I haven't seen the film, if you enjoyed Goliath (after checking just now the main character was in that) and Suits before it became a meme of itself then you'd enjoy it.
Not seen Goliath but it's on my watch list for amazon and really like the look if it. I think I got to about season 3 or 4 of Suits and the repeated formula just got tedious - think I stuck that far just to see his red headed assistant each episode :D

Thanks everyone for the replies, this give me a few options to check out, ill check them out hopefully I can find a show or two I like.

Ill also check out Yellowstone since its also recommended.

Your list is good for some easy-to-watch buddy cop shows, add White Collar and Lethal Weapon to your list too.
Two of my favourites.
Lethal weapon would have been better if they had a better reason for bringing in the new star

Yellowstone is great viewing and I really enjoy it, however don't think too hard as it has some ridiculous plot holes throughout that make no sense if you think more than 30 seconds. Looks amazing however, I feel I watch more for the scenery sometimes.

Then you will really like Castle and The Mentalist, same episode by episode stories with an overarching storyline and really likeable characters with great chemistry.

I haven’t seen any of Lethal Weapon since they replaced Riggs, a real shame he screwed that up as the show was really good imo (as a fan of the movies, I think it stood well on its own).

The Lincoln Lawyer, felt like a mash up of Suits and Goliath, enjoyed it for the most part thinking it was a spin off from another show but it stands on its own.
I was curious about this. It's getting some hype about moving into Netflix' most watched shows, or something like that.

The first season should have been about 3 episodes shorter, a lot of filler but I powered through, that said there were some excellent moments throughout but I'd never rewatch. I generally will watch Jared Harris in most things, a great actor.
Absolutely agree about the first one needing to be shorter. There is no denying that visually it was stunning and the acting was superb. However, it just dragged for me and in the end felt like pulling teeth without any anaesthetic!

It is why I was initially unsure of The Terror: Infamy, but it is the right length (10 episodes) and so much better.

I forgot to mention that it does have subtitles in places as it mainly focuses on a Japanese American family in the prisoner of war camps in America but I think you will feel more satisfied with this one.

Absolutely no issues with subtitles, I won't actually watch anything with dubbing as it's almost always terrible.

The characters are half brothers, but with one on prime and one on Netflix not sure we will get any crossovers.
Ah gotcha - thought this was another actor sibling that took me by surprise. :D

Latest was finding out Pablo Schreiber (Halo, OITNB) was half brother to Liev Schreiber (Ray Donovan)

Reacher on Prime, three episodes in and enjoying it.

I enjoyed the Tom Cruise film but Alan Richardson fills the role better being 6'4" playing the 6'5" Reacher as opposed to Tom's 5'7".

Nearing the end of S2 of Ozark and getting a bit sick of the convenience of some of these plot devices, for the most part it's well written but then it's throwing in silly twists and turns that break any immersion. I'm still enjoying it and no intention of stopping, it is somewhat tedious at times though.

Also does anyone else find it feels artificially dark all the time, I understand it's dark, damp and depressing and it's a stylistic choice but any time we watch an episode, I need to raise the brightness on the TV.
