I have only watched the first 10 episodes; so there may not be any real spoilers in here, but just in case -- anyone who has never seen the show before, watch it for yourself first before reading on. OK, so on my Amazon Prime (in Germany, which always lags behind US in regards to TV) I found four seasons of The Glades popping up. An IMDb 7.5 rating, plus four seasons, the show MUST be good, right? Well, there is Florida as a back drop. And that's pretty much it. We've all had to grow to the main characters in, e.g., Dexter, Life, Burn Notice -- but at the end of those first seasons you could not imagine anyone else playing Dexter, Det. Crews, or Michael, and their looks really improved over time. This is not the case with The Glades. I thought it might be a lost in translation thing, because I actually have to watch the show in German (Engl audio option missing, thanks Amazon). But now it seems that in English the main actor is even more annoying, and so are the other characters. That whole struggling single mom thing -- but then she goes back and forth between let's be friends and no can do 'cause I'm married and bla bla bla. I mean, really, in what universe would this situation play out this way? Ridiculous. Then, there is the "oh, I heard about you, Mr, in Chicago..!" from anyone he ever seems to encounter. But not much seems to have really happened that could have had a significant influence to how he is doing his job now. Well, except, that his character claims to have been a good detective back in Chicago. I know, it's just TV, but I don't WANT to buy that whole stick the way it is portrayed. It's weird, actually -- even though it is not over-exaggerated, the show and characters do not come across authentic. And, as many have noted, the main character is way too arrogant over nothing.
