FOX’s Rosewood (Wednesday, 8/7) is a procedural teaming a ‘private pathologist’ with a Miami detective. Do they solve crimes? Damn Skippy!

Does the show work? Well, the pilot suggests possibilities – mostly variations on buddy/cop shows where the partners start off not getting along but having chemistry – but despite the potential for clichés, the chemistry (there’s that word again) between Morris Chestnut (as Dr. Beaumont Rosewood Jr.) and Jaina Lee Ortiz (as Detective Karissa Villa) may – I repeat, may – make up for its missteps while the show finds its rhythm.

Anna's Team

What a morning! FBI Counter Terrorism Agent Erica Evans [Elizabeth Mitchell] awakens to a rumble that might be taken to be the harbinger of an earthquake and discovers her son, Tyler [Logan Huffman], hasn’t been home all night. The rumble intensifies as she calls him on his cell – he answers in a hospital, where he’s been treated for bruises from an accident. Elsewhere, Father Jack Landry [Joel Gretsch] is talking with the wheelchair-bound Roy [Stefan Arngrim] and Ryan Nichols [Morris Chestnut] is buying an engagement ring and wondering if getting down on one knee is too corny [“A classic, responds the jeweller. “Respect the knee”]. TV anchor Chad Decker is climbing out of the shower as the morning loop of his late night newscast is being broadcast. [I don’t have to tell you that there are big honkin’ spoilers throughout, right?]
