The Philanthropist "San Diego": Tale of Two Teddys

Narrative construct blah blah blah, mirrored storyline for corporation/foundation blah blah blah. Maybe my attention is lacking because it's so damn hot here, but it's not hard to see why NBC decided to bury the series at a 10PM time slot in the middle of summer.

Is it wrong of me to want so much more out of this Homicide: Life on the Streets/Marc Antony/Omar dream team? No exotic locale this time, unless you count the dance floor (Deadmau5 and Lady Gaga). Even the thoughtful montage at the end was backed by a club vet, Groove Armada, with their ballad with "Hands of Time," featuring folk legend Richie Havens on vocals.
