain tasks.
I’ve actually read a few of the books this series is based on so I feel like I have a different perspective as well. The characters in the pilot are definitely Baldacci’s creations. This makes me sigh with relief since when you read a great series, you hate to see characters change too much. I also noticed there will be differences in the plot which also makes me happy because it will be truly “based upon” not word for word . Sean still reads romance novels & Michelle is still an outdoorsy, organizer.
If you are an avid crime show watcher, here is what you might want to know before watching King & Maxwell.
1. Although Rebecca Romijn is arguably one of the most beautiful women ever, they don’t focus on it. This isn’t one of those shows where shes pretty so she gets whatever she wants. In fact I think they worked pretty hard to make her “average” looking. Okay she’s still gorgeous but you know what I mean.
2. There appears to be chemistry between the two main characters…but that also isn’t the main point. This might be a side or future theme but this is definitely a crime show.
3. There is humor. Because they have great chemistry the humor is also great. It isn’t over the top or kitschy but makes a crime drama more fun for me to watch personally. There are some great sarcastic quips spread throughout.
4. I’ll be watching it. & if you want to be cool, you will check it out too! Monday, June 10th at 10/9c on TNT. Be there or be square.
