| Amazing, but not given any chance by FOX
Standoff could definitely shine if it was given a chance. It has just enough action to satisfy you but not too much and the writers make the character plots interesting but not overpowering. It is too bad that FOX refuses to give great show a chance. THis is an amazing show but of course FOX doesn't give chances to any shows except the popular ones. The only complaint I have on this show is that it doesn't show enough of Matt and Emily's relationship. It is very witty and has a few funny lines that keep it real. This is an awesome show that deserves a chance. This show is about two hostage negotiators who have a secret relationship and can't show it in the office. When Matt admits the relationship over the radio to a hostage taker (ht)the whole office knows and his FBI job is in trouble as well as his partners. Matt and Emily obviously care about each other and have trouble hiding it. They have to deal with dating and saving hostages from kidnappers, upset teens, bank robbers and saving themselves from some Mexican Drug traffickers. (only in one episode). It is an amazing show that is not given the time of day. Literally FOX puts it in the Friday 9/8 c death time slot. So of course no new viewers are going to find it. It is also being threatened by rumors that it has been canceled which is ruining and lessening it's veiwership. It has not been canceled by FOX .
