The Take Two premiere is coming onto ABC Thursday night and judging from the sneak peek below, we’ve got a good sense of how the main characters in Sam Swift (Rachel Bilson) and Eddie Valetik (Eddie Cibrian) end up working together. Let’s just say that Eddie’s not going to be altogether on board with that idea at first.
Basically, Eddie is going to be pushed into it as a favor — and, to go along with that, he could be compensated for taking her on a ride-along. He’s apparently relatively hard up on cash and this could help him, even if the idea of working with a Hollywood actress straight out of rehab is not his personal cup of tea. As a matter of fact, it’s something that he even dreads since he assumes that she will be a liability and he’ll be stuck as a babysitter.
Of course, the setup in this sneak peek is ripe with awkward comedy, mostly in that Eddie is trashing the idea without being aware that Sam is standing right behind him overhearing everything. It’s a familiar premise but at the same time, Take Two is really a familiar show. It’s not really trying to do something totally revolutionary in doing a comedic procedure — this is basically Castle but with the genders swapped out. Hopefully, it does prove to be really fun and entertaining — it has potential, but typically these sort of shows take a few episodes to really get going since you need to develop the proper chemistry and also get used to the rhythm of the show. Given that Eddie is a private investigator, we feel like these two could get roped into a wide array of different crimes — it may not all be murder.
