Six Important Reasons Why You Should Be Watching ‘Golden Boy’

Tuesday night CBS debuted another crime drama. Shocker. Of course, this time it’s a bit different. The set-up of the New York-set Golden Boy is a little more unique, the story-telling is slightly less formulaic, the characters are even have a little more depth than your average Eye Network crime-fighters. Even so, by the end of the pilot episode, it was clear the series still has a lot of work to do to pull itself away from being “your average CBS crime show.” With a surprisingly well-placed cast that includes Chi McBride of Pushing Daisies fame, and a sliver of potential this show could be a step above the rest, there is one thing at the moment that’s keeping us hanging on: star Theo James
