The Glades: TV Review

by Jesus Ibarra

The Glades premiered on A&E last year during the summer, and I stumbled upon on it looking for new TV shows to fill the void that is summer. To my surprise, I LOVED it. The series stars Matt Passmore, the latest in brilliant Australian imports (seriously is every actor from down under super talented?), as Detective Jim Longworth, a former Chicago cop who after being shot by his boss, moves to Florida with his settlement money to relax and golf. Joining the FDLE (Florida Department of Law Enforcement), he finds that Florida has a high crime rate that will keep him busy and away from the golf course.
