Instead, the unvarying parade of earnest cop shows, featuring handsome young people and gruesome special effects having to do with startling and outlandish murders, will continue unabated. (I weep for you, America. I guess you’ll never figure out the difference between a dumb show and a smart show.)

At least the series had a self-contained story arc, and an ending that was fitting, not like The Riches, who were left forever frozen, in a seemingly insolvable jam. So if Terriers ever becomes available on DVD, go take a look at it.
